Apps Script makes it easy to create and publish add-ons in an online store for Google Sheets, Docs, and Forms. There’s no better way to distribute scripts to large numbers of users, whether you want to ship your code to the whole world or keep it private to the users in your Google Apps domain.

A living, breathing platform (well, metaphorically)

  • Add-ons are now out of developer preview. This means anyone can now publish an add-on. New add-ons will still be reviewed prior to publishing, but the publishing process has been streamlined.
  • Add-ons can now be developed and published from standalone scripts (as opposed to scripts bound to a Sheet, Doc, or Form). The add-on must still operate on a Sheet, Doc, or Form, but the script does not need to be bound to a single master file. Developing from a standalone script is preferred in that it makes collaboration and testing easier.
  • Add-on scripts in development can be tested to ensure they behave as intended.
  • The DocsList service, which was deprecated in 2014, has been sunset and no longer functions. Users relying on DocsList should switch to DriveApp.
