gupload - Google Drive CLI Uploader
Our motivation to create the gupload tool was the deployment of the GitLab CI artifacts to our Google Drive disk. The tool is not limited to this use-case though. It is a simple Python 3 command-line utility ingesting file names and their respective path arguments. Those are uploaded to Google Drive via Google service account (recommended approach by Google) and an optionally specified folder (through its ID).
The secret file is accessed via the environmental variable
GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS and it should be set prior the program execution:
$ export GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS=/path/to/credentials.json
- Python 3 + PIP
- Enabled Google Drive API (you can do it in the Google Cloud Console)
- Google service account (you can do it in the Google Cloud Console)
- Credential JSON file to the service account
- Configured environmental variable
GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALSto the service account credentials
Install/upgrade the tool from PyPI using:
$ pip3 install --upgrade gupload
