comment How can Google Docs and markdown play nice?
This will work for a team of collaborators that agrees to install this client software, but other approaches described here work better for the case where you want a more seamless experience, e.g. to share with people who won't want to install more software.

And that is what mangini/gdocs2md is - a script. See the answer by trepdatious.

It is inappropriate to just link to your own page about your own software. That is indistinguishable from spam. Please describe your approach, how it is implemented, and whether it has any advantages over the other approaches described here.

comment Is there a way to filter out retweets?
That didn't work for me. I found the gear icon on their profile, and turned off retweets, but I still see retweets, even after refreshing the user's profile page. It's maddening that I can't just focus on their occasional actual tweets.

comment Can I use one-time passwords with Gmail?
This google feature still requires that you enter your actual password, and still allows 2-step login via SMS to a cell phone, so it doesn't address the original question - if they keylog your password and steal your phone and can receive SMS on it, you're still hosed. It does allow you to use 2-Step Verification without a working cellphone, via one-time passwords, though.

comment Import Google Docs document revision history into a Git repository?
I agree that it is a challenge to deal with a large number of revisions like that, but it would at least seem possible to batch them up into bundles when there is a pause in the editing, or a change in who is making changes.
