A new AdWords API JavaScript client library is now released and allows you to develop JavaScript applications and browser extensions that use the AdWords API. The client library is built using Google's Closure library, and is compatible with other major JavaScript libraries like jQuery, Dojo, etc.

Following are the main features of the API JS library:

  • Full support for AdWords API versions v201008 and v201101.
  • Code examples for all the common AdWords tasks, similar to other client libraries.
  • Tested to work in Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome. See the project wiki for details.
  • Includes minified JS scripts, compiled and optimized using the Closure compiler.
  • JSDoc documentation for the entire library.

Google also developed a Chrome extension that allows an AdWords user to browse his Campaigns, Ad Groups, Ads and Keyword statistics. The extension is available as a code example here. You can refer to this wiki article for details on its installation and use.
