GCS – Read text files directly from Google Cloud Storage into python

I feel a bit stupid right now. I’ve been reading tons of documentation and stackoverflow questions, but I can’t get it right.

I have a file on Google Cloud Storage. It is in a bucket ‘test_bucket’. In this bucket there is a folder ‘temp_files_folder’ which contains two files, one named ‘test.txt’ .txt file and a .csv file called ‘test.csv’. Both files are just because I tried using both files but the result is the same.

The contents of the file are


I want to read it into python, just like I use locally

textfile = open("/file_path/test.txt", 'r')
 times = textfile.read().splitlines()

This makes

['hej', 'san']

I tried using

from google.cloud import storage

 client = storage.Client()

 bucket = client.get_bucket('test_bucket')

 blob = bucket.get_blob('temp_files_folder/test.txt')


But it gives the output

<bound method Blob.download_as_string of >

How to get the actual string in the file?

1> Daniel Rosem..:

download_as_string is a method, you need to call it.


More likely, you want to assign it to a variable so that you download it once and can then print it and do whatever else you want with it:

downloaded_blob = blob.download_as_string()
