Client Libraries

The Google APIs Client Libraries which are available in a number of popular programming languages, make it easy to use the API.

Client libraries by language

In the tables below, the first column shows each library's stage of development (note that some are in early stages), and links to documentation for the library. The second column links to available samples for each library.

Using discovery service

If you use the Python, JavaScript, or other client library that relies on Google Discovery Service, you need to provide the location of the discovery document for the Reporting API v4.

Python

from apiclient import discovery

...

# Build the Analytics Reporting API v4 authorized service object.
analyticsReporting = discovery.build(
  'analyticsreporting',
  'v4',
  http=http,
  discoveryServiceUrl='https://analyticsreporting.googleapis.com/$discovery/rest')

JavaScript

gapi.client.load(
  'https://analyticsreporting.googleapis.com/$discovery/rest',
  'v4'
).then(...)

The Java and PHP client libraries are pre-built, but you can use the discovery service and the Google APIs generator to generate them.
