Get Contents of Documents with the Exa (Formerly Metaphor) API

Retrieve contents of documents based on a list of document IDs. See the documentation. It is used to instantly get content for documents, given the IDs of the documents. We currently support extracts - the first 1000 tokens (~750 words) of parsed HTML for a site. Note that each piece of content retrieved costs 1 request. Also note that instant is a little bit of a lie if you are using keyword search, in which case contents might take a few seconds to retrieve.
