Quick start python template for Google App Engine
You'll need to do several things before your first deploy.
First: open up app.yaml and replace 'app' with your own app name
Second: remember to update the version line, trust me, it'll be helpful when you deploy. Make sure to mention/tag the git log with the deployed version.
Third: make sure to version your local datastore. I can not think of any reason not to do this. Depending on what platform you use, you will need to add these flags when your app starts in the development console.
Fourth: your models live in usermodels.py
Fifth: if you want to use some other Django template, change these lines in main.py
os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = 'settings'
