Project description


About GoogleSharing

GS manages the sharing of documents stored in the Google servers and their synchronization from the Plone application to Google Docs service. In this way, when a Plone user changes the roles of other users on a specific document, for instance to share the document with them or to restrict their access to the document, GS changes the document sharing attributes in the Google Docs service accordingly. So, if a Plone user assigns another user the Editor role on one of his documents, the other user will be able to read and modify that document through his Google account.

To associate Plone and Google accounts, GS assumes that the email address attribute of Plone users corresponds to their Google account.

The mapping of roles, on each specific document, from Plone to Google Docs is based on the following rules: Plone users who have both the Editor and the Reader roles on a specific document are assigned the writer role on the correspondent document on Google servers; Plone users who have the Editor or the Reader roles are assigned the writer or reader role, respectively, on the correspondent document on Google servers. The Collaborator and Reviewer roles have not been considered.


FileSystemStorage, GoogleAuthentication, GoogleSystemStorage and gdata-1.3.0 must be correctly installed.
