OAuth and google Calendar

Post by mimu » Tue Nov 27, 2018 10:46 pm

I've prepared a small demo stack to read and write to the google calendar api.

Everything else then complete, but for me it works.
(much room for improvements)

The stack uses the OAuth2 Library and the livecode calendar widget to select a date.
The calendar widget can be found here:

Most of the code is in the card script. You have to put in your Google Client-ID and Clientkey
you can get it under https://console.developers.google.com/apis/
Create oAuthClientId
of type "Sonstige"

I would be interested if it works for other livecoders,
any feedback is welcome

Very well done. :D
I have tested this GoogleCalendarTest shortly (more extensively later) and it works "out of the box". The problem will be for developers to start getting accustomed to the Google Developer API creating a project, assigning the scope (here Calendar scopes) , receiving the client id and client secret and entering that into this application.
