Blogger APIs client libraries

The Blogger APIs is built on HTTP and JSON, so any standard HTTP client can send requests to it and parse the responses.

However, instead of creating HTTP requests and parsing responses manually, you may want to use the Google APIs client libraries. The client libraries provide better language integration, improved security, and support for making calls that require user authorization.

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
