Posted by Dan McGrath, Product Manager, Google Drive

Beginning August 31st, 2015, web hosting in Google Drive for users and developers will be deprecated. You can continue to use this feature for a period of one year until August 31st, 2016, when we will discontinue serving content via googledrive.com/host/[doc id].

In the time since we launched web hosting in Drive, a wide variety of public web content hosting services have emerged. After careful consideration, we have decided to discontinue this feature and focus on our core user experience.

For those who have used Drive to host websites, Google Domains can refer you to third parties for website hosting functionality.

For those who use this feature to serve non-user content to web and mobile applications, Google Cloud Platform offers a better-performing solution.

In my opinion, the reason given for discontinuing web hosting in Google Drive is so pathetically lame.  I use it, but I had to go hunting for it.  Maybe I'm just stupid, but it seemed like a feature that was hard to find, and figure out how to use.  To me, it does make sense to deprecate it though.  It was going nowhere.

You have one year to resolve [If it applies to you]  :(

I am still in the middle of updating all my GVIZ/TQ calls to cope with the annoying date change they made.

It has cost me one full day so far.

+Lenny Cunningham alerted me to this parse.com announcement , where they are saying there may be some rest api problems with some changes they plan to make.. 

I just tried their test and it looks like apps script will be fine..

Logger.log(UrlFetchApp.fetch('https://sha2-test.parse.com').getContentText());

So good news for those of you using any of my parse.com libraries.

Probably not so good news for my VBA /Parse.com implementations though... sigh.. so I guess I'll be back on Windows tomorrow..

parse blog post is here...

Cordial Saludo,

Bueno, mi problema o pregunta es para una solución que estoy buscando, pero, a un no la encuentro y radica en lo siguiente:

Tengo un complemento para una hoja de calculo, donde tengo una barra lateral, para que se pueda acceder desde tu cuenta de Google+ que tienes iniciada en tu Drive, pero me esta resultando imposible llegar a la solución por este pequeño error que me sale cuando esta tratando de autorizar el inicio, pero para creo que no es necesario ya que ya estoy en mi cuenta o no se si es requerido, pero aquí adjunto la imagen para que se den una idea. Y para lo del Google+ entony guiando me la documentación: Sign In Users.

Agradezco por que me quiera colaborar o por su ayuda.

Gracias.

I've created an updated version of my Google service account library.  Of course this library makes use of the new Utilities.computeRsaSha256Signature(value, key) method.  I've added batch processing of user accounts in this version.  This makes it incredible simple to automate large number of Oauth2 token requests of users in your domain.  It still retains the ability to request an Oauth2 token for your script itself without any user interaction.

NOTE: This is not backwards compatible with the previous version of the library (version 4).  You can get the library project Id, source code and example project at the github repo:

My Color Arranger add-on for sheets is now available in the add-on store. 
Color Arranger enables sorting data in a Google Sheet by sorting or merging the background colors of one of the columns.

Yes it tries to figure out which is the most likely sort column (the most colorful one, or you can specify a specific column). You would be sorting the data in the whole sheet based on the color properties of the selected column. 

I'll take a look at your add-on.. looks interesting.

Google Forms moves to Material Design, but without add-ons initially. However, Google tells me that add-ons, as well as, other features are coming soon.  http://googledocs.blogspot.com/2015/09/sidekicks.html

Based on a recorded Hangout from Google's Apps Script Manager about add-ons, I would guess that our add-on UIs will need to move to Material Design eventually. However, it is possible that users may use "old" Forms or "new" Forms so that could mean if add-ons are implemented within the "new" Forms before the "old" option is removed, the add-on UI could be out of sync.  Perhaps Google will wait until the "old" alternative option is removed (meaning all users are using "new" Forms).

Updated Dialog2Sidebar Sample
This sample shows how you can have a dialog and sidebar in your add-on communicate with each other, for example when you want your sidebar to open a popup to collect additional information. It's been updated to use IFRAME sandboxing and take advantage of the intercom.js library for client-side, cross-page communication. This same model can be used when dealing with an OAuth flow, and needing to know when the user has approved the authorizations.
Contribute to apps-script-dialog2sidebar development by creating an account on GitHub.

+Eric Koleda It's surprising that it would be a major change to implement a google.script.host.hide() method for an open modal dialog.  

This method could add "display:none" to the style attribute for the <div class="modal-dialog script-app-dialog"></div> element.  It could also add a "modal-dialog-bg-hidden" class to the <div class="modal-dialog-bg"></div> element, with the following css rule:

div.modal-dialog-bg.modal-dialog-bg-hidden {
    z-index: 0;
    display: none;
}

This would hide the modal and the overlay, allowing the user to interact with the document, menu or sidebar.  I could then use intercom.js to populate the dialog client-side from the sidebar when needed, and I could call a google.script.host.show() client side method which undoes the hide() method changes.  This would allow me to then have the quiescent dialog available for when user interaction is needed, and populate it with html on demand, etc., from the sidebar without need for a server round trip.  

It also would have the benefit of reducing server load from apps scripts, by allowing developers to handle such interactions 100% client side, instead of having to burden the server with requests best handled client side.

It would be a huge benefit to developers like me if this functionality existed.

Thanks for listening.  I have been very impressed by the power of the GAS add-on environment, and I would love to see it improved in this fashion.

In light of the announcement +Eric Koleda gave about native support for RSA signatures in Apps Script I'm going to give a sunset notice for the default server of my TokenBuilder library.   Ill run the server for 60 more days to give you time to migrate to the Oauth2 library or to setup your own server.  If you wish to continue to use this library you can find the documentation on how to run your own signing service in the github repo:  https://github.com/Spencer-Easton/Apps-Script-Service-Account-TokenBuilder-Library

I have made a feature request which would provide a method for apps script developers to create first-class notices, alerts, requests for confirmation, etc. from client-side javascript in a sidebar.  By first-class, I mean providing a notice similar to those provided by a Google app, which appears centered over the document/sheet/form.  Currently, this can only be done with a round trip to apps script code on a server.

I ask everyone who thinks such functionality is important to better user interaction and feedback go star this issue:

In case you haven't been following this issue, where property services and cache services have been unreliable for the past couple of weeks, status is...

Looks like the cache service is now good again, but property service still occasionally returning stale values.

Thanks to +Eric Koleda for continuing to work this.

update on this- well ... there is no update. 

Property service still returning stale values. and Cache service still performing reliably

Cache problem was resolved within a week of reporting it, but the property service is still broken 3 weeks later. Hopefully it's still being worked...
