A collection of libraries for making Google App Engine development easier.

Project Description

Agar is a set of utilities for Google App Engine python, , created as part of the Substrate Project.


Agar requires the Google App Engine SDK, webapp2, webapp2_extras, pytz, restler, and basin. Versions of these (except the Google App Engine SDK) are located in the lib directory.


To install Agar, download the source and add the agar directory to your Google App Engine project. It must be on your path.


Agar comes with a set of tests. Running Agar’s tests requires unittest2 and WebTest (included in the lib directory). To run them, execute:

$ ./


Google App Engine now includes testbed to make local unit testing easier. This obsoletes the now-unsupported GAE TestBed library. However, it had several useful helper functions, many of which have been re-implemented in Agar. To use them, you must use unittest2 and inherit from agar.tests.BaseTest or agar.tests.WebTest.


Agar is licensed under the MIT License. See LICENSE.txt for details.


To contribute to the Agar project, fork the repository, make your changes, and submit a pull request.
