npm install -g flexmonster-cli

Note: to use a trial version of Flexmonster, you will need to set a trial key. It can be found in the flexmonster/TrialKey.txt file. Copy the contents of the file and set the trial key via the licenseKey initialization parameter:

var pivot = new Flexmonster({
container: "pivotContainer",
licenseKey: "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"
});
