Django Appengine Toolkit

https://badge.fury.io/py/django-appengine-toolkit.png https://travis-ci.org/masci/django-appengine-toolkit.png?branch=master https://pypip.in/d/django-appengine-toolkit/badge.png https://coveralls.io/repos/masci/django-appengine-toolkit/badge.png

Appengine Toolkit pimps Django with some utilities that help deploying projects on Google App Engine with Google Cloud SQL as data backend.

Features

  • collects project dependencies symlinking needed modules and packages and configuring App Engine environment
  • configures DATABASE setting parsing connection strings similar to those on Heroku
  • provides a custom storage for Google Cloud Storage

Documentation

The full documentation is at http://django-appengine-toolkit.rtfd.org.

A tutorial was published on Google Developers Blog

Another how-to upload to cloud storage

AppEngine SDK version supported: 1.9.4

Quickstart

Install appengine-toolkit:

pip install django-appengine-toolkit

Add it to the installed apps:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    # ...
    'appengine_toolkit',
)

To automatically configure database settings by parsing connection string contained in DATABASE_URL enviroment var:

import appengine_toolkit
DATABASES = {
    'default': appengine_toolkit.config(),
}

You can set DATABASE_URL directly in your app.yaml file:

env_variables:
  DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE: 'myapp.settings'
  DATABASE_URL: 'mysql://root@project_id:instance_id/database_name'

To collect project dependencies, first configure Appengine Toolkit specifying the full path pointing to the app.yaml file in your settings.py module:

APPENGINE_TOOLKIT = {
    'APP_YAML': os.path.join(BASE_DIR, '../../', 'app.yaml'),
}

...then run the command collectdeps specifying the requirement file containing the list of packages needed by your project to run:

python manage.py collectdeps -r my_requirements.txt

a folder named libs will be created on your application root (i.e. the same folder where the YAML file resides) containing symlinks needed by App Engine to include dependencies in the production runtime enviroment.

A file appengine_config.py will be created in the same folder and will contain code needed to configure the environment. If you need to customize the module appengine_config tell the command to not overwrite it - the command will then output the code you need to paste inside the module to complete the configuration process

Need to store your media files on Google Cloud Storage? Just add this to your settings:

APPENGINE_TOOLKIT = {
    # ...,
    'BUCKET_NAME': 'your-bucket-name',
}
DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'appengine_toolkit.storage.GoogleCloudStorage'
