Google AppEngine Python SDK


Cloud development

The Python language version of the Google App Engine SDK enables developers to build Python web applications that can be hosted on Google's App Engine platform, on the same scalable infrastructure that power Google's own applications. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale.
