Oh ugh. The master gem isn't up to date for Ruby 1.9, there are forks which are, but installing the fork using Bundler requires me to clone the fork locally and re-host it on Github... bozhe moi.

I'm not avoiding it, I just found it easier (so far) to export CSV because I'm not familiar with the gdata libraries (yet). (Don't get me started on the CSV library I ended up with...) I'll look into the gdata plugin and see where that lands me.

Are you suggesting using something like github.com/tricycle/gdata_spreadsheet to push the data directly to the spreadsheet?

The data in question is inventory questions about use of the website, e.g. a list of user-created objects on the site for administrators, a sort of activity report on the site itself. If there's a way to pull this data directly into a Google spreadsheet without it being in CSV, I'd love to hear about it.
