As of 7/5/2011, Google has not published an API for Google Plus support, since it is still in the early trial stages of the service.
Once they have published an API and opened the service up to more users, it will definitely be on our list of services to support.
Excellent. Assumed you'd be doing this but good to know it's "official". Assume it will go in both directions if possible, i.e. posting to G+ and from G+ to other services?
George - we will support posting if they provide RSS outputs.
I added that feature request to a thread on of the G+ devs started on G+ asking for wish list items.
looking forward to this update...
yep same here, definitely looking forward to this!
in the meantime, you can at least generate RSS feeds of google profiles, as mentioned in this post from mashable.com http://bit.ly/njxJZa
OmniZed - we will use whatever feed you put in. We aren't in the screen-scraping business, though, so we won't generate items from non-feed content.
To clearify, my main interest is to post from rss to Google+, not the other way around. To post to G+ you need an official API. To deliver post from G+ to other services (Twitter, Facebook etc) via Dlvr.it Google needs to provide them as a feed.
OmniZed - thanks for that link! Handy. I'm with Hakan as far as primarily being interested in posting to G+, but would like it both ways. That link above from OmniZed seems to at least solve that temporarily.
I agree with everyone here. And i'm looking forward to dlvr.it's implementation of both reading and writing to G+.I was just merely sharing the temporary one-way routing out of G+. I got excited when i first read their post title, thinking G+ API was becoming accessible.Even though it wasn't what i had hoped for, i thought it may be interest to you (dlvr.it users ;) in the interim.And no worries, Jay R :)Just keep doing what yall do...the service rocks!
Hi, Jay R and everyone!
I agree !!
It loos forward．
What about a PHP type system to use the posting text box and create a new post?
Can you explain more in detail what you're talking about? (And how it applies to Google+?)
Maybe something like:http://think2loud.com/288-using-jquery-and-xml-to-populate-a-drop-d...
That is actually jquery, but something like this might work: http://www.daniweb.com/web-development/php/threads/115306 it is just an idea maybe not workable but if you built a system around Google+ then it could work, and if you could set it up to do something like find the username and password fields, sign-in, find the correct text box, enter the text from an XML feed and submit the text box then you would be the first service of your type to get XML feeds posting to Google+.
Then you could develop a way for it to find the image attaching options, be able to share with circles, etc.
It might be a little slower but could be very workable.
I will be out for the weekend and will be back Sunday.
I'm sorry, but we only work with official Application Programming Interfaces. Kludging together a hack to utilize a site's UI for posting is very fragile, requires many extra steps, will break often and, as you pointed out, is very slow.
Once Google releases the official Google+ API we will add the ability to post, but not until then.
I know, it was just an idea :)
Just wanted to follow up on this and let people know. Google announced an API for Plus today, however this API is for reading data only. There is still no API which will allow services to post updates to your account.
Pity. Is that policy not to have the inbound API, or just that they don't have one yet ?
I see that involver and hootsuite are using google plus api. When will dlvr.it have it? please advise asap!
Dustin, this post will be updated when more information is available.
Well reading data is a start, at least one step better than parsing a feed. In the meantime, does the G+ feed method support PuSH updates?
Hi I'm looking forward for this functionality coming to dlvr.it.
I will love if the Google API will eventually allow posting the news to a Google+ Pages and not only the user page.
I'm with Martin!!
I use Google+ as my primary user interface and last year I experimented with user-written canned scripts that scraped my own Google+ posts and copied to Twitter. They all either broke or added advertising text so I slowly drifted away from dlvr.it. I would really love to have a way to channel the first sentence of each of my posts along with a link to my Twitter feed and perhaps an added hashtag. The first line of my Google+ posts is almost invariably a brief bolded headline terminating in a full stop/period.
Google's API may still be a bit experimental but it's well up to this simple task. I could write a local script to do this but that doesn't really fit with my policy of using public online services (which absolves me of having to fix broken scripts myself).
Tony, please see http://support.dlvr.it/entries/20312856-how-to-automatically-send-y...
I really don't know if it can be possible now but the API is located here: https://developers.google.com/+/api/
I'm really looking forward to be able for dlvr.it to have the functionality to add a news from a RSS to a Google+ page. I have my news site in Joomla and I use it to replicate the news to Twitter and Facebook fan page. I really want to be able to post them on a Google+ Page. (also because I'm stating to like Google+ more than facebook)
There is still no posting API for Google+. The "Google+ API" that's available right now is only for reading posts from Google, and that's what is used by dlvritplus.
Thanks Jay R. for letting us know.
Seems like the need to follow Vic Gundotra (https://plus.google.com/107117483540235115863) until his team releases the API.
First of all, your support team has been excellent so far. I've had feature requests in the past that were met rather quickly.
It's a shame Google+ won't open up their API for posting to their network. One of many reasons I have accounts there that just don't get used.
I know Hootsuite has the ability to post RSS entries to Google+, but I wonder if it's a bit of a hack that they're using. Those posts don't include images like dlvr.it does on Facebook, and it's far from ideal. I'll use Hootsuite as a half baked solution for now, but looking forward to the dlvr.it solution one day!
HootSuite was/has been given exclusive access to the read/write API because of their high-profile customers.
I was just merely sharing the temporary one-way routing out of G+. I got excited when i first read their post title, thinking G+ API was becoming accessible.
Please see our blog post for updates - http://blog.dlvr.it/2013/01/dlvr-it-now-supports-posting-to-google-...
It was good to see that this request was implemented on dlvr.it.
Sadly my non-profit user community can not afford to pay for the service. But I still want to thanks dlvr.it for existing and giving for free the service to post to Twitter and Facebook.
