Google API Extensions for Python

Google API Extensions for Python (gax-python) is a set of modules which aids the development of APIs for clients and servers based on gRPC and Google API conventions.

Application code will rarely need to use most of the classes within this library directly, but code generated automatically from the API definition files in Google APIs can use services such as page streaming and request bundling to provide a more convenient and idiomatic API surface to callers.

Python Versions

gax-python is currently tested with Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5, and 3.6.


Contributions to this library are always welcome and highly encouraged.

See CONTRIBUTING.rst for more information on how to get started.


This library follows Semantic Versioning

It is currently in major version zero (0.y.z), which means that anything may change at any time and the public API should not be considered stable.


For detailed documentation of the modules in gax-python, please watch DOCUMENTATION.
