    For those of us who don’t want to run a Google JavaScript application to get this content:

    Hey GAM users/developers,

    I wanted to quickly announce an open source, 2-clause BSDL project I’ve started that uses GAM to help migrate an organization away from Google.

    I’m developing the project on HardenedBSD, though HardenedBSD is not a hard requirement. It’s simply the OS I use.

    I’m planning on supporting at least email and Drive. I’m slowly turning the code from Proof-of-Concept (PoC) to production-quality and as such I haven’t really documented much of anything. Once I’ve solidified email support, I plan to document everything.

    Hopefully this tool is useful for someone else. I suck at naming things, so I chose the rather bland name of “migrationator”. The link to the project is just above my email signature below.

    $ bin/migrate.zsh userlist -o /tmp/userlist.csv
    $ bin/migrate.zsh email -i /tmp/userlist.csv -o /vault/migrations

    Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

      Would love to read it, but it requires a Google login.

        Turns out it all was an elaborate trolling scheme…

          Haha. I’m pretty sure you’re joking, but just in case:

          My employer (G2, Inc) was acquired by Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII). G2 uses G Suite while HII uses self-hosted Exchange. I’m tasked with migrating the entirety of G2 away from all Google services to HII’s self-hosted versions. This poorly-named tool is what’s coming out of that work.

        As a Linux w/ Bash user the dependency on zsh is a little annoying but I get it. Hope this becomes something mature and stable.

          I have blocked Google (and also Facebook, Microsoft and some others) domains using my own DNS server, so I can not read your article published at groups.google.com. Is that article still relevant for me?

            Hey, if you want to migrate to Office 365 from GSuite, my company SkyKick offers that: https://www.skykick.com/migrate/google-apps-to-office-365/

              Extremely relevant and he disclosed his employment. Why the downvotes?
