What is it?

clj-mql is a client library for Freebase (or any site that implements its API).

It currently allows you to issue unauthenticated version, status, read, search, and reconcile requests, and to issue write requests within the scope of a login. Logins and writes are performed over HTTPS by default.

This project has a dependency on clj-apache-http, as well as Clojure and clojure-contrib, and Dan Larkin's JSON library.

A recent build of clj-apache-http and clojure-json are in the lib/ directory; everything you need to use this code (apart from Clojure and contrib) is in the checkout.

Also included in this library is an example application which lists restaurants in a city.

You can use the enclosed shell scripts as an example:

$ sh restaurants.sh "/en/los_gatos"
