This is a sample app showing the potential of Apps Script to create complete (server/client) web apps. This sample app is a Request Management App, where the users can submit their purchase requests. The requests are saved to a Google Sheet 'Back End'. The requests can be 'approved' or 'declined'.

The front-end (client side) uses VueJS and Bootstrap. The back-end uses ES6 Javascript that gets compiled and bundled to Apps Script compatible code using webpack.

This project is intended only as a proof-of-concept and there is no performance optimization. The app will be slow because of the inefficiencies.


Install clasp command line tool (if you don't have it already)

npm install @google/clasp -g

Then login to your Google account:

clasp login

Open the terminal and clone this project.

You have to create an Apps Script project to run this code.

clasp create --type standalone --title "Apps Script Request Management App Sample"

Now build the project and upload to your newly created Apps Script project

npm install
npm run deploy

Local development

You don't have to upload the project everytime to see the changes. run:

npm run local

This will open a http://localhost:9090/ where you can view your development site.

In order to Mock the responses from your Google Apps Script API, update client/src/services/MockBackEnd.js

Project Structure

The client/src/pages contains the partial pages. See src/pages/routes.js where the routes are configured. You can customize the global styles in src/pages/scss. This project uses bootstrap as CSS framework.

The server/src folder contains the server side (Apps Script) code. You can use ES6 or npm modules in lib.js and any classes/files included in lib.js. api.js exposes the Apps Script API that the client side calls (see client/src/services/GASBackEnd.js)

How does it work?

In the front end, it uses webpack and babel to cross compile and generate the bundle. Then it uses html-webpack-inline-source-plugin to inline the whole Javascript and CSS in to the generated index.html file. You can see the client side setup in the client/

Building the project

npm run build

will build the local development version. The output files are placed in deploy/local folder.

npm run prod

will build the 'production' version that is ready to be uploaded to Apps Script.

Unit Tests

The server/tests folder contains the unit tests for the server side. Run

npm run test

to run the unit tests
