If you haven't already installed Splunk Enterprise, download it here. For more information about installing and running Splunk Enterprise and system requirements, see the Splunk Enterprise Installation Manual.
Either Node.js or io.js is required for server-side scripting, building files, running server and client examples, running unit tests, and generating documentation. Download Node.js or io.js and install the version for your platform.
- Both io.js and Node.js version 0.8.x and later also include the Node Package Manager (NPM), which is required for the SDK.
When running in a web browser, the SDK's only dependency is JSON support. If your site supports older browsers, you might need to include JSON handling for compatibility. To learn more, see the JSON website.
