Having the API names and the web names on here is so nice. I've been wishing for that for a long time!

I don't typically post personal things publicly to Google+, but this time I am for two reasons: advice and accountability.

I've never liked running. I've tried to like running, and I'm inspired by people who seem to truly enjoy it. It seems like such an ideal form of exercise, since you can do it inside or outside, at a gym or just around the neighborhood. But any time I've tried to get into it, I always end up stopping. I get bored and it feels like my body just doesn't want to be running. So, for the third (!) time, I started the couch to 5k program this week. This time, I'm going to stick with it and finish it and actually run a 5k after I complete it!

To make that happen, I decided I'm going to do some things differently. Instead of staring sadly at the timer on the treadmill (I run at the gym, because I'm not a fan of cold weather), I'm going to use Robert Ullrey's podcasts. This will hopefully keep me from getting so bored. I'm also going to try to go into it with a better attitude.

So, I'm posting here for the two reasons I mentioned at the beginning. By posting this here for you all to see, I'll be less likely to get lazy and give up. Also, I'm hoping that some of you have some advice for me. If you used to dislike running but found a way to enjoy it, what worked for you? I'd love to hear some tips!

Check out my latest blog post, about using open source JavaScript libraries in Apps Script. I specifically talk about my integration with the Underscore.js library, but I'd be interested to know what libraries you are using in your own projects.

On the Google Apps Developer blog today, we're highlighting some useful apps in the Chrome Web Store that were built using Apps Script.  #googleappsscript

Feed+ is a really nice web app that lets you create an RSS feed from public Google+ data (either a user's posts or from a search). It's nice to look at, easy to use, and it was built using Apps Script!
 
I just published a new Apps Script web app to the Chrome Web Store! This sample app allows you to create an RSS feed of Google+ activities, and utilizes the HtmlService, ScriptDb, and the ContentService. I'll be publishing a more in depth look at the code in the coming weeks, but for now install it, use it, and let me know what you think!

I can't wait to see what people do with this!
 
If you haven't heard yet, we just launched one of the most forward-looking developer products: the Google Drive Realtime API.  This API allows your application to build realtime collaboration on Google infrastructure with essentially no overhead.  This is huge.  The ability to add operational transforms into your application in a performant way with an established data model allows you to make game-changing updates to your app.  Don't think like a chat client, think like Google Docs: multiple cursors from multiple people in the same file at the same time editing the same words!

Check out the blog post below and our documentation for more, but if there's one thing you should be doing today it's checking out this API and building a test application.

I thought "Massively Collaborative Mathematics" was a great article related to the power of this concept: http://www.nytimes.com/projects/magazine/ideas/2009/#natural_science-7

Developers! Get your Chrome dev tools ready!
We have just launched JAM with Chrome — a new web app that lets you form your band online, in realtime, all using your favourite HTML5 features: Web Audio, WebSocket API, CSS3, SVG and Canvas.

Check out the first of our backstage articles on HTML5Rocks detailing how we used Web Audio in this project: http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/casestudies/jamwithchrome-audio/

I just published Super Simple Website Checker, which is a very simple web app for monitoring uptime/status of a list of websites.

I primarily created it as a sample app to demonstrate how you can use some features of Apps Script: HtmlService, ScriptDb, triggers, etc. but it can also be useful if you need to monitor some websites.

Every 15 minutes, it checks the status of the websites you're monitoring, and if any of them have a non-HTTP-200 response code, you'll get notified in an email.

There's a link to the source code in the details section of the Chrome Web Store listing.
