Google Docs Repository Plugin

When I last updated on the status of the Google Docs Repository/Portfolio plugins for Moodle 2.0, I mentioned that it wasn’t possible to download documents from Google and this meant it wasn’t really possible to make a repository plugin.

A few weeks ago Google updated their API to allow for applications to download documents, so today I found some time to update and commit the plugin into Moodle 2.0 :).

At the moment it’s not possible for users to choose which format to export their document as, but the Google API allows exports in in a variety of formats. I’m hoping to work with Dongsheng to work out how we can let users choose which format they wish to export their document in on a per-file or per-user basis. The plugin also needs folder support adding.

As always, please test and file bugs in the tracker. :) Google docs screenshot
