Google Apps Script is a cloud-based scripting language that extends the functionality of Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) applications. It's akin to JavaScript with built-in APIs specific to Google's services like Docs, Sheets, and Forms. GScript allows users to automate tasks and integrate functions across these productivity tools by writing scripts in a browser-based editor without requiring additional software or hardware. With this straightforward approach, users can create add-ons for extending application capabilities or build standalone web apps interactively using familiar syntax and libraries like JSON, XML, UrlFetchApp for sending HTTP requests, among others.
