Title: connecting unity playmaker with googlespreasheet
Post by: hoyoyo80 on October 01, 2018, 09:56:40 PM
Hi all:)

Im thinking of making a simple online database(non game) with unity playmaker.
Is there any tutorial/tool i need as extension to playmaker or unity that can use google spreadsheet as backend of the online database?

Thanks

Hi,

 yes, There is a sample on the PlayMaker Ecosystem that shows how to read from the google spreadsheet.

 unfortunatly, there is no good solution for writing back, the only solution I know isn't quite battle tested yet so I can't do any port for that solution just yet, I have put the link below: WARNING: it has no PlayMaker support.

Hi Jean!

Firstly a big thank you for making this into a sample. Its quite good for reference.
I have a query regarding using the Google Sheets.

Is it converting directly the data using the "XML Save into Proxy" action or there is another action that is doing the conversion of this data into XML format?

Upon inspection I found out that there are tags with "gsx" used in the XML, are we supposed to use the Google Sheets API to convert this data?

Secondly,

There was an error using the WWW in the sample in my project. I had to use the Web Request action instead.

Please guide.
Regards

Hi,

 yeah, the www action doesn't always work, on IOS for example, so indeed, use the web request.

as for the gsx, this is the domain, check out how I query using xpath to get to there domains, xmlMaker works ok with that.

Bye,
