Project description

google_api_v3_helper- Automate your google drive process easily

Detailed usage documentation is still in progress The objective of this package is to help python developper to use some of the Google Drive API v3 easily. As of now, 5 functions are available. This package is embedding very nicely with Google API libraries.

This is how you can install it on your machine:

pip install google_api_v3_helper

All of the functionnalities of google_api_helper require you to build the the service class using google ServiceAccountCredentials. For instance, you can use the ServiceAccountCredentials from json keyfile name as such:

from googleapiclient.discovery import build
from oauth2client.service_account import ServiceAccountCredentials

def get_service():
    scopes = ['https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive'
              , 'https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.file']
    
    key_file_location = 'pathtokeyfile.json'

    creds = ServiceAccountCredentials.from_json_keyfile_name(key_file_location, scopes=scopes)

    service = build('drive', 'v3', credentials=creds)
    print('connection OK')
    return service

service = get_service()

Once set, you can use our library and get, for instance, the folder tree of a specific file as such:

from google_api_v3_helper import find_google_fileid_tree
fileId = 'XXXXXXXXXXX' #id of the file you wish to get the folder tree for.
tree = find_google_fileid_tree(service, fileId)
