Google just announced a nice bit of API code that will allow developers to to make it easy for readers of websites to download files to their Google Drive account.
Adding a Save to Drive button on your website is easy. You simply have to include the script and HTML tag below:
<script src="https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js"></script> <div data-filename="My Statement.pdf" data-sitename="My Company Name" data-src="/path/to/myfile.pdf"> </div>
It isn’t hard to see how this could come in handy.
