Jeffrey Posnick from the AdWords API Team announced at a Google Groups thread the AdWords API Local Database Sync Project. The details of this project are located over at code.google.com/p/awapi-local-db-sync/.

Here is the summary:

The AdWords API Local Database Sync project is designed to simplify the process of maintaining a local store of AdWords account data. The scripts that make up the project can be used to schedule reports using the AdWords API, store the results in a local database (using SQLite), and then run queries against the database to determine, for instance, what AdWords account data has recently been added or updated.

The scripts are written in Python, and make use of the SOAPpy libraries for accessing the AdWords API SOAP service. The Python code is written against the dbapi2 database API, and by default it will use the SQLite implementation and store the report data in a SQLite database file on the local file system. It is possible to swap out the SQLite libraries for another database library that supports the dbapi2 interface.

So, for you AdWords techies, you may really enjoy this.

Jeff explains that this script allows you to "schedule reports using the AdWords API, store the results in a local database utilitize (using SQLite), and then run queries against the database." Of course, some of you may have built this already using your own code base, but if you have not, you can now use this code base.

Forum discussion at Google Groups.

This post was written earlier in the week and scheduled to go live today.
