If we take a look at Google Apps Script we can see API related to just about everything except Google Docs Fusion Tables that are supposed to be some sort of lightweight database tables.

Can anybody tell me whether we can access those using Google Apps Scripts? And how... Why? Because we could build even better dynamic Google Sites since these tables have indexes and are definitely faster than using Spreadsheets.

Just to make it clear. I'm talking about these tables:

If you mean the tables in Google Docs Documents, then I don't think so. They are just a feature in the text of the document. I guess you could parse the text to find them, but I'm not sure. – benregn Feb 23 '12 at 5:36
@benregn: I've updated my question and added an image to make it completely clear which tables I'm talking about. Not the ones, you mentioned in your comment. But those shown in above image. – Robert Koritnik Feb 23 '12 at 8:34

There is no official support for Google Fusion Tables in Google Apps Scripts as at Feb 2012. However, there is a sample App Scripts projects that provides simple CRUD wrapper against the Google Fusion Tables API

You can install the sample project by going to the Insert menu and selecting Script then searching for "Fusion"

Fusion API wrapper project

Install this project and you will be able to query the Fusion Tables API via Google Apps Scripts.
