A CLI App to Search Your Google Drive Files

How to Use


To search for files in your Google Drive, this app needs to get your permission to access them.

After installation, run godri authorize to grant your permission. You only need to do this step once.

Your tokens will be stored in $HOME/.config/congigstore/godri.json and has the following parameters:

    "tokens": {
        "access_token": "XXXXXXXXXX",
        "refresh_token": "XXXXXXXXXX",
        "scope": "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.metadata.readonly",
        "token_type": "Bearer",
        "expiry_date": 1234567890
    "user": {
        "displayName": "Jane Doe",
        "emailAddress": "jane.doe@me.net"

Once you've authorized with Godri, you can start searching for your Google Drive files with godri search <keyword> [options].

The keyword is compulsory. If you want to use multi-word, please wrap them in single quote, like so: godri search 'finance tracker'.

Accepted options are:

  • --file-type, -f: Specify the file types. Accepted formats are sheets, docs, forms and slides.
  • --owned, -o: Restrict the search results to files that you owned only.
  • --name-only, -n: Restrict the search range to files whose only file names match your provided keyword.
