But what if there were more than two languages to support? Could we do most of the work once and pass queries and results back and forwards? In this post I showed how to hand off the business of credential storage to ScriptDB and of doing rest queries needing oAuth using google Apps script as a proxy.
Moving on from that, I looked at how we could focus API mashups to one language, and create an entirely new pseudo api based on that mashup, with the results being delivered as a jSon response.
But what else? In Urbarama mashup I showed how to combine 2 APIs to create a simpler UI - but I still had to implement it in both VBA and Google Apps Script. As a new pattern for the future, for these type of applications, why not write only the Google Apps Script version, and return the result (whether to VBA or an entirely different language) as a jSon reponse.
