Type stubs for google-ads

Project description

Type stubs for the Google Ads API Client Library for Python

PyPI version

This package provides type stubs for the Google Ads API Client Library for Python. It's currently compatible with v16.0.0 of this library. It allows you to type check usage of the library with e.g. mypy and will also improve autocomplete in many editors.

This is in no way affiliated with Google.

Most stubs were created automatically by stubgen, the rest are handwritten or generated by self-made scripts.

If you find incorrect annotations, please create an issue. Contributions for fixes are also welcome.


$ pip install google-ads-stubs


There are some caveats. The primary one is that type inference does not work for the get_type and get_service methods of Client. The workaround is to explicitly state the type. For get_type you can also instantiate the object directly.

# Replace this:
campaign_operation = client.get_type('CampaignOperation')
# With this:
from import CampaignOperation
campaign_operation: CampaignOperation = client.get_type('CampaignOperation')
# Or this:
from import CampaignOperation
campaign_operation = CampaignOperation()

# Replace this:
google_ads_service = client.get_service('GoogleAdsService')
# With this:
from import GoogleAdsServiceClient
google_ads_service: GoogleAdsServiceClient = client.get_service('GoogleAdsService')

While it is technically possible to type these methods using a combination of overloading and literal types, this is not included in these stubs. The reason is that it requires about 10,000 overloads, which makes most typecheckers fairly slow.

Another big caveat since v8.0.0 of this package is that the attributes and constructor arguments of the protobuf messages are all typed as Any instead of their proper types. This is due to google-ads-python switching from raw protobuf message classes to proto-plus classes. Better types for these might be introduced in the future. GoogleAdsClient.enums is also typed as Any.

Note that if you're using Mypy you need to use the --namespace-packages option as google and are namespace packages.
