Introducing the Google Command Line Tool

Google had introduce Google Tool. Which helps user to use google services from Linux command prompt i.e. Google Command Line Tool.
I just donwload these tool from GoogleCL project site website. This had dependency on gdata-python-client.
You can install these pages by following command.
$ tar zxvf gdata-2.0.10.tar.gz
$sudo python install

$tar zxvf googlecl-0.9.7.tar.gz
$sudo python install

I had tested by uploading my HawkBoard photos on my Picasaweb.
$google picasa create --title "Hawkboard"  /tmp/photos/*.png

It just ask confirmation in your browser, once you grant access it start uploading.

This tools are very very helpful for your videos and lots of docs/presentations if you want to upload on Google Services.

Check below screenshot for command line output.
