Google Apps Script

Class ContentService

Service for returning text content from a script. You can serve up text in various forms. For example, publish this script as a web app.

 
function doGet() {
   return ContentService.createTextOutput("Hello World");
 }
 
When visiting the web app URL you will see "Hello World" in the browser. Due to security considerations, scripts cannot directly return content to a browser. Instead, they must serve the content from a different URL. This is why the URL in the browser for output created via this web app will be different than the original script URL.
