Google Calendar API Integrations

Build and run workflows using the Google Calendar API. Use 1000s of open source triggers and actions across 1000+ apps. Or write custom code to integrate any app or API in seconds.

Overview

The Google Calendar API gives developers access to Google Calendar data, allowing them to create their own applications that can read, write, and update calendar data. With the API, users can integrate their own calendar applications with Google Calendar, giving them the ability to manage their calendars in one place. The API also provides the ability to search for events and create new events.

Possible applications that could be built using the Google Calendar API include:

  • A calendar application that integrates with Google Calendar, allowing users to manage their calendars in one place.
  • A calendar application that allows users to search for events and create new events.
  • A to-do list application that integrates with Google Calendar, allowing users to see their tasks and events in one place.
  • A reminder application that uses Google Calendar data to remind users of upcoming events.

Authentication

Google Calendar uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Google Calendar account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Google Calendar and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Google Calendar API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.eventshttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.readonlyhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.settings.readonly
OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
    GEThttps://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth?client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&state={{oauth.state}}&response_type=code&scope={{oauth.space_separated_scopes}}&prompt=consent&access_type=offline
  2. accessToken
    POSThttps://oauth2.googleapis.com/tokencontent-type: application/x-www-form-urlencodedaccept: application/json
    client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&client_secret={{oauth.client_secret}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&grant_type=authorization_code&code={{oauth.code}}
  3. refreshToken
    POSThttps://oauth2.googleapis.com/tokencontent-type: application/x-www-form-urlencodedaccept: application/json
    client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&client_secret={{oauth.client_secret}}&grant_type=refresh_token&refresh_token={{oauth.refresh_token}}

Adding Google Calendar to Your Jamstack - with Pipedream
Adding Google Calendar to Your Jamstack - with Pipedream
Late last year (remember last year - sigh) I wrote up a post demonstrating how to integrate Google Calendar into your static web site: "Adding Google Calendar to your JAMStack". In that article, I describe how I used Google's Node libraries to read my event data. While it was mostly painless, authentication was a bit difficult to figure out. A few days I was thinking about this usecase and realized I could probably do it a lot easier making use of Pipedream. How so? Don't forget that Nelify lets you create a build hook. This is a unique URL that when hit with a POST request will trigger a new build. In theory, all I have to do is create a Pipedream workflow that's fired on new events. How is that done?
