You can know more about the files related to GoogleCL. The way you want GoogleCL to behave can be set in the file ~/googlecl/.config
A sample setting (default settings) is shown here
[CONTACTS] list_style = title,email user = email@example.com [DOCS] spreadsheet_format = xls format = txt spreadsheet_editor = openoffice.org presentation_format = ppt presentation_editor = openoffice.org document_format = txt user = firstname.lastname@example.org [CALENDAR] list_style = title,when [PICASA] access = public [GENERAL] regex = True date_print_format = %b %d %H:%M delete_by_default = False missing_field_value = N/A tags_prompt = False cap_results = False list_style = title,url-site delete_prompt = True url_style = site
GoogleCL provides access to various services from the command line.
Now take for example: Google Contacts, you can see the various contacts in the following format
list_style = title,email
That is, you will be able to see the contacts in the format: name followed by their email ID.
Let’s take a second example:
[PICASA] access = public
This means any upload made through GoogleCL to picassa will have public access. You can change it to private
[PICASA] access = private
Similarly you can choose the editor to open Google Docs files for presentation and spreadsheet. You can learn about the various settings for various services
