How to use the EIKON API with MAC

EIKON download version is not available on MAC.

Would you tell us how to retrieve Refinitive data on API?

User has asked us the below .

<Am I correct in assuming that I need the Refinitiv Eikon API Proxy software to retrieve Refinitiv data via the Python API?

If so, where can I download the latest version of the Refinitiv Eikon API Proxy for mac?>

Would you tell me the correct answer?

Referring to this page, at the present time, Eikon cannot be installed natively on Mac® operating systems so users would need virtualization software to run in Windows to get the full desktop experience.

It supports macOS for web access. Sorry for this confusion.

You can try Workspace instead.

Hello @Kaori Nebashi

Alternatively, the client may use the Refinitiv CodeBook on the Workspace or Eikon Web version to run the Eikon Data API in the web browser. Please see more detail on this Use Eikon Data API or RDP Library in Python in CodeBook on Web Browser article.

The CodeBook is the Cloud-hosted Jupyterlab app in Eikon/Workspace with Eikon Data API and other Refinitiv Desktop Python APIs pre-installed.
