GDocsUploader 1.2 released

Posted in Technicalon May 6, 2008

I released version 1.2 (download) of my little GDocsUploader program. After being published on a few websites and having over 4000 downloads, I thought it might be nice to update the app a little.

There are bug fixes, better error dialogs, a new icon (used under a creative commons license) and uploading of photos into Picasa Web Albums. A bulleted list of changes is published in the project wiki.

GDocsUploader is a small Mac OS X program that I wrote to quickly upload documents to Google Docs, simply by dragging and dropping a document icon onto the uploader icon.

Great little app, thank you. One thing you might look at, if you haven’t already, is that Google Docs now accepts PDFs. I tried to upload via your app, and it knows to filter by file type, but apparently that knowledge is hardwired, not fetched from Google. Thus, have you thought of updating it to accommodate PDF uploads?

Thanks again,

The uploader uploads documents through the Google Document List api. Currently it seems that the api doesn’t support PDF uploads, according to the Google Code FAQ. When the API supports uploading PDFs, I will gladly incorporate the functionality into the uploader app.

Is there a way to disable the dialog box that asks you if you want to open the document in a browser?

I’ve completely abandoned GDocsUploader development because of the release of Google Drive, and because it was developed with Adobe Air which turned out to be a bad decision.
