Google Ads Node.​js Client Library

This project hosts the Node.​js JavaScript client library for the various SOAP-based Ads APIs at Google. It is built for Node.​js starting from version v0.12.x upward and uses native Promises. The client library facilitates interacting with the following Google Ads APIs:

Features

  • Distributed via npm.
  • Powerful and customizable SOAP traffic logging via Winston.
  • Automatic handling of SOAP headers.
  • Easy management of OAuth 2.0 credentials, authentication, and session information.

Requirements

  • Node.​js v0.12.x and upward.
  • Access to the particular APIs by following the particular sign-up instructions (AdWords / DFP)

Installation

>$ npm install googleads-nodejs-lib --save

Getting Started

// Include the relevant parts of the library
var adWords = require('googleads-nodejs-lib').adWords;
 
// Initialize the CustomerService for customer 123-456-7890
adWords.CustomerService('123-456-7890').then(function(customerService) {
  // Get basic customer details
  return customerService.getCustomers();
}).then(function(result) {
  // Display the result
  console.log('Result', JSON.stringify(result, null, 2));
}).catch(function(err) {
  // Handle potential errors
  console.log(err);
});

Authentication

Upon the very first request, the library will prompt you to authenticate via a Web browser using OAuth 2.0 for Installed Applications. Copy and paste the obtained code from the browser window in the command line and all future requests will take care of authentication automagically. If you need to re-authenticate, simply delete the file .oauth that will be created after the first request.

Settings

You can tweak some settings by modifying settings.json as outlined in the comments below.
