Google Cloud Python Client

Python idiomatic clients for Google Cloud Platform services.

Stability levels

The development status classifier on PyPI indicates the current stability of a package.

General Availability

GA (general availability) indicates that the client library for a particular service is stable, and that the code surface will not change in backwards-incompatible ways unless either absolutely necessary (e.g. because of critical security issues) or with an extensive deprecation period. Issues and requests against GA libraries are addressed with the highest priority.

GA libraries have development status classifier Development Status :: 5 - Production/Stable.


Sub-components of GA libraries explicitly marked as beta in the import path (e.g. should be considered to be beta.

Beta Support

Beta indicates that the client library for a particular service is mostly stable and is being prepared for release. Issues and requests against beta libraries are addressed with a higher priority.

Beta libraries have development status classifier Development Status :: 4 - Beta.

Alpha Support

Alpha indicates that the client library for a particular service is still a work-in-progress and is more likely to get backwards-incompatible updates. See `versioning`_ for more details.

Alpha libraries have development status classifier Development Status :: 3 - Alpha.
