#!/usr/bin/env python -i
A local interactive IPython shell for Google App Engine on Mac OSX.
cd /to/project/folder/with/app.yaml
This script assumes numerous things:
* The path to your GAE SDK install.
* That you run the dev server with the specified datastore path:
e.g src --datastore_path=src/tmp/datastore

location = lambda x: os.path.join(app_root, x)
sys.path.insert(0, app_root)
sys.path.insert(1, '/usr/local/google_appengine')
