Google Spreadsheet Data

A node.js script to import data from Google Drive. Useful to use Google Spreadsheet data in static websites.

This script is based on the tutorial of Sprint Works, but was rewrited in simple and basic Vanilla JS.

This script connects to your spreadsheet, gets data and saves them in a yaml file to use with Jekyll.

Of course, you can edit the script to save the data in another format (json, xml...).
