React hook for using google spreadsheet as a data table

React hook for using google spreadsheet as a data table

use-google-spreadsheet

helps developers use google spreadsheet as their data table (backend endpoint).

install

npm install use-google-spreadsheet

usage

  1. Configure Google Cloud Console to get API key for Google Sheets API (API_KEY)

    • It uses Google Sheets API v4, when API_KEY is given
    • If API_KEY is not given, it falls back to Google Sheets API v3 which would be deprecated soon
  2. Create a google spreadsheet

    • Insert keys in the first row
    • Insert values after first row
  3. Publish the spreadsheet to web (File > Publish to Web)

  4. Use the share url to fetch the data (File > Share)

  5. You'll fetch the spreadsheet as the following

spreadsheet

// fetched data (rows)
[
	{ "key1": "row1:value1", "key2": "row1:value2", "key3": "row1:value3" },
	{ "key2": "row2:value1", "key2": "row2:value2", "key3": "row2:value3" },
	{ "key3": "row3:value1", "key2": "row3:value2", "key3": "row3:value3" }
]

example

import useGoogleSpreadsheet from 'use-google-spreadsheet';

const SomeComponent = ({}) => {
	const API_KEY = 'XXXXXXXXXXXX';
	const shareUrl = 'https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1W5D9WvlrXvndEc0b42OsdzJTT1M-MxKVYdPEtleqRQY/edit?usp=sharing';
	const { rows, isFetching } = useGoogleSpreadsheet(shareUrl, API_KEY);
	return isFetching ? (
		<Spinner />
	) : rows ? (
		<ul>
			{rows.map((row, i) => {
				return (
					<li key={i}>
						{Object.keys(row).map((key, i) => (
							<span key={i}>
								{key}: {row[key]}
								<br />
							</span>
						))}
					</li>
				);
			})}
		</ul>

	);
};
