Getting Started with the Tasks API on Google App Engine

This is cross-posted from the Google Apps Developer Blog

Last month, we launched the Google Tasks API, which received a very warm welcome in the developer community. Google Tasks stores tasks that users enter via Gmail, their mobile device, calendar, or iGoogle homepage. The Google Tasks API provides developers with a powerful set of API endpoints for searching, reading, and updating Google Tasks content and metadata.

To help all of you get started using the Google Tasks API, we wrote a new hands-on tutorial: Getting Started with the Tasks API on Google App Engine. In this tutorial, you will learn how to:
  • Create a simple App Engine app using the Google APIs Client Library.
  • Provide Google Tasks users a mechanism to authorize your app to access their tasks.
  • Make authorized requests to the Tasks API.

By the end of the tutorial, you’ll have an App Engine app that creates a stylized list of tasks for a specific user delivered from the Tasks API: Check out the tutorial and ask any questions you have in the Google Tasks API forum.
