entity['name'] = 'Your name'
entity['age'] = 25
client.put(entity)

$ pip install google-cloud-storage

Example#

from google.cloud import storage

client = storage.Client()
bucket = client.get_bucket('<your-bucket-name>')
blob = bucket.blob('my-test-file.txt')
blob.upload_from_string('this is test content!')
