I'm still working on the direct download issue with files served by google drive. Firstly, my test file was empty or corrupted so that muddled my trouble shooting. I can indeed download documents from the direct download link. However, I still can't see the file name and extension, nor can I easily read the content disposition of the url with python's urllib tools. I still may need to find a way to parse the data "blob" in order to read the type of file before i let weblogo download it.
