I am looking into managing Google Calendar through FMP.

 

I know there are plug-ins available to do this, but I am trying to keep costs at a minimum.

 

I've gotten as far as figuring out the the Calendar API can be accessed through a REST request:
https://developers.google.com/google-apps/calendar/firstapp#rest

 

Which seems it should be able to compile a request like this:

https://www.googleapis.com/calendar/v3/calendars/calendarID/events/eventID?parameters

 

I think I should be able to perform the authentication through this method as well:

https://developers.google.com/google-apps/calendar/auth

 

The problem is I can't piece it all together.

 

Has anyone had any experience with this before, or similar?

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

I have not been able to make OAuth work with HTTP POST.  Largely because it requires custom headers, which we can't do, and I also had trouble with the encryption.  Granted, it's been over a year since I looked at it.

Perhaps you can make something work with the JavaScript library in a web viewer
