This library is no longer supported and probably should not be used. To be honest, we had to move off AppEngine after Google jacked up the price.

Bootstrap a Google App Engine project with Django and other goodies.

Used by Los Angeles Times websites like crime.latimes.com, documents.latimes.com, laccd.latimes.com and spreadsheets.latimes.com.

Beware. This software is in beta testing and hasn’t been used much. But don’t let that stop you! Please try it and tell me what sucks.

Features

Requirements

Installation

01. Create a virtualenv to operate in

I’m going to call this test project ‘hello-appengine’

$ virtualenv --no-site-packages hello-appengine
$ cd hello-appengine
$ . bin/activate

02. Install the app

$ pip install latimes-appengine-template

03. Create your project

From the shell, enter:

$ startappengineproject hello-appengine

04. Fire up the Django runserver

$ cd project
$ python2.5 manage.py runserver

The check it out at http://localhost:8000. You should see this.

If that fails…

I’m trying to get this thing to work via pip, but if that fails you can instead:

  1. Download this repo.
  2. Copy the appengine_template to wherever you want your project folder to be
  3. Rename the google_appengine subdirectory to .google_appengine
  4. Put your app_id into the app.yaml file

And that’ll pretty much do it.
