Here’s how to get up to speed with the Google Sheets cell-based feed and PHP.
My previous posts have illustrated the use of Google’s PHP API client to interact with Google Sheets using list-based feeds. Â This method is ideal for reading from and writing to spreadsheets that have a single header row, but isn’t useful for more complicated sheets.
The cell-based feed allows individual cells to be read and written. Â I’ve written some example PHP code that implements the cell-based feed methods to help get you up to speed a little quicker. Â Google documentation is here.
To start, follow the steps in this post to set up your service account, share a spreadsheet, and install the API client. Â Then you should be able to adapt my example code to interact with your spreadsheet.
