Welcome to django-rocket-engine, Django on AppEngine project documentation.

Project is a helper library with main goal to help setup “correct” (in subjective meaning) Django development environment for Google AppEngine services.


  • basic support for pip style requirements,
  • support for virtualenv environments,
  • pre/post deployment hooks,
  • seamless BlobStorage backend.

The project is still in an experimental stage, being more like prof-of-concept. Source code can be found on github.

This project was inspired by the work of Waldemar Kornewald and Thomas Wanschik from All Buttons Pressed, some ideas where moved from djangoappengine project.
