System requirements

  • Operating systems:
    • Linux
    • Mac OS X
    • Windows

    Note: This library is pure Python, so other operating systems with Python support may work as well.

  • The latest version of Python 2.
  • Python package installation manager: Setuptools or pip.

Manual Installation

To install the library and all of its dependencies, open a terminal and do one of the following:

  • Use the easy_install tool included in the setuptools package:
    $ easy_install --upgrade google-api-python-client
  • Use the pip tool:
    $ pip install --upgrade google-api-python-client

Depending on your system, you may need to prepend those commands with sudo.

App Engine

Because Google App Engine requires that all of the source files for a library must be present in your App Engine project, there is a special installation procedure for App Engine. To install the library and all of its dependencies in an App Engine project, download the file named google-api-python-client-gae-N.M.zip from the list of downloads, where N.M is the version number of the latest release. Unzip that file into your project. For example:

$ cd myproject
$ unzip google-api-python-client-gae-1.1.zip
