Google API Setup


The Google API provides support for sending Email through a Gmail account, using Google Sheets as a data back-end for storing records, including Google Docs in an HTML context, processing Google Doc content as Hashtag Markup, storing file uploads to Google Drive, and any other Google Cloud Service offering an API.  

Enabling Services

Services are enabled through the Google Cloud API Dashboard.

Creating Credentials

Credentials are created through the Google Cloud API Manager

Configuring Credentials

The Google API credentials are set in the Hashtag Framework config.    Set values for the keys: google_client_id and google_client_secret.    When the Hashtag Framework makes a first attempt to use the Google API, the request will be redirected to Google to complete the configuration.
