Example of Ruby code using the Mechanize gem


require 'mechanize'

browser = Mechanize.new
browser.post('http://bbcftools.epfl.ch/getprime/primers/search', {
                      "ensembl_version" => 81,
                      "identifiers" => 'mdm1',
                      "limit" => 2, ## max authorized is 1000                                                                                         
                      "organism_id" => 5,
                      "format" => 'json'
                    }, {})
### save the data in a file named test.json
browser.page().save 'test.json'

Result ('test.json' file)
