Indexing Google Drive documents?

Post by quinncom » Sat Feb 21, 2015 3:10 am

It would be great to be able to search for docs, sheets, and slides located in drive.google.com using launchbar. I don't mean local files synced with google drive (I don't use that) but to be able to quickly search and open google drive documents on the website. Does such a feature exist in launchbar, or through a 3rd-party action?

I've been trying to do this for a long time. Short answer is that you can initiate a search from LaunchBar by following these instructions:

but that's not really what I want. I'd like to be able to have a local index of all the files in my google drive account and then be able to search it either from LaunchBar or Spotlight. I don't think it can be done. Here's a summary I wrote up a few years ago, and I don't think any new options have emerged (see the last posting):

If you find any other good options please share.
