A tool that instruments some of the Google services to the unix command line.



Following list is taken verbatim from the project page (http://code.google.com/p/googlecl/wiki/ExampleScripts). Idea is to grow this list as I find further tricks with this toolkit. Here it goes::

  • Blogger:
    • google blogger post –tags “GoogleCL, awesome” –title “Test Post” “I’m posting from the command line”
    • google blogger post blogpost.txt
    • google blogger list title,url-site # List posts
    • google blogger delete –title “Test Post”
    • google delete –title “Silly post number [0-9]*” # Delete posts matching regex
    • google tag –title “Dev post” –tags “Python, software” # label an existing post
  • Calendar:
    • google calendar add “Dinner party with George today at 6pm” # add event to calendar
    • google calendar today # List events for today only.
    • google calendar list –date 2010-06-01,2010-06-30 # List events.
    • google calendar delete –title “Dinner party with George” # Delete an event.
    • google calendar today list –cal .* | egrep ‘\[.*\]’ # List all calendars
  • Contacts:
    • google contacts add “J. Random Hacker, jrandom@example.com”
    • google contacts list name,email –title “J. Random Hacker”
    • google contacts delete –title “J. Random Hacker”
  • Docs:
    • google docs delete –title “Evidence”
    • google docs list title,url-direct –delimiter “: ” # list docs
    • google docs upload the_bobs.csv ~/work/docs_to_share/*

    gdata-python-client >= 1.3.0 ONLY:

    • google docs edit –title “Shopping list” –editor vim
    • google docs get –title “Homework [0-9]*”
  • Picasa:
    • google picasa create –title “Vermont Test” –tags Vermont vermont.jpg
    • google picasa get –title “Vermont Test” /path/to/download/folder
    • google picasa list title,url-direct –query “A tag”
    • google picasa post –title “Vermont Test” ~/old_photos/*.jpg # Add to an album
    • google picasa tag –title “Vermont Test” –tags “places”
    • google picasa delete –title “Vermont Test” # delete entire album
  • Youtube:
    • google youtube post –category Education –devtags GoogleCL killer_robots.avi
    • google youtube delete –title “killer_robots.avi”
    • google youtube list # list my videos
    • google youtube tag -n “.*robot.*” –tags robot
