Library, a Doc System Powered By Google Drive

This was sent in Issue #26 of Squirrel Notes on April 3, 2019.

The New York Times has open-sourced what they call Library – a documentation system which is powered by Google Docs.

To add a page to Library, you simply create a new Google Doc, or move an existing document into the folder or team drive that powers Library. Existing pages feature a convenient link that enables quick access to the Google Docs interface for any particular document, and editing the Google Doc makes changes to the page in Library.

While writing in Google Docs generally drives me nuts, its collaboration tool are almost impossible to match, and integration with GSuite makes so much sense for so many organizations.

Here’s the Github repo (which, ironically, has a bunch of documentation...)
