Google Drive and the Google Drive SDK
There are numerous advantages of using a user-managed cloud-storage such as Google Drive in web applications. We will see how a web application can be deeply integrated with Google Drive using the Google Drive SDK to take advantage of its free storage and to leverage the millions of files already hosted on user’s Drive. First we’ll see how you can register, setup and distribute your Drive application. Then, we’ll have a deep look into the authentication and authorization flows based on OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect that Drive is using and how Drive Files are created and read using Drive’s REST APIs.
