Google App Engine Helper for Django

Since the launch of Google App Engine one of the most common requests has been for better integration with the popular Django framework.

We've been working hard and we've made available a helper that eases the process of developing a Django project to run on Google App Engine.

The helper will initially provide you with:
  • The ability to use most commands
  • A BaseModel class that appears the same as the standard Django Model class.
  • The ability to serialize and deserialize model instances to JSON, YAML and XML.
  • Access to Django's test framework with a test datastore and support for fixtures.
We are releasing the helper under the Apache 2.0 license. We look forward to working with the Django community to add further functionality as time goes on.

You can download the helper from Issues and Feature Requests should be added to the tracker within that project.
