GAV4 - Analytics Reporting API V4 Compatibility Library Analytics

A library for converting Google Analytics Core Reporting API V3 requests to Analytics Reporting API V4 requests.


$ pip install --upgrade gav4

Typical usage example

There are two methods of using the gav4 library. You can apply the library to an authorized analyticsreporting Service object, which exposes a get method that operates much like the current Core Reporting API V3.

import gav4

# Apply the gav4 get method to the analyticsreporting service object.

# Call the gav4_get method with a V3 request and get a V3 response.
v3_response = analyticsreporting.gav4_get(v3_request).execute()

Alternatively, you can convert the requests and responses directly.

# Convert a V3 request into a V4 request.
v4_request = gav4.convert_request(v3_request)

# Call the V4 API.
v4_response = analyticsreporting.reports().batchGet(body=v4_request).execute()

# Convert the V4 API response into a V3 response.
v3_response = gav4.convert_report(v4_response.get('reports', [])[0])


Run the tests with the following command:

python tests

This may require you to install the nose library -- pip install nose.
