Visual UI Editor For Google Apps Script

One of the things that’s still on my to-do list is to get round to playing more with Google Apps script, particularly the ability to create web-hookable services around spreadsheets and generate custom user interfaces to Apps Script powered applications.

I have to pop out now, so know time to play, but I thought it worth a mention… (Martin will probably have a post up about it before long;-)
