gotJS: UiBot - Google Apps Script User Interface Library - build UI from JSON objects by Dan Gottlieb

gotJS: UiBot - Google Apps Script User Interface Library - build UI from JSON objects by Dan Gottlieb | Instructional Technology for Scotland County Schools | Scoop.it

"I've been playing around with Google Apps Script lately, and I thought I'd share a small class I wrote to make building user interfaces with the UI Service a little more pleasant. With this library, you can specify an interface through a simple declarative JSON syntax, rather then a lot of chained function calls (or the GUI builder). It also includes some helpers to reduce the amount of code needed to build forms." by Dan Gottlieb via Eric Koleda

Super Simple Website Checker - Uptime checker app coded in Google Apps Script by Jan Kleinert

Super Simple Website Checker - Uptime checker app coded in Google Apps Script by Jan Kleinert | Instructional Technology for Scotland County Schools | Scoop.it

"Super Simple Website Checker was built using Google Apps Script and demonstrates the usage of HtmlService, ScriptDb, triggers, and UrlFetch. You can view the source code for the web app here: https://script.google.com/d/1ZA2u-HUSHx_5O9YXIKQLirrvlzXXzuvx4373G8DRUgNyGPmeUxGCIlh8/edit

 

Super Simple Website Checker is a sample app that allows you to monitor the uptime, or status, of websites. For each website you choose to monitor, the app will check the status of those websites every 15 minutes. You can view the status in the app itself, and for any websites that are not up (that is, not returning an HTTP 200 OK status), you'll get an email update to inform you of the status for those failing websites.

Managing tasks and reminders through Google Apps Script - By Romain Vialard

Managing tasks and reminders through Google Apps Script - By Romain Vialard | Instructional Technology for Scotland County Schools | Scoop.it

"There are many tools available to help you manage a task list and Google Apps comes with its own simple Tasks app. But sometimes it is more convenient and collaborative to simply manage your task list in a shared spreadsheet. This spreadsheet can be a simple personal task list or a project-management interface that requires team-wide coordination.

 

Google Spreadsheets come with a set of notification rules that might come in handy. For example, you can be notified each time someone adds a new task to the list or each time the status of a task is updated. Furthermore, it is very easy add to add basic reminders through Apps Script with just a few lines of code ..."

Collaborative Tools Project: An Alternative To Google Calendar's Appointment Slots made using Google Apps Script

Collaborative Tools Project: An Alternative To Google Calendar's Appointment Slots made using Google Apps Script | Instructional Technology for Scotland County Schools | Scoop.it

"

You might not know but Google are dropping the Appointment Slots feature from Google Calendar. The academic community has been pretty miffed about this decision because it's one of the features they've really taken to their hearts and were actively using. Appointment Slots are a great way of making any number of tutorial slots available for tutorials and letting students pick which times suit them. Google responded to the academic outcry with a list of alternatives. This list included paid for services with no clear pricing model for enterprise, downloadable open source software and, rather desperately, a few web2.0 tools that weren't even relevant. Few of these tools integrated with Google Calendars or Contacts, none would have worked with our log ins, and of course, none would be embedded in your Google Calendar making it easy to create overlapping or clashing appointments. So, I wondered how useful a tool I could create using Apps Script. Of course I couldn't embed it Google Calendar but it could work with our York single sign-on, and add details to Google Calendar. The Apps Script environment is limited in many ways - making it difficult to create an elegant solution, but its integration abilities might make it "good enough" for booking tutorial slots."
