Google Ads Python Client Library
Notice: This library is now sunset
As of 1/5/15, this library is sunset and will no longer receive updates for new versions of supported APIs or bug fixes. Once all supported APIs are no longer compatible with this library, it will be removed from GitHub and PyPI.
A newer library named googleads is available that supports Python 2.7 and Python 3.3+. You can read more about it here:

You can find more information about the Google Ads Python Client Libraries here.
You have two options for installing the Ads Python Client Libraries:
Install with a tool such as pip:
$ sudo pip install adspygoogle $ --allow-external PyXML $ --allow-unverified PyXML $ --allow-external ElementTree $ --allow-unverified ElementTree $ --allow-external cElementTree $ --allow-unverified cElementTree
Install manually after downloading and extracting the tarball:
$ sudo python setup.py install
Examples and Configuration Scripts
This package only provides the core components necessary to use the client libraries. If you would like to obtain example code for any of the included client libraries, you can find it on our downloads page.
Due to changes to PyPI’s installation process, using ‘pip install’ to install the library currently requires a number of ‘allow-external’ and ‘allow-unverified’ flags for the external dependencies of PyXML, ElementTree, and cElementTree. If you’re using a version of Python greater than 2.5 and would prefer not to install PyXML or cElementTree from external sources, then follow the steps below to install via the tarball without those dependencies (cElementTree is installed already as a default library in > Python 2.5). Alternatively, if you would prefer to download these libraries to install yourself, they can be downloaded at these locations:
The installation of PyXML and cElementTree will fail on Ubuntu 13.04. If you are trying to install adspygoogle on Ubuntu 13.04, you should avoid installing these dependencies. If you need to use either of these dependencies, there is a work-around that can be found in this bug. Another alternative is to install manually and exclude these dependencies. To do so, first download and extract the tarball below. In the root directory, run the following command:
$ sudo python setup.py install --no_PyXML --no_cElementTree
