Editing Google Docs in Emacs
You will need to get emacspeak from Google Code svn, synced at least to r6636.
Sign in with M-x gdocs-sign-in. It will prompt you for your Google email and password, authenticate you, and cache your authentication token.
Here are the important functions:
Publishing a new document
- gdocs-publish-from-text Exports a buffer’s text to a new Google document.
- gdocs-publish-from-html Exports a buffer containing HTML to a new Google document.
- gdocs-publish-from-org Exports an org buffer as HTML to a new Google document.
Update an existing document: These functions prompt for which docid to update. The docid appears in the URL of the document. To save yourself entering the docid repeatedly, you can store it in a file variable called gdocs-docid.
Warning! These functions blindly update. If the document on the server has changes more recent than your buffer, they will be overwritten.
- gdocs-update-from-text Exports a buffer’s text to an existing Google document.
- gdocs-update-from-html Exports a buffer containing HTML to a new Google document.
Fetching an existing document: These also prompt for which docid to fetch. If you are in a buffer with a file variable called gdocs-docid defined, that will be used. The exported data goes into a buffer called *g scratch*.
- gdocs-fetch-document-text Exports an existing Google document to plain text.
- gdocs-fetch-document-html Exports an existing Google document to HTML.
