Read and write to files in Google Drive

Overview

Problem


Many organizations now use Google Drive as their primary file storage system. It’s collaborative and user-friendly. However, one drawback for IT staff and developers is that buiding apps that read and write to files on Google Drive is not as easy as handling file access on a server. As a result, it can be time-consuming to add features that involve accessing files on Google Drive.

How Flex.io Helps


With Flex.io, you can quickly build serverless functions that read and write to files in Google Drive. Flex.io handles the OAuth refresh tokens and provides other pre-packaged functions that save development time and cost.
