Would you like to programmatically publish some web content? Or let your users do so in the context of your Drive app?

This is possible now with Google Drive. Your app can now insert static web assets in a publicly shared folder, and then serve those files directly to users via file names in a relative path. Google Drive site publishing supports JavaScript, so it's even possible to run a JavaScript Drive app directly from Drive.Google Drive Now Allows Site Publishing [googleappsdeveloper.blogspot.co.uk]
The ability to publish files this way opens lots of possibilities for Drive app developers. Writing a blogging tool, creating a process to publish updates to shared docs, outputting images in a folder in a gallery page any Drive use case that involves presenting a file in a browser can benefit from site publishing.
