Uploading any file to Google Docs with Python


I recently had a discussion with a client of mine who mentioned that they manually upload backups of their website to Google Docs, that they had always wished that there was a way to FTP them up to save time. That's an interesting idea, said I, I just happen to have written a Google Docs API interaction class in PHP which can be used to upload files to Docs. I wondered whether I could do the same thing in Python and automate the whole backup process…

It turns out that it's actually quite a simple thing to do using Google's GData Python library and a little patience with Google's API documentation.
