Hi people

look what some people are able to do with it http://barbound.appspot.com/
is there a way to I don't know have a module that works with google app engine and drupal?

No. Google app engine is run under python but maybe in the future they will run php.

Gotta love python! If it weren't for php's wider install base on web hosts I'd wish drupal was drupy (Drupal but in python, which I just googled and found out actually exists). I have to imagine you could create a web service using google app engine (in python) and have drupal consume that web service somehow.

Well, I chatted with the drupy coder on IRC.. ... he's shutting down the project due to lack of time.

However, there is a PHP runtime coded in Java and runs on a Java server. See projectzero.org. My idea is to try to get projectzero running on Google App engine, and then install drupal on that. A very daunting task. Maybe I'll try it out...

You might want to check out http://www.caucho.com/resin-3.0/quercus/ which runs on Googles App Engine. You still have the problem of database compatibility in "GQL", and the App Engines lack of SQL JOIN abilities to fight though.

At the time of me writing this, PHP hosting on GAE is available if you get your app whitelisted. See this article for more: http://blog.boombatower.com/drupal-google-app-engine

I was just reading through the up coming Google Cloud presentation and there was an article at the bottom about running Drupal on Google Cloud with their php app engine.
