Python Flask Skeleton for Google App Engine
A skeleton for building Python applications on Google App Engine with the Flask micro framework.
See our other Google Cloud Platform github repos for sample applications and scaffolding for other python frameworks and use cases.
Clone this repo with
git clone https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/appengine-flask-skeleton.git
Install dependencies in the project's lib directory. Note: App Engine can only import libraries from inside your project directory.
cd appengine-flask-skeleton pip install -r requirements.txt -t lib
Run this project locally from the command line:
Visit the application http://localhost:8080
See the development server documentation for options when running dev_appserver.
To deploy the application:
Use the Admin Console to create a project/app id. (App id and project id are identical)
appcfg.py update -A <your-project-id> -V v1 .
If this isn't your first deployment, you will need to set the new version as the default version with
appcfg.py set_default_version -V v1 -A <your-project-id>
Congratulations! Your application is now live at your-app-id.appspot.com

See the Third party libraries page for libraries that are already included in the SDK. To include SDK libraries, add them in your app.yaml file. Other than libraries included in the SDK, only pure python libraries may be added to an App Engine project.
