Hello Guys,

First of all, congratulations for the fantastic job.

Some suggestions that I think are relevant for the future of this component:

1 - Try to use the Google SDK instead of invoking REST directly as their API can change frequently. Google recommends strongly that we use the SDK instead of the REST invocations directly.
2 - Add features to support "service user flow" to cover the use case of a business application that doesn't have Web UI to get data/documents from Google Drive.
3 - Add features to get data from documents and spreadsheets. The SDK would help a lot in this.

The reason for these suggestions is that now, I will have to build another Drive extension to cover use case 2 and I will have to use the SDK as the REST interface is too complex to implement for the use case 3 (getting data from spreadsheets)

Thank you and kind regards

I'll add my vote for #3.
