GUI that fetches links for download externaly

23 Apr 2018, 11:24

I'm trying to create a gui with checklinks for the purpose of downloading multiple apps to my choice.
While I got that part figured out and it's pretty simple to get it done with AutoGUI, I am wondering if I could make make the download links being fetched from an doc stored on cloud (gdrive) everytime the gui is started. In this way if I actualize an app the gdrive link id will change and I wouldn't like to actualize the code of the GUI everytime a change for download link is needed.
Thoughts on this?

Would FileRead work for this?

As I said, I want the links for downloads to be stored externaly so I don't have to modify the GUI ahk code every time I replace one app version with a newer one (gdrive links have IDs that change if the something is deleted and uploaded again).
For convenience I would like the"download links" file to be read directly from cloud(gdrive) rather than have it downloaded locally, but if that isn't possible I'm ok with downloading it to a local location before it is being read.

if the drive link is made public (anyone with the address can see it) then yes, you could have ahk get the data
