GoogleCL: a New Toy for Advanced Users From Google

By Jim Roberts | Google

Technology is everywhere. And it makes our life — kind-of, easier. The enhancement goes greater by the day with the technology we are surrounded by.

The internet tech lets you keep in touch with the loved ones through email, post our videos of graduations, weddings, and other events for other family members to see, and allows us to share our lives with the whole world.

As a programmer, I am in awe of how fast technology moves. It advances so rapidly that the program I might be using to code right now would already be labeled as outdated at the end of the week. To prevent this from happening, I have to make sure that I’m always on top of the latest trends and releases. After all, if I’m not updated with what are the most efficient programs in the market, then I could very well lose my job.

For this same reason, I downloaded the Google Command Line (GoogleCL) to hone my skills in programming. Google is the biggest and most prominent search engine in the world, and to be able to try out their program is something every decent programmer would dream about.


Google’s GoogleCL?

Google announced that GoogleCL will enable me to access Google’s contacts, Blogger, Calendar, Documents, Picasa, and YouTube services instantly. The interesting thing about it is that the tool enables me to change whatever I want from the services using the command prompt.

Using my Windows computer, I was able to upload video directly on YouTube and edit my documents on Google Docs. And that’s pretty cool!

With the command prompt to harness the full potential of Google’s online services is something every advanced user would appreciate. With the usual setting of GUIs, services are slower and more prone to lags. I discovered that GoogleCL lets me upload whole folders of images to Picasa, update my blog in the Blogger, and change and edit my appointments and documents through Google Docs and Calendar.

Of course this advancement is not surprising, considering that it is a Python application. Now one thing in the world of software development would remain constant: how Google changes the way the world connects.
