CONFIGURATION

Basic configuration can be done in ~/.netrc

machine google.com
login your_login@gmail.com
password your_password

To have access to more advanced options, you can generate .goobookrc config file by doing:

goobook config-template > ~/.goobookrc

An example config can look like this:

[DEFAULT]
email: your_login@gmail.com
password: your_password
cache_filename: ~/.goobook_cache
cache_expiry_hours: 24

If you do not give email and password, they will be read from .netrc. You can set password to prompt, in this case goobook will ask for your password on every request. Instead of giving password in plain text, you can use passwordeval option to set a command for extracting password from a secure location. You can use gpg for this:

gpg --batch -d ~/encrypted_password_file.gpg
