Can Google Apps Script read the contents of a public folder?

If there's a folder on someone's Drive with sharing set so anyone with the link can view it, can a Google Apps Script see its contents? That is:


will show me the contents of a folder on my (or the user's) Drive. But is there a similar method for viewing files in a publicly shared folder? Thanks.


If by "public folder" you mean "a folder in another user's Google Drive that has been shared as public", then the answer is yes.

Nothing special - just use the ID of the folder as you would your own. There are some methods that you will not be able to use, for example Document.getOwner() will complain about permissions.
