I've updated the G+ export tool to also export images linked to posts.

If you already used the export tool before, simply do step 2 & 3 of the tutorial again (no need to create a new Firebase project, you can use the one you created before but you will need to export again all posts to get images).

Images will be stored on the Firebase Storage linked to your Firebase project. You don't need to do any additional setup and Firebase offers 5GB of storage for free.

I've written a new article related to the export of Google+ data to Firebase, explaining how I implemented a full-text search on Firebase data thanks to Firebase Functions and how we can use Glitch to deploy Functions without having to install anything on a computer!

It's now possible to perform full-text search on your G+ export!

Here's a live example:

With the deprecation of the public version of G+, this community needs a new home. I don't know yet what it will be but you can leave your email address in the attached form and I will notify you once a new home has been found.

This is mostly to make sure people get the info even if they don't visit this community frequently.

You can also find here an archive of the current content of the community:
https://apps-script-community-archive.firebaseapp.com/
This archive will be improved, at least with more search features / full text search.

I've updated the G+ Exporter tool with the ability to sort by total number of plusoners, resharers and comments so you can now see what were the most popular posts in your extract.

Here's a live example with my profile:

And the tutorial if you want to make your own export of G+ content:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UGhxaN5AiRXXL0Ki0DlVWLYJo_YYiEYhM2w1caRhljU/edit

Happy end of year!

I've updated the G+ migration tool to let people add and remove +1s on posts.
Here's a live example:
https://apps-script-community-archive.firebaseapp.com/

You need to sign-in first, to link the +1 to your Google account when recorded in the database.
This is just an example to show that this kind of G+ data export could be used as a real, live copy of G+ and not just a "read-only" archive.
