 GoogleCL, is a command line tool that offers commands to control the contents sites of YouTube, Blogger, Picasa, the Google Apps, Calendar, Contacts, and Google docs.

If you want for for example  to upload a folder full of photos to Picasa from a command prompt you can type this command:

$  google picasa create --title "My album" ~/Photos/vacation/*.jpg 

Example editing blogger Blog:

$  google blogger post --blog "My blog" --tags "python, googlecl,  development" my_post.html 

Example Adding event to Calendar:

$ google calendar add "Lunch  with Jason tomorrow at noon"

Example editing a Google doc document :

$ google docs edit --title  "Shopping list" --editor vim

GoogleCL is a pure Python application that uses the Python gdata libraries to make Google Data API calls from the command line.

Read more at the GoogleCL project page, or jump right to the examples. Along with a standard tarball, there is  .deb package ready for download, and hope to have it included in Debian and Ubuntu repositories in time for their next releases.
