I'm trying to integrate Google Drive API with my WordPress site as I want to list folders by their names not their IDs, I've found this link https://developers.google.com/drive/api/v3/quickstart/php that describes how to work with the API using PHP, I uploaded google-api-php-client-2.4.1 folder to my root directory where wp-config.php file is, and used "Code Snippets" plugin to embed the code in quickstart.php and changed the corresponding parts of linking to autoload.php file here

require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

if (php_sapi_name() != 'cli') {
    throw new Exception('This application must be run on the command line.');

And uploaded the credentials.json file in place as the link says, however I'm getting the error that it must run on the command line and I can't figure my way out as I've never used the command line with WordPress before, sorry if I'm a little bit noobish in my question but I'm trying to figure a way out where I can embed/integrate the Google Client API correctly with my WordPress in order to use it in my PHP snippets
