googledrive: An Interface to Google Drive
googledrive allows you to interact with files on Google Drive from R.
googledrive::drive_find(n_max = 50) lists up to 50 of the files you see
in My Drive. You can expect to be sent to your
browser here, to authenticate yourself and authorize the googledrive
package to deal on your behalf with Google Drive.
Most functions begin with the prefix
The goal is to allow Drive access that feels similar to Unix file system
The metadata for one or more Drive files is held in a
dribble, a "Drive
tibble". This is a data frame with one row per file. A dribble is returned
(and accepted) by almost every function in googledrive. It is designed to
give people what they want (file name), track what the API wants (file id),
and to hold the metadata needed for general file operations.
googledrive is "pipe-friendly" and, in fact, re-exports
%>%, but does not
require its use.
