gaenv - Command line utility for managing appengine thirdparty packages

NOTE: I have discontinued this project and started using the official vendoring from their docs at


Simply run the following:

$ python install

or PyPi:

$ pip install gaenv

Example Usage

Note that this not run "pip install -r requirements.txt" so you'll have to run it manually first before running this:

Create a requirements.txt and put all requirements then run
$ gaenv
For more
$ gaenv -h
or with python extracted source
$ python gaenv-0.x.x/gaenv -h

This will create symbolic links from your default python version packages to the current directory that you execute it on. By default it will create gaenv_lib folder with all packages in your requirements.txt and will ask you if you want this utility to insert the import statement that updates your sys.path, or you can just do it manually.
