Working with Google docs, as if we were working in local

google_docs_logo1

In today's article we see a little hack to access our Google docs as if we were working in local. In practice "'ll mount" the cloud of our documents made available by Google to a local folder. We can browse between the files as locally, rename, move, copy, As if they were on our pc.

The software that will handle the sharing is called "google-docs-fs", a small script in Python with API Fuse, available for Linux and Mac.
