Use your Google Apps Script skills in the Coda Packathon and compete for $20K in prizes

Build an extension that adds new powers to Coda docs for a chance at $20,000 in prizes.

In my opinion Apps Script is a somewhat undervalued skill. So much of the world runs on spreadsheets, and many of those sheets are glued together using Apps Script. Well the good news is that your Apps Script skills are the perfect fit for a virtual hackathon running now: the Coda Packathon.

Coda is a new kind of doc, built for teams, sort of like a cross between Sheets, Docs, and Sites. Instead of a scripting language Coda includes Packs, a simple plugin mechanism that lets you enhance the core features of the doc. We just launched the platform, and to celebrate we’re running a six-week virtual hackathon to see who can build the best Packs.

Writing a Pack is a lot like writing an Apps Script:

  1. You can create a Pack from start to finish in your browser (use pack.new)
  2. Packs are written using JavaScript (technically TypeScript, but you don’t need to use types)
  3. Packs can be used to add a custom formula, sync data into a table, update a record in an API.

Discover how to interact with Coda webhook-based automations using Google Apps Script

Discover how to interact with Coda webhook-based automations using Google Apps Script! In this post, we’ll explore different code patterns in both Coda’s formula language and Google Apps Script to send data contained in a Google Spreadsheet to a Coda table, and also perform other related tasks, using the new (May 2022) webhook-powered Coda automations.

For those unfamiliar with Coda:

Coda provides word-processing, spreadsheet, and database functions. It’s a canvas that blends spreadsheets, presentations, apps, and documents together. The software can integrate with third-party services like Slack and Gmail.

This post from Pablo Felip is a great opportunity to see what is possible using the new Coda webhook-powered automations. We’ve previously featured a couple of Coda/Apps Script integrations on Pulse, that have highlighted solutions using the Coda REST API and Coda Packs. This is the first we’ve seen using webhooks, which have a ‘no-code’ when/if/then setup interface. This route may provide the quick glue required for your Coda/Google Workspace integration. Pablo includes all the source code in the post as well as detailed instructions for setting up.

Totally Unscripted: Enough of this sheet. A look at Coda with Eric Koleda, Developer Advocate @coda_hq

As part of our last episode of Totally Unscripted we spoke to former Google Workspace DevRel Eric Koleda about his new role supporting the Coda community.

Coda provides word-processing, spreadsheet, and database functions. It’s a canvas that blends spreadsheets, presentations, apps, and documents together. The software can integrate with third-party services like Slack and Gmail.

Eric gave a fantastic overview of the Coda platform highlighting opportunities for developers to integrate with services like Google Apps Script via the Coda REST API and the new Coda Packs, which are currently in beta.

The clip is an excerpt from the full show where we get to see these features in action and some additional resources referenced are linked below:

Syncing Data from Coda to Google Sheets And Vice Versa with Google Apps Script [A How-To Guide] | Hacker Noon

Last year I published a tutorial on how to sync data between two Coda docs and data between two Google Sheets. What was missing from the tutorial was how to sync data between a Coda doc and a Google Sheet.

A step-by-step walk-through by Al Chen on syncing data from Coda -> Google Sheets and from Google Sheets -> Coda

Dear Analyst #31: Writing Google Apps Scripts to sync data from Coda to Google Sheets • KeyCuts Blog

Use cases for Google Apps Script include syncing data from Coda to Google Sheets.

Always nice to see other products promoting integrations to Google with Google Apps Script. In this post/podcast Al Chen links to a detailed tutorial and code for syncing data to and from Google Sheets to Coda. If you aren’t familiar:

Coda brings all of your words and data into one flexible surface. Coda comes with building blocks—like tables and buttons—and time-saving templates, so your doc can grow and evolve with the needs of your team.

Syncing handwritten notes from reMarkable 2 to Notion [or A.N. Other via your Gmail inbox with a little Google Apps Script]

Use Google AppsScript to automatically sync your reMarkable notes via Gmail to Notion.

Not the first example I’ve seen where the lack of API’s or other suitable integrations leads someone to using their inbox as an interface to move data around. This is a nice script example for moving handwritten notes made using reMarkable to project management and note-taking service, Notion. If you are not a Notion user it would be easy to send notes to another destination like Tasks, Sheets or a different external service like Coda.

[Aside: Yesterday in Pulse we highlighted some work by Pablo Felip on Coda webhook-based automations with Apps Script. This resulted in a useful discussion on Twitter with Coda developer advocate Eric Koleda about when best to use Coda’s webhooks:

So if you are a Coda user you might want to look at reMarkable -> Gmail -> Apps Script -> Coda webhook :)]

Create Google Calendar events from sending yourself a Gmail on a mobile device using Google Apps Script

This Google Apps Script allows you to create a Google Calendar event by sending yourself an email in Gmail. Unlike Gmail’s current feature to create Google Calendar events, this script allows you to be on a mobile device.

We’ve featured a couple of contributions from Al Chen in the past and this is another great one. For some context Al has also posted Productivity hack for creating a Google Calendar event by sending yourself an email. For the source code and setup follow the link at the end of the post.

Visually display status when looping through Google Sheets data with Google Apps Script

show a processing status in a cell when looping through rows in google sheets using google apps script.

When working with small batches of data it can be useful to show the user that the data is being processed. Here is an example script from Sourabh Choraria which use SpreadsheetApp.flush() to force write updates to a Google Sheet. As this method relies on .setValue() instead of .setValues() it’s worth keeping in mind for bigger data sets that using HTMLService and a custom dialog or Speadsheet.toast()

If the .setValue() / .flush() Al from coda has provided this gist
