Using Google App Engine

Nov15'2008: getting started

  • Google App Engine supports any framework written in pure Python that speaks CGI (and any WSGI-compliant framework using a CGI adaptor), including Django, CherryPy, PyLons, and WebPy. You can bundle a framework of your choosing with your application code by copying its code into your application directory. App Engine includes a simple web application framework of its own, called webapp. (Robaccia?)
