grunt-appengine Build Status

Grunt task for running and managing App Engine

Not actively maintained anymore. Should work well anyway. Still accepting PRs.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-appengine --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


Appengine task

Run this task with the grunt appengine command.
