Overview
Quickly list all the files of a Google Drive folder in a spreadsheet, and automatically display it in an Awesome Table view.
Files Cabinet by Awesome Table is an add-on that helps you list a Google Drive folder. It explores every child folder and lists every file that can be found. After giving you a quick count of all the folders and all the files, you get a list of the files that are ready to be displayed in a catalog created with Awesome Table.

SAVE METADATA

You can also add some meta-data on the sheet (by adding a column at the end of the sheet). Files Cabinet will match entries and keep the data you entered. It can be very useful if: 
- You're working with collaborators on a folder and want to keep track of what file is completed, and what has to be finished
- You're displaying an album of your holidays, and want to know who's on the pictures: simply add a "People" column at the end of the sheet, and fill it with the names of people appearing on the pictures. After updating the list, the column will still match the entries.
- You're displaying your music library, stored in Google Drive, and want to give a rating to every track or to display the cover of the album. Update the list, these information will remain on the sheet and in the Awesome Table view.

DISPLAY YOUR FILES IN A CATALOG WITH AWESOME TABLE

Files Cabinet automatically creates an Awesome Table view that uses a template and a custom css (example here: https://goo.gl/hyqYRi). But if you're into customization, just give a quick look at the Awesome Table documentation (https://goo.gl/uf6v7a) and set your imagination free!

BUILT TO BE ROBUST

Even if you have a huge Google Drive, Files Cabinet will find its way. It can list thousands of files and is only limited to the size of the spreadsheet (two million cells) - which means up to 100 000 files! Just leave the sidebar open and wait for the spreadsheet to be filled. If you have a bigger Drive, and wish to list it, feel free to contact us.

Files Cabinet does not keep neither use any of your data after they were listed.

would've liked a whole folder path. if you're already listing everything, why not give all the information about it?

Great idea, perfect embodiment. For some reason, the "Create a new sheet for a list of files" mode does not work for me. Exporting to an existing worksheet works fine. Thanks!

Would be better if it posted incremental results into the sheet. I left it running overnight on a large folder, and 18 hours later it was saying that it had scanned 35,000 folders, but still hadn't posted a single row in the table. I get that large tasks take time, but there's no reason it couldn't flush its buffer every 10000 rows or something.

Needed to get the links to 600+ sheets in a shared Drive folder. This add-on did the trick! I added the shared folder to my drive, ran the add-on, and then concatenated the first part of the shared url to the ID column that the add-on produced from the folder in my drive and voila: URLs to the sheets in the shared folder!

It only lists folders in My Drive, not the ones synced to my devices. Since the device files are the vast majority of my work, it's really quite useless.
