SitePoint PHP Blog:
Can We Use Laravel to Build a Custom Google Drive UI?
Jul 25, 2016 @ 13:57:52

The SitePoint PHP blog has posted a new tutorial that asks the question "Can We Use Laravel to Build a Custom Google Drive UI??" In this case it's a simplified version of the current Google Drive functionality, but it's more of a proof-of-concept than anything.

In this tutorial, we’re going to build an app that talks to the Google Drive API. It will have file search, upload, download and delete features. If you want to follow along, you can clone the repo from Github.

They walk you through the full process of getting the application set up, including creating the project on the Google side and grabbing the API credentials for use in your code. They then switch back over to the code side and create a basic Laravel project and configure it with the Google API credentials you just created. Next up is the creation of all of the routes for the list, upload and delete handling in the Laravel app as well as the controllers/views to make them all work. They also include search functionality, letting you easily query the API for files with names matching a certain string.
