Better project template for Google App Engine
I've been playing around with Google App Engine
quite a bit lately. Whenever I'd create a new project, I'd start by copying and pasting a folder called "new_project_template" which is included in the software developers kit. The template contains a bare-minimum hello world script. As I made more and more apps, I realized that I always added the same things to this folder before writing the actual "guts" of the code.
I always had to fix the indents, add some basic
statements, and include my favorite web scraping library, Beautiful Soup
. So I created a template of my own and named it "better_project_template" (creative? I know). The folder has the Beautiful Soup module, base.html and index.html templates, as well as some useful shortcuts
added to the main.py file. Anyone interested can download
this folder here for their own use.
