Java, .NET, PHP, Python and Objective-C client libraries are officially supported by Google. Using these libraries, you can construct Google Data requests, send them to a service, and process server responses.
Developer Guides for the HTTP XML Protocol and other languages can be found at http://code.google.com/apis/sites/docs/developers_guide.html
The Sites Data API uses the following scope:
The site feed can be used to list the sites a user owns and/or has access to.
Yes. Google Workspace users can use the site feed to create new sites programmatically. We hope to open this features to all users in the future.
At this time, the API does not support deleting an existing site. Deleting sites must be done in the Google Sites control panel.
Google Workspace users can use the site feed to copy a site if you are an owner. You can also manually copy a site in the Google Sites settings page.
The acl feed offers this functionality.
Normally a sitemap refers to a sitemap.xml file used to help search engines index a website. In Google Sites, a 'sitemap' refers the tree presentation in (More Actions > Manage Site > Pages). While the API does not provide a direct method of retrieving this page hierarchy, the sitemap can be inferred from examining the parent links in each content entry. Each content entry is a leaf or node of the sitemap tree.
You must be a collaborator, owner, or admin of a Site to view its revision and activity feeds.
