Présentation de l'éditeur

In Detail

Google Apps Script is a JavaScript-based programming language that works on the cloud and is 100% free to use. It provides all the tools necessary for Google services to work. Users can easily transfer any data from one service to another, save their important e-mails as files, save and share files with anybody, and even build their own website. It’s a great way of allowing people with minimal technical knowledge to create great solutions for their company.

This book is a practical hands-on guide which is presented and explained with working examples to help you get started with Google Apps Script. You will create custom functions in your spreadsheets, design your own forms, filter your emails, and publish web applications that you can use every day.

You are going to be part of a great journey from basic spreadsheet functionality and customization to fully automated workflows; all of this almost seamlessly and without complications.

On your way, you will filter your e-mails, create your forms, calculate all sorts of parameters, and be able to share just about anything that can be shared; all of this with the power of Google Apps Script at your fingertips. You will learn to embed scripts and text documents in Google sites, and will also be taken through standalone applications and user interfaces. The book ends with some tips and tricks to expand your knowledge.


This book is a simple step-by-step, example-oriented guide with a focus on providing the practical skills necessary to develop and customize apps with Apps Script.

Who this book is for

If you are an application developer with no knowledge of App Script, and would like to learn to build apps using Google Apps script from scratch, then this book is for you. Basic JavaScript knowledge is required.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good overview of Google Apps Script ecosystem 8 mai 2014
Understanding how Google Apps Scripts works and its scope can be very confusing at first as the informations are spread in several documentations and its not very known yet. This book gives a good overview of the Google Apps Script ecosystem and all the possibilities it can give you.

You'll go through basic spreadsheet scripting, to forms management and standalone user interfaces using the Google widgets APIs.

If you want to extend the Google Apps powers, this book, although not complete (very broad subject), is worth reading as it will give you the basics to start and you will save a lot of time.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Potent subject, unfortunately poorly executed 10 mars 2014
Par Oleg - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
When I got an opportunity to review the new upcoming book "Google Apps Script for Beginners" by Serge Gabet, I was pretty excited. Although I have been in IT Development for several decades, I'm relatively new when it comes to Apps Script and so I was grateful to the publishers to get an advanced copy to review.

The book started out with some examples of calculating number of day's in one's life, which is kind of interesting, but isn't exactly useful. Reading more into it I realized that this book wasn't very well conceived nor executed. It has plenty of examples, with comments in the code, but it never takes a beginner, which is whom this book is supposedly written for, and guides that beginner step-by-step on their learning journey. It shows code examples, but doesn't walk the reader through them, while carefully explaining why it does what it does, and how exactly it's being accomplished. It just refers one to use Google's documentation for details.

The author throws in some personal biases about what's great and what's missing, some of which I agree with, but this book wasn't supposed to be a philosophical discussion, or so I thought anyway. It didn't have a well-founded structure and continuously increasing in complexity examples. Instead it went from very simple to not-so-simple, with nothing in between and no appreciable explanation of details..

The book has many links and references to Google's tutorials and reference materials, and the author recommends examining those for more info, leaving one to question why they would even buy this book, when they could've easily found all of these resources on Google. In other words, if I can go and learn all of this directly via Google's resources - why do I need this book to simply reference those resources? The answer, of course, is I do not.

I found some typos, where they shouldn't have been if it was properly edited, so that told me that the book was somewhat rushed.

It does come with the source code online, in downloadable form. I downloaded some examples and tried them and they seemed to work as described. For the record - I didn't try all of them. The examples in the book certainly have some value. Unfortunately much of the user interface examples deal with UI Service, which the author clearly likes, but it's an Experimental service, according to Google, meaning they can eliminate it at any time, like they did with GUI Builder. There are references to certain Google Forums, which according to the author had vast amounts of potent info, yet he indicates that they're no longer available… which begs the point - why are you even bringing it up if that's the case?

The bottom line - this is a very amateurish book, more like a personal blog than a teaching vehicle, and if you're brand new to programming and Google Apps Script, trying to learn it - I don't think this book will do the trick for you. I think you'll be better off simply going to Google's resources at [...] and going through their tutorials and code examples.

With that said - always remember that everyone has their own opinions, therefore mine may not be congruent with yours, thus you might want to take a look at it yourself to make a decision whether it's a book for you or not. You can find the book at [...]

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A Painful Read 1 juin 2014
Par W. Matthew Sakkas - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book lacks a mission. It's not a JavaScript book. It's not a Google Scripts reference. It's sort of a strange hybrid of the two. The author assumes you know JavaScript, so he doesn't really go into that. And he repeatedly refers the reader to Google's documentation for details on the various services that are available.

Teaching JavaScript in the context of Google Apps Script would have been interesting. But the author doesn't really seem to know what he wants to do. The result is a haphazard jumble of topics, with no clear objective. The lack of structure is made worse by poor grammar, typos and loads of poorly documented code.

Perhaps some people will find this useful as a sort of Google Apps Script cookbook. But, in general, I would recommend getting a decent JavaScript book and using Google's documentation to fill in the missing pieces.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Warning: Not for Beginners 8 septembre 2014
Par Jeremy Bell - Publié sur
Great book for intermediate learners, but definitely not a book for beginners. That must have been a marketing gimmick.

The book would be excellent for someone that already knows Javascript and Google Apps Script in order to give them specific ideas in how to use apps script to control Google Apps (Gmail, sheets, etc).

I already know Javascript and Google Apps Script and I can see how reading through this book how a noobie would be totally blown away. The author suggests a just "copy and paste" style, but then what's the point? What is the reader learning by copy and pasting your intermediate level code into a browser and hitting run?

I'm extremely impressed by the author being able to learn Google Apps Script as a teacher, because that must have been incredibly difficult. The book isn't horrible, but hopefully his second effort will create something more focused and coherent.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 When the First Scripts Don't Work... 14 juin 2014
Par Dan Shafer - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I've bought dozens of computer programming books over the years. I've also written my fair share. When the first tutorial scripts in the book fail to run correctly even when you copy and paste them from the downloaded file, it's a good sign that you're not going to be in for a useful experience.

That was the case with this book for me. It may even have been somehow my fault (though it's hard to see why; I don't know enough to screw this up at least in theory). I spent about 3 hours trying to get the third and fourth scripts in the book to work right, kept getting errors, and finally gave up.

This is the first-ever Kindle book I've returned for a refund. The other negative reviews here are correct, in my experience.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Beginners to Google Apps Script, not to Google Apps 9 avril 2014
Par Grant Swertfeger - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
I was given the opportunity to review this book and I think the title matches exactly what the book contains. I would contend that the Google Apps scripts contained in the book are good examples of what can be accomplished using the technology. I would offer a word of caution for those who are unfamiliar with Google Apps, there is an unspoken prerequisite to this book wherein you need to be familiar with the in's and out's of Google Apps in order to grasp the concepts being taught. I find most of the examples are based upon the assumption you understand the formulas and tasks associated with common use of these applications.

However, if you are aquainted with the inner workings of Google Apps, this book will provide useful to you when you have a complicated task or calculation and cannot find a solution provided by Google. Therefore this book would best serve those who have run into difficulties and wish to create a custom solution.
