Creative Commons Image Search Add-on (GSuite)

This was a project done for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2019

The idea was to integrate Creative Common’s image search engine into GSuite products. The goal was to make the add-on as easy and seamless as the integrated Google Image Search, but with CC/CC0 images only.

Naturally, it has more fine grained options for searching by specific licence type and it automatically creates attribution text so the user doesn’t forget.

The side-pane is written in vanilla HTML/CSS/JavaScript and the code that interacts with the Slides app uses “Google App Script” which is also JavaScript but Google hosts and runs the code along with the app that it targets (Slides/Sheets/Docs). It also provides OAuth and APIs for the GSuite apps.
