    	"client_secret":"foobar",
       	"client_id":"foobar.apps.googleusercontent.com"              
    }
    

    Start application

    To grant the application access to the Google Calendar, open the adress displayed by the application with a browser of your choice while logged in to a Google account and enter the displayed code. The application will periodically check if you already entered the code after which it will begin to check the calendar automatically.

    When running topic:payload tuples can be scheduled to be published at the start and end of an calendar event. A description of the following format can be added to events in the specified calendar.

    "start":{"/topic":"payload", "/foo/bar":1},"end":{"/foo/bar/":0}
