Python Client for Google Cloud Storage
Google Cloud Storage is a managed service for storing unstructured data. Cloud Storage allows world-wide storage and retrieval of any amount of data at any time. You can use Cloud Storage for a range of scenarios including serving website content, storing data for archival and disaster recovery, or distributing large data objects to users via direct download.
A comprehensive list of changes in each version may be found in the CHANGELOG.
Read more about the client libraries for Cloud APIs, including the older Google APIs Client Libraries, in Client Libraries Explained.
In order to use this library, you first need to go through the following steps. A step-by-step guide may also be found in Get Started with Client Libraries.
Install this library in a virtual environment using venv. venv is a tool that creates isolated Python environments. These isolated environments can have separate versions of Python packages, which allows you to isolate one project’s dependencies from the dependencies of other projects.
With venv, it’s possible to install this library without needing system install permissions, and without clashing with the installed system dependencies.
