GoogleSimpleClient

Simplifies the usage of google-api-client and provides a command line tool for finding and getting documents from Google Drive.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'google-simple-client'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install google-simple-client

Register an App with Google Drive

Enable Google drive. Make sure that you enable both the Drive API and the Drive SDK. Make sure you use Client ID for installed applications.

Usage API

session = GoogleSimpleClient::Session.new({
      client_id: 'cid',
      client_secret: 'secret',
      email: 'email',
      password: 'password',
      verbose: true
    })
session.authenticate
pdf = session.get 'title', 'pdf'

Supported formats are (at least): 'pdf', 'html', 'csv', 'txt' etc.

Usage CLI

$ google-simple-client [options] title

Options are ...
    -f, --format FORMAT              Format of the file to get
    -v, --verbose                    Log to standard output.
    -V, --version                    Display the program version.
    -h, --help                       Display this help message.P

Configuration

It is also possible to set the options to Session.new in a configuration file called ~/.google-simple-client or $HOME/.google-simple-client. The format of the file is YAML. Example:

#.google-simple-client

client_id: cid
client_secret: secret
email: email
password: password

Command line parameters and code parameters override the configuration file options as expected.
