Flask extension that serves static file handlers in Google App Engine app.yaml files

Project description

flask-gae-static unit tests badge

Flask extension for Google App Engine that serves static file handlers from app.yaml files.

Inspired by Andreas H. Kelch's app_server project.

License: This project is placed in the public domain. You may also use it under the CC0 public domain dedication.


Install with pip install flask-gae-static. Use with eg:

from flask import Flask
import flask_gae_static

app = Flask(...)

flask-gae-static also includes a custom URL route converter that supports regular expressions. After calling init_app(), you can use it with regex inside a variable route part, eg:

def handle(letters):

Known issues

  • flask-gae-static currently only overrides Flask's built in static file support if a static handler's URL exactly matches the Flask app's static_url_path. If the static handler URL is a regexp that overlaps with it, Flask's static_url_path handling will still take precedence.


After cloning the repository, set up a local virtualenv with:

python3 -m venv local
source local/bin/activate
pip install -e .

Run tests with:

python -m unittest discover
