Google Drive Realtime API Playground
Google Drive Realtime API Playground, is a web app that helps you to try out the features of the Google Drive Realtime API.
The Playground will take you through the steps required to have the Realtime API working on your application and can be used as a reference implementation of a Google Drive Realtime API application.
You can try out the Google Drive Realtime API Playground on its live instance.
Installation and Configuration
The project can run on any static web server, but we also provide required configuration and boilerplate files to host it on App Engine.
If you wish to host it in your own App Engine instance make sure you set the name of your App Engine application in
/app.yaml. To create an App Engine instance follow the instructions on appengine.google.com.
Create a Google APIs project and Activate the Drive API
First, you need to activate the Drive API for your app. You can do it by configuring your API project in the Google APIs Console.
- Create an API project in the Google APIs Console.
- Select the "Services" tab and enable the Drive API.
- Select the "API Access" tab in your API project, and click "Create an OAuth 2.0 client ID".
- In the Branding Information section, provide a name for your application (e.g. "CollabCube 3D"), and click Next. Providing a product logo is optional.
- In the Client ID Settings section, do the following:
- Select Web application for the Application type
- Click the more options link next to the heading, Your site or hostname.
- Click Create Client ID.
- In the API Access page, locate the section Client ID for Web applications and note the Client ID value.
- Go to the Drive SDK page and copy the App ID.
Setup your App information in the code
You should now have your Client ID and your App ID. In
/js/rtpg.js change the
APP_ID and the
CLIENT_ID constants at the top of the file.
Deploy, run that's it!
