(Node.js) OAuth2 for a GMail using a JSON Service Account Key

Demonstrates how get an OAuth2 access token for GMail (Google Service Account) using a JSON private key.

After the access token is obtained, it may be used to send email. When the access token expires, a new access token needs to be obtained (using this same procedure).

Note: This is for OAuth2 using Google Service account keys.
