I'm working on a command line client for Google Drive with git-like interfaces, written in Go. Pull, push and publish files. It works on Mac OSX and Linux for now, and soon to support Windows. If you need a backup solution or require CLI to talk to Google Drive, give it a try.

There is a sneak peak why I'm not implementing a sync daemon instead of this client on

+Paul Kinlan interviewed me. I essentially made a joke about his fame the first second we met. Through the interview I shitted my pants and not performed better than an high school kid.

Shortcut files? I've been asked about them very frequently. On Google Drive, you can create shortcut files that act like soft links but redirects your users to a Web page instead of another folder/file. Shortcuts power you to launch any URL directly from Google Drive frontend!

To illustrate how they work, I decided to launch a bookmarking service that saves your reading list to your Drive. Firstly, point your browsers to to add our bookmarklet. Then, feel free to fork the Github repo to launch your Pocket competitor for free ;-)

+Enrique Umaran, No, it's not officially maintained by Google as a service. Altough you can maintain your own instance with the code we open sourced for no cost on App Engine.

In case you missed +Ali Afshar's I/O talk and interested in Android, we released an application preferences syncer for Android SDK. Keep  the preferences of your users on Google Drive's appdata, sync across multiple devices and platforms.

Now it's your turn to use, fork and contribute!
