google-auth

Command line tool to retrieve oauth tokens for programmatic access to google services.

npm install -g google-auth

$ google-auth --id=<client_id> --secret=<client_secret> [services to auth with]

If you do not pass in the id and secret parameters, the app will look for the environmental variables GOOGLE_CLIENT_ID, GOOGLE_CLIENT_SECRET

For example, to authenticate with google drive and google calendar:

 
$ export GOOGLE_CLIENT_ID=<client_id>
$ export GOOGLE_CLIENT_SECRET=<client_secret>
$ google-auth drive calendar
 

this will open a web browser for you to confirm your authentication.
