Gmail.js - JavaScript API for Gmail

TL;DR Summary

  • Lots of api methods to work with gmail. Useful for chrome extensions
  • Most of them dont take arguments, they work on what is currently visible on the screen
  • I still need to add implementation for chrome extension, works by injecting js for now
  • Main method is gmail.observe.on('lots_of_actions_here', callback())
  • Click on a method link to view more detailed docs
