Printing module for Google Cloud Print

Status: Coding


Google Cloud Print is a web service provided by Google that allows people to share their printers (more information). In addition to being able to print to printers shared on Google Cloud Print, there is an equivalent of "Print to file" in the form of "Save to Google Drive" (see screenshot).

The cloudprint module uses gnome-online-accounts to obtain the OAuth 2.0 access token for the Google account, so another "scope" needs to be requested in the google goa backend.

Currently it can discover available printers, get simple details about them such as display name and status, and submit jobs without any special options.
