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

Manual installation

Download arrow Download the latest client library for Python, unpack the code, and run python setup.py install

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-1.2.zip
