Google API C++ Client

This repository is deprecated as of May 30th 2019. Please do not use this for any new projects.

PLEASE READ: If you have a support contract with Google, and need help with this library - please create an issue in the support console.

The current installation has only been tested on Unix/Linux systems; this release does not support Windows.

Building

Prerequisites:

Build Steps:

./prepare_dependencies.py
mkdir build && cd build
../external_dependencies/install/bin/cmake ..
make

Running the Samples

See src/samples/README.md

Building Clients for Other APIs

To download additional APIs specialized for individual Google Services see: http://google.github.io/google-api-cpp-client/latest/available_service_apis.html and use this precise version of the apis client generator: https://github.com/google/apis-client-generator/tree/dcad06f5ff0fecfcf7a029efefe62a6b6287b025

Here's an example invocation:

$ python apis-client-generator/src/googleapis/codegen/generate_library.py --api_name=drive --api_version=v2 --language=cpp --output_dir=/tmp/generated

It should be possible to build this from existing installed libraries. However, the build scripts are not yet written to find them. For initial support simplicity we download and build all the dependencies in the prepare_dependencies.py script for the time being as a one-time brute force preparation.

About the branches

The master branch is where development is done. It usually is compatible with the generated libraries available from from google.developers.com. On occasion it gets aheaad of those. It usually catches up in a few days.

The latest generated libraries for any Google API is available automatically from https://developers.google.com/resources/api-libraries/download/<API>/<VERSION>/cpp

For example, for Drive/v2, you would use https://developers.google.com/resources/api-libraries/download/drive/v2/cpp

You can’t perform that action at this time.
