Recently, I have participated in Google cloud developer contest 2013 , where we need to develop a web application using any of the supported technologies like PHP, Python, etc. Moreover, Google provides another option to develop an HTML5 application and deploy it into Google App Engine. I will be penning down my HTML based web application development for Google Cloud Platform in a series of blog posts.
I have started my journey from setting up my development environment consists of Visual Studio 2012 with jQuery libraries. I have developed my partially cooked web application using the above setup. Now I need to deploy the same to Google App Engine to test the other integration features. Here, I came to know that, there is no direct deployment option for HTML5 application in Google Cloud platform.
Lesson 1: No direct HTML5 web application deployment supported in Google Cloud Platform
Setting up Python for Google App Engine hosting
- Download and install Python from http://www.python.org/getit/
- Download and install the Google App Engine SDK for Python from https://developers.google.com/appengine/downloads#Google_App_Engine_SDK_for_Python
Our development environment is ready with all required software. Let us create our Google Cloud Platform project and deploy the application to cloud, which will be discussed in next blog post.
