Fork information

This project was forked to modernize the google api codebase a little bit. The following changes have been made:

  • Gotted rid of all require() statements. An autoloader is now required
  • Renamed all classes. Everything is now in a GoogleApi namespace.
  • Added composer package information (todo)
  • Gotted rid of automatically executing code.

The existing documentation applies, just keep in mind that instead of class like apiHttpRequest, you must now use \GoogleApi\Io\HttpRequest.
