Installation

Prerequisites:

  • Python 2.7
  • C Compiler with support for C++ 11 (Xcode, gcc, Visual Studio or similar)
  • Oracle 11.2 or 12c client libraries. Use the small, free Oracle Instant Client "basic" and "SDK" packages if your database is remote. Or use the libraries and headers from a locally installed database such as the free Oracle XE release.

    Oracle's standard client-server network compatibility applies: Oracle Client 12c can connect to Oracle Database 10.2 or greater. Oracle Client 11.2 can connect to Oracle Database 9.2 or greater.

  • Set OCI_LIB_DIR and OCI_INC_DIR during installation if the Oracle libraries and headers are in a non-default location

Run npm install oracledb to install from the npm registry.
