Read data from Google Spreadsheet in Talend

Hello Team,
I want to use Google Spreadsheet as a source in my Talend Job.
So, how to connect and read the data from Google Spreadsheet?
I found one custom component "tGSpreadsheetInput", I downloaded and tried to install it but it is not appearing under Pallete. Seems to be the compatibility issue, I am using 5.5 version.
If direct component is not available then, can we download the google spreadsheet in the form of excel and then I can use excel as source. Please tell me how to establish the connection to google drive and download the spreadsheet?

Hi,
Could you please refer to a related forum:http://community.talend.com:80/t5/Design-and-Development/tGoogleDriveGet-can-t-download-Google-Sprea... to see if you can download a CSV of the google spreadsheet using tFileFetch?

Let us know if it is Ok with you.
Best regards
Sabrina

So, is it not possible to directly connect to the Google Spreadsheet and use it as source to fetch the data in the job?

Well it depends VinT. How is your Java? This can be done using the APIs provided by Google. You will just need to implement them yourself. Check out https://developers.google.com/sheets/
