that depends what to you want to do with your client. For simple db-api like
access, you don't have to do anything, except installing cubicweb-common
and may be code of your cubes if you want to use logic contained in custom
entity classes. If you want to run a web server separated from the repository,
you should use the 'repository' config for the repository and the 'twisted' config
for the web server. Does that help ?
