New Documents List API

Google Data API posts now you can import your spreadsheets and word processor documents into Google Documents using the new Documents List API. Until I write up a tutorial, check out the Documents List API

Quick Docs Api Example (python)

To use the gdata docs python client you need to upgrade to 1.0.7 or higher. First thing is to import the modules you'll need. Then, set up the usual authentication parameters for the client. The most basic query will just return all of your documents However, if we want to display just the spreadsheets, we build the query like this: Finally, we output the titles If we wanted to, we could also import the DateTime library and show when the document was last updated For me this outputs:

C'mon Google! Get in Gear!!

As of this morning (or at least sometime before lunch), Zoho Writer turned on offline mode with Google Gears.

This has now been made possible, thanks API team! Original ticket: It would be ideal if we could pull back a list of documents from a certain folder. This would give more functionality and make the size of the data smaller if you only…

October Speedlinking

I haven't been able to post as often or as in depth as I'd like to have this past month. I chalk it up mostly to work, we all love 12 hour days right? But now that sign-off has passed and our last release of 2007 is calmly approaching (its on Friday), things have settled down a bit. Below are some great links from October, most of which I wanted to mention at some point and haven't gotten a chance to until now. Enjoy. The JavaScript Library for Google Calendar was released. This allows for authenticated…
