iUI on Google App Engine Using Gaelyk

Since Google Code project hosting doesn't provide web hosting other than wiki pages, iUI has been using SVN to host the sample applications, like the music sample.  The problem is that neither of these solutions allows PHP or any other server-side solution to run properly (e.g. Search or Stats in the music sample)

I wanted a free hosting solution for the project and also am a big fan of the Groovy programming language (my Java background showing)  So, I thought I'd try using Gaelyk on Google App Engine.  I first pushed a test version several months ago, but I've just pushed a new version to iui-js.appspot.com and also checked in my work-in-progress to revision control.

I've also created a wiki page called iUI on Google App Engine.  The wiki page has (hastily-written) draft instructions on "How I Did It" -- as well as a to do list.  Please let me know if you have any suggestions on the to  do list.

  1. Hey Sean,

    Firstly, thanks for the detailed comment and great advice on the post over on my blog.

    Secondly, Great work on the the iUI samples on AppEngine. When I got started with AppEngine I was tossing up between going with Python or Java (but specifically Groovy - I agree it's a great language). When it all came down to it I opted for python primarily based on the strength of Django as a web application framework.

    If Grails had been ready to go, or I had known about Gaelyk at that time I might have gone the other way.

    When I get a chance, I'll check out iUI and get a feel for it.

    Thanks again,
