This is a small tool to log data to a Google Spreadsheet. Google Spreadsheets are very handy for manipulating data, but it's less easy to insert data programmatically. The tool depends on the the python gdata client package, which should be automatically installed as a reqirement when installing the logtogss from setup package.


To install, download the setup package and install using pip:

$ pip install logtogss-0.1.tar.gz

Alternatively, let pip download from pypi and install:

$ pip install logtogss

The basic Usage is like this:

$ logtogss --name "Spreadsheet Name" --sheet="Sheet Name" col1:val1 col2:val2

You can insert multiple rows at once by piping on stdin, whilst specifying just the column names, like this:

$ cat data

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 30)

Inconsistent literal block quoting.

val1 val2 val3 val4 $ logtogss --name 'Spreadsheet Name' --sheet="Sheet Name" col1 col2 < data

If you need to know what the valid column names are, leave off the data from the command line, like this:

$ logtogss --name "Spreadsheet Name" --sheet="Sheet Name"

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 37)

Inconsistent literal block quoting.

col1 col2

You can also use the --list option wth or with out the --name and --sheet options to see a list of the columns in the spreadsheet(s).

Note that logtogss uses OAuth, so the first time that you use it, you will be prompted with an URL to visit in order to allow logtogss access to your google docs.

Run logtogss with --help option to see the advanced options and their usage.
