The Engine exposes a fully-integrated development environment.
Google App Engine makes it easy to design scalable applications that grow from one to millions of users without infrastructure headaches.
It allows programmers to create Python web apps that interact with the App Engine web server using the CGI protocol.
The Python SDK includes tools for testing application, uploading application files, managing datastore indexes, downloading log data, and uploading large amounts of data to the datastore.
App Engine includes a simple web application framework, called webapp, to make it easy to get started. For larger applications, mature third-party frameworks, such as Django, work well with App Engine.
