the Google Command Line Tool

Filed under: code,PythonApps — JeffH @ 12:30 am

Google just announced, GoogleCL a command-line utility that provides access to various Google services. GoogleCL is a pure Python application that uses the Python gdata libraries to make Google Data API calls from the command line.  It streamlines tasks such as posting to a Blogger blog, adding events to Calendar, or editing documents on Google Docs.

For example:

$ google blogger post --blog "My blog" --tags "python, googlecl, development" my_post.html
$ google calendar add "Lunch with Jason tomorrow at noon"
$ google docs edit --title "Shopping list" --editor vim

Read more at the GoogleCL project page, or jump right to the examples.

I think this is cool, because I just started reading up on the gdata-python-services to interactively retrieve information from a google docs spreadsheet.
