Google App Engine Standard and Pyramid¶
It is possible to run a Pyramid application on Google App Engine. This tutorial is written in terms of using the command line on a UNIX system. It should be possible to perform similar actions on a Windows system. This tutorial also assumes you've already installed and created a Pyramid application, and that you have a Google App Engine account.
First we'll need to create a few files so that App Engine can communicate with our project properly.
Create the files with content as follows.
Pyramid waitress pyramid_debugtoolbar pyramid_chameleon
from pyramid.paster import get_app, setup_logging ini_path = 'production.ini' setup_logging(ini_path) application = get_app(ini_path, 'main')
from google.appengine.ext import vendor vendor.add('lib')
1application: application-id 2version: version 3runtime: python27 4api_version: 1 5threadsafe: false 6 7handlers: 8- url: /static 9 static_dir: pyramid_project/static 10- url: /.* 11 script: main.application
Configure this file with the following values:
Replace "application-id" with your App Engine application's ID.
Replace "version" with the version you want to deploy.
Replace "pyramid_project" in the definition for
static_dirwith the parent directory name of your static assets. If your static assets are in the root directory, you can just put "static".
For more details about
app.yaml, see app.yaml Reference.
$ pip install -t lib -r requirements.txt
At this point you should have everything you need to run your Pyramid application locally using
dev_appserver. Assuming you have appengine in your
$ dev_appserver.py app.yaml
And voilà! You should have a perfectly-running Pyramid application via Google App Engine on your local machine.
If you've successfully launched your application locally, deploy with a single command.
$ appcfg.py update app.yaml
Your Pyramid application is now live to the world! You can access it by navigating to your domain name, by "<applicationid>.appspot.com", or if you've specified a version outside of your default then it would be "<version-dot-applicationid>.appspot.com".
