Google shows its love for linux by unveiling a commandLine tool that would enable Linux users to have Cloud Computing on fingertips. The new Tool, GoogleCL enables access to all Google Services: Picasa, Youtube, Blogger etc right from the terminal (commandLine).
Uploading photos to Picasa is now as easy as the command below:
$ google picasa create --title "My New album" ~/Photos/*.jpg
GoogleCL utility works across various Google services. It streamlines tasks such as posting to a Blogger blog, adding events to Calendar, or editing documents on Google Docs.
$ google blogger post --blog "My blog" --tags "python, googlecl, development" my_post.html
$ google calendar add “Dinner party with George today at 6pm” # add event to calendar
$ google docs delete --title "Evidence"
$ google youtube post --category Education --devtags GoogleCL killer_robots.avi
$ google docs edit --title "Shopping list" --editor vim

GoogleCL is a pure Python application that uses GData nder the hood to support all Google services seamlessly.
So what’s wickedest things you can do with this? Perhaps, anything, now create CRON jobs for scheduling blog posts, removing information, upload locally recorded videos automatically at periodic times, OR you can automate a number of tasks on Google accounts through scripts, templates, Really, sky is the limit.
