Perl and Google Data API

dgaramond2 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi fellow monks,

Anyone here ever having to do stuffs with the Google Data API, e.g. accessing and manipulating Google Spreadsheets, using Perl? If yes, how do you go about it?

I've searched CPAN and the only thing that comes closest is Net::Google::GData, and at 0.01 I think that it doesn't do anything yet. Officially Google only supports PHP, Python, .NET, Java, Objective C, and Javascript. I'd prefer Perl though, would hate having to write it in PHP.

Actually, this is the first time ever I've experienced that CPAN doesn't have what I want yet other languages do. What a weird feeling :-) Proof that CPAN has been so good to me all these years.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Perhaps this might help but Net::Google::GData would be a more logical starting place. Why not just port the PHP/Java/Python (whatever you are most familar with) to Perl and upload it to CPAN.

    Net::Google::Spreadsheets from CPAN works for me.

    - even though this thread is a year old, I found it before I found Net::Google::Spreadsheets, so I'm commenting for the next person who stumbles here.

      ... and stumbling here years later still, I thank-you for forwarding me to Net::Google::Spreadsheets :)
