There are two ways to access Google Cloud Storage. The old S3 API and the new JSON API.
Fog::Storage::Google will automatically direct you to the appropriate API based on the credentials you provide it.
- The XML API is almost identical to S3. Use Google’s interoperability keys to access it.
- The new JSON API is faster and uses auth similarly to the rest of the Google Cloud APIs using a service account private key.
Google Compute Engine is a Virtual Machine hosting service. Currently it is built on version v1 of the GCE API.
As of 2017-12-15, we are still working on making Fog for Google Compute engine (
Fog::Compute::Google) feature complete. If you are using Fog to interact with GCE, please keep Fog up to date and file issues for any anomalies you see or features you would like.
Fog implements v1beta4 of the Google Cloud SQL Admin API. As of 2017-11-06, Cloud SQL is mostly feature-complete. Please file issues for any anomalies you see or features you would like as we finish adding remaining features.
Fog implements v3 of the Google Cloud Monitoring API. As of 2017-10-05, we believe Fog for Google Cloud Monitoring is feature complete for metric-related resources and are working on supporting groups.
We are always looking for people to improve our code and test coverage, so please file issues for any anomalies you see or features you would like.
Note: You must have a version of google-api-client > 0.8.5 to use the Pub/Sub API; previous versions will not work.
Fog mostly implements v1 of the Google Cloud Pub/Sub API; however some less common API methods are missing. Pull requests for additions would be greatly appreciated.
