Using a Cloud Spanner Emulator
------------------------------

There are two ways to use the client with a Cloud Spanner emulator: programmatically or via an environment variable.

To programmatically use an emulator, you must specify the project, the endpoint of the emulator, and use anonymous credentials:

.. code:: python
from google.cloud import spanner
from google.auth.credentials import AnonymousCredentials
client = spanner.Client(
project='my-project',
client_options={"api_endpoint": "0.0.0.0:9010"},
credentials=AnonymousCredentials()
)
To use an emulator via an environment variable, set the `SPANNER_EMULATOR_HOST` environment variable to the emulator endpoint:

.. code::

export SPANNER_EMULATOR_HOST=0.0.0.0:9010
