Google Data Framework for Cocoa

April 18, 2007

Some good news this week for Cocoa developers. Greg Robbins at Google recently released an Objective-C framework that allows you to use the APIs for Google Calendar, Google Base, Google Spreadsheets and others in an application, without having to worry too much about what’s going on behind the scenes.

It seems to me like this will greatly reduce the barrier of entry for anyone who’s been thinking of a neat way to integrate with a Google app, but doesn’t want to spend the time tying Cocoa together with the online APIs. I can certainly think of a few ideas I might like to play around with this summer.
