Copy data from terminal to file on google docs

Post by altsfx » Tue Feb 19, 2019 3:13 am

I would like to write data sent by the ESP8266 into a file on the cloud via the WiFi connection. The Google sheets API looks promising with Python, but I do not see how this would work with microPython.

Possible helpful modules,
google-api-python-client 1.7.8
oauth2client – to authorize with the Google Drive API using OAuth 2.0
gspread – to interact with Google Spreadsheets

Is there a simple and clever way to get this done on microPython?

Hi

I am not sure if this would be possible directly, anyway I was able to send data from the esp to google spreadsheets, blogger and other services. There is a site named IFTTT. You create an account there and create the task you need. Go there and look at some examples and I think you will understand how it works, good luck!
