GoogleCL helps you to access the Google services from the Command line or the terminal. When you install GoogleCL, all the configuration files will be present in your home directory. Following are the configuration files present in your home directory. The name of the GoogleCL configuration directory is googlecl.
Let’s do a ls
$ ls ~/.googlecl email@example.com config history
Thus as you can see from the output, the three configuration files are
- Access Tokens: There will be multiple such files depending on with how many accounts you tried to access GoogleCL. The prefix of the files are access_tok_. It will be created as soon as you give permission to GoogleCL to access your account.
- History: It contains a list of all the commands you entered in the GoogleCL. Thus you can make use of the arrow keys to navigate through the history of previously entered commands
- Configuration files: It contains various configuration of GoogleCL. The default template is shown below
[CONTACTS] list_style = title,email [DOCS] spreadsheet_format = xls format = txt spreadsheet_editor = openoffice.org presentation_format = ppt presentation_editor = openoffice.org document_format = txt [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
