NAME

Google::Client::Collection - Collection of modules to talk with Googles REST API

SYNOPSIS

    use Google::Client::Collection;

    my $google = Google::Client::Collection->new(
        cache => CHI::Driver->new(), # ... or anything with a 'get($cache_key)' method
    );

    # then before calling a google clients method, set the key to fetch the access_token from in the cache:
    $google->set_cache_key('user-10-access-token');

    # eg: use a Google::Client::Files client:
    my $json = $google->files->list(); # lists all files available by calling: GET https://www.googleapis.com/drive/v3/files

DESCRIPTION

A compilation of Google::Client::* clients used to connect to the many resources of Googles REST API. All such clients can be found in CPAN under the 'Google::Client' namespace (eg Google::Client::Files). Each client uses the same constructor arguments, so they can be used separately if desired.

You should only ever have to instantiate Google::Client::Collection, which will give you access to all the available REST clients (pull requests welcome to add more!).

Requests to Googles API require authentication, which can be handled via Google::OAuth2::Client::Simple.

Also, make sure you request the right scopes from the user during authentication before using a client, as you will get unauthorized errors from Google (intended behaviour).

CONSTRUCTOR ARGS

cache

Required constructor argument. The cache can be any object that provides a get($cache_key) method to retrieve the access token. It'll be responsible for eventually expiring the access token so it's known when to request a new one.

METHODS

cache_key

The key to lookup the access token in the cache. Should be set before calling any method in a Google Client. It's a good idea to make this unique (per user maybe?).

files

A Google::Client::Files client.

TODO

  • Catch known Google API errors instead of giving that responsibility to the user of module

  • Add more clients
