October-fied implementation of the Google Drive Flysystem Driver.
Google Drive is an ID-based filesystem; it supports having multiple files with the same name within a given directory. This driver exposes the file and directory IDs when requesting filenames which means if you hooked it up the the Media manager to view your files you would see something like the picture below:
To install from the Marketplace, click on the "Add to Project" button and then select the project you wish to add it to before updating the project to pull in the plugin.
To install from the backend, go to Settings -> Updates & Plugins -> Install Plugins and then search for
To install from the repository, clone it into plugins/luketowers/gdrivefilesystemdriver and then run
composer update from your project root in order to pull in the dependencies.
To install it with Composer, run
composer require luketowers/oc-gdrivefilesystemdriver-plugin from your project root.
For usage examples of interacting with this driver see the usage examples here: ivanvermeyen/laravel-google-drive-demo#available-routes
Example Storage disk configuration using the
googledrive storage driver provided by this plugin:
'mygoogledrive' => [ 'driver' => 'googledrive', 'clientId' => '', 'clientSecret' => '', 'refreshToken' => '', // Null for the route folder, otherwise a folder ID to base the driver off of 'folderId' => null, ],
See the Configuration Guides at the bottom for how to get the values for
Getting your Client ID and Secret
Log in to your Google Account and go to this website:
Create a Project
Create a new project using the dropdown at the top.
After you enter a name, it takes a few seconds before the project is successfully created on the server.
Enable Drive API
Make sure you have the project selected at the top.
Then go to Library and click on "Drive API" under "G Suite APIs".
And then Enable it.
Go to "Credentials" and click on the tab "OAuth Consent Screen". Fill in a "Product name shown to users" and Save it. Don't worry about the other fields.
Then go back to Credentials, click the button that says "Create Credentials" and select "OAuth Client ID".
Choose "Web Application" and give it a name.
Add https://developers.google.com/oauthplayground in "Authorized redirect URIs". You will need to use this in the next step to get your refresh token. Once you have the token, you can remove the URI.
Click Create and take note of your Client ID and Client Secret.
Getting your Refresh Token
Make sure you added this URL to your Authorized redirect URIs in the first step.
In the top right corner, click the settings icon, check "Use your own OAuth credentials" and paste your Client ID and Client Secret.
In step 1 on the left, scroll to "Drive API v3", expand it and check the first drive scope.
Click "Authorize APIs" and allow access to your account when prompted. There will be a few warning prompts, just proceed.
When you get to step 2, check "Auto-refresh the token before it expires" and click "Exchange authorization code for tokens".
When you get to step 3, click on step 2 again and you should see your refresh token.
Getting your Root Folder ID
If you want to store files in your Google Drive root directory, then the folder ID can be
null. Else go into your Drive and create a folder.
Because Google Drive allows duplicate names, it identifies each file and folder with a unique ID. If you open your folder, you will see the Folder ID in the URL.
