P1tr on Google AppEngine

Registered by Michael Otteneder on 2008-04-09

Some of you probably heard about google's AppEngine: http://code.google.com/appengine/
As you may know it features python. So I wondered If we could put P1tr on it. I read the FAQ and I was disappointed. The AppEngine Python enviroment is a restricted sandbox which does not allow you to write to the filesystem or to create sockets. While it would be pretty simple to use DataStorage instead of the filesystem. But twisted wont work without sockets. Maybe the twisted guys will find a way around this until then this Blueprint is likely to be impossible to implement. Even though I can think of writing some simple HTTP->IRC proxy.

Whiteboard

This is a pretty cool idea, and with such a feature P1tr would be a rarity. But I think it shouldn't be part of 0.1 yet.
