Desktop Liberation aims to help you use cloud based APIS and services without being constrained by your desktop software. There’s a particular emphasis on Google Workspace and Cloud APIs and JavaScript, but there’s also plenty of Microsoft and other stuff here too. All code here is unprotected and free to re-use

To support my site, and if you find the material useful, you can buy my Google Apps Script and VBA titles published by O’Reilly media and Manning publications.

Here’s the latest.
