Got my invite to try out Google App Engine.
Logged in and downloaded version 1.0.1.
But then noted I also had to update python. Downloaded and installed 2.5.2.
Then installed the App Engine.
Now to do some quick coding, an online randomish numbers generator.
import random print 'Content-Type: text/html' print '' print '' print '<a href=https://boldlentil.wordpress.com target="_blank">' print '<b>Randomish Numbers</b>' print '</a><p>' stop = 25 i = 1 while i <= stop: print random.random() print '<br>' i = i + 1
Wrote this to tools/app-engine/boldlentil/1/boldlentil.py. Also wrote a simple app.yaml using the helloworld example. From /usr/local/google_appengine can then run this simple test app using:
You upload python and they get Content. I guess randomish numbers are content.
So next up creating an application Bold Lentil and using appcfg.py to upload the application.
./appcfg.py update /Users/boldlentil/tools/app-engine/boldlentil/1
Finally use gmail email and login to complete the upload.
Now to test it here.
It worked – and testing it only used 14.95 of my 199608.00 Gigacycles. Slick!
