Project Description

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


  • collects project dependencies symlinking needed modules and packages and configuring App Engine environment
  • configures DATABASE setting parsing connection strings similar to those on Heroku


The full documentation is at


Install appengine-toolkit:

pip install django-appengine-toolkit

Add it to the installed apps:

    # ...

To automatically configure database settings reading connection string from the DATABASE_URL enviroment var:

import appengine_toolkit
    'default': appengine_toolkit.config(),

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

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

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

    '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 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 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


0.1.0 (2013-11-30)
