google-app-engine Getting started with google-app-engine Setup


Google AppEngine (GAE) is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) that provides the ability to deploy applications at "Google Scale". It is one of the many services on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Developers can integrate other services such as Google Cloud Storage (GCS) and Google Cloud SQL on GCP easily. Developers can write a set of code that runs locally and can easily be deployed on Google Cloud Platform.

A birds eye view of getting started with AppEngine includes the following:

  • Install the SDK for your preferred language (Go, Python, Java, PHP, Node.js(in Beta))
  • Use the SDK to scaffold an application & develop locally
  • Deploy the same code that runs locally, to a scalable runtime environment

The AppEngine SDK can also be installed using the Google Cloud SDK:
