I don’t understand the the GoogleSheet.new() part. Could you explain it differently please?

Of course, GoogleSheet.new() is the module base, from this you can use the methods:

The URL needed by the module is split like this


and to use it is like this

local GST = GoogleSheets.new("1nj6oilCFIXZAVvifsu7UrfLJ3yLiwVwx1FOZivGvUw4", "163593929")

with that, the module will build the URL to get the data.

So is it work? Let me know your result

You can try it yourself to see if it works or not.

It does, it is very picky and not very good for large scale. But it it does work.
