Metaweb

This egg provides HTTP/JSON remote procedure calls for the Metaweb API and web services as used on Freebase.

(More information coming soon.)

Examples

Authenticating with Freebase

While Metaweb is rolling out and scaling up Freebase, the API can only be accessed by users who have a Freebase account (currently invitation-only). Thus, you must use metaweb-login! to establish a cookie-based session before using any of the other API procedures provided by this egg.

#;1> (use metaweb)

(metaweb-login! "myuser" "secret123")

Querying Freebase for album information

TODO

#;1> (use metaweb)
