Chromium API Keys

When you build Chromium yourself, or download a Chromium nightly-build, you need to provide API-key, a secret-phrase and a client-id,
running Chromium without either of those three phrases will seriously compromise Chromium’s functionality.

The is a sort of “inner-Google” page on how to generate, and use the API-Keys needed to make Chromium a properly, fully functional Chrome-compatible browser (including Syncing your bookmarks and other stuff..)

There is an issue, however, with that page ( which has not been-updated for a while, especially on the names of the API-services, one, needs to enable in-order to use Chromium in a fully functional mode,


I’ve gathered those services (including a direct link for you to use in-order to activate it)
the following list (Google API-console) is ordered as:

– Name.
– Description.
– URL.

the list of API-services is sorted (A,B,C..) by the Name of the API-service.

Unix Snippet – Get File’s “Touch Date-Format” One-Liner

Pipelining the modification date from stat into an inline-date-phrase using the date --date="@... directive (using read to locate the pipeline’s output in the middle of the date-phrase),
And you’ve got yourself a nice little converter, which you can customise, to use *any* date-format,
I’ve using the Universal Time Coordinated standard.

file name:          my_file.txt
unix time-format:   1458036575     (Asia/Jerusalem)
touch time-format:  201603151009   (UTC)
stat --format=%Y "my_file.txt" | { read -r tmp_date; date --utc --date="@$tmp_date" "+%C%y%m%d%H%M"; }

You can easily use the touch-date-format with touch command using the following directive:
touch -t 201603151009 --time=mtime my_file.txt;
but make sure first you set the local-timezone to same timezone it was generated on.
TZ=UTC will help you do that,
TZ=UTC; touch -t 201603151009 --time=mtime my_file.txt; will apply it to the current line.
and you can also make sure of it is done right by using:
export TZ=UTC at the start of the script, and at the end of it just re-run
export TZ=Asia/Jerusalem (or whatever your TimeZone is) to come-back to your TimeZone,
