You must register your own API keys for the New York Times, for the search, popular, and newswire APIs. Store these in JSON format in ~/.config/nyt/keys.json as follows:

	"search": "search-api-key",
	"popular": "popular-api-key",
	"newswire": "newswire-api-key"


Just run the nyt executable to start the program. Once inside, press 'q' to quit, and use the left arrow to go back to the previous screen.
