Uploading files to GOOGLE drive without a human interaction using python

  • As Claudio (GOOGLE) mentioned in http://youtu.be/zJVCKvXtHtE?t=12m18s, we need to use some logic (client library) to sort your crendentials for reusing. Other wise on every execution of quickstart.py script, you need human interaction for getting tokens.
  • I added 6 lines to google's quickstart.py to keep authorization code for reusing. So as long as the user has not revoked the access granted initially to the application, we don't need a human interaction. (https://developers.google.com/accounts/docs/OAuth2InstalledApp#refresh)
  • For those who don't know what is this quickstart.py: This script is a demo script made by GOOGLE for helping developers to get familiar with Google Drive SDK. More info available in https://developers.google.com/drive/quickstart-python
  • What google's quickstart.py is doing: It is just uploading a filed named document.txt to google drive.
  • Before running (need only on first execution) this script, you need to setup a webserver running in local machine or just change the REDIRECT_URI to urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob. Refer google's documentation for more details. I setup a instant webserver using following. (This will setup a webserver on port 8000)

    python -m SimpleHTTPServer
