A Google Drive client for SailfishOS using pyotherside. 

Cargo was created out of necessity, my work relies heavily on Google Docs, and I just needed a simple/fast way to view/download files other than the browser...Cargo was born. 

Current Functionality: 

  • Open links
  • Download
  • Search
  • Upload

python3-pip is already a dependency and should be downloaded along Cargo. It does however require google's official api client. 


pip3 install --upgrade google-api-python-client google-auth-httplib2 google-auth-oauthlib


If you wish to use your own client_id. create a project( and add the following scopes and just replace the client_id before initial launch. 










Replace this file (/usr/share/harbour-cargo/qml/creds/client_id.json) with yours. 

If you have already logged in and wish to change to your own client, make sure to delete the token.

Token: /home/nemo/.config/harbour-cargo/token.pickle

Then, log in to your google account and remove cargo

Stuck on generating pickle, i dont know where to get the passcode.

is it the same password set in dev tools? We need to be root to install the packages. I didn't test it with --user but you can. The diff is that the packages in root are installed in /usr/local/lib/ whereas if given the --user arg it will install them in a dir owned by nemo. In theory installing with --user should work. If you have any more issues, find me on telegram @Mad_Dev

Thanks. I'm now getting "Auth failed" after I do devel-su pip3 install --upgrade google-api-python-client google-auth-httplib2 google-auth-oauthlib 

and enter my password.

Not very code literate but get 
ERROR: Could not install packages due to an EnvironmentError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/httplib2-0.18.1.dist-info'
Consider using the `--user` option or check the permissions.

when trying to do pip3 install --upgrade google-api-python-client google-auth-httplib2 google-auth-oauthlib

Any ideas please?
