    Google Sheets Provider

    Create a provider to consume data from Google Sheets inside Insights for ArcGIS


    Insights for ArcGIS can connect to any data source using the provider patter. This project includes an example Koop provider compatiable with Insights for ArcGIS. Javascript is used to create an express web server, which includes web service that knows how to communicate with Google Sheets.


    • NodeJS



    git clone https://github.com/ArcGIS/google-sheets-provider.git cd google-sheets-provider npm install


    1. Obtain an API Key for Google Sheets - instructions
    2. Add the api key to you configuration
    • option 1: edit config/production.json and replace the value under googlesheets.auth with your api key
    • option 2: before running your server add your auth to your environment e.g. export GOOGLESHEETS_AUTH=YOUR_KEY


    npm start

    After npm start you should see something like this:

    > node server.js
