;;;; Utility functions for running a Google App Engine application from the REPL.
;;;; This currently works best with compojure.
;;;; To use it just do the following:
;;;; 1) Define your routes for compojure.
;;;; (defroutes app
;;;; (GET "/" ....))
;;;; 2) Define a Google App Engine Server.
;;;; (defgaeserver app-server app)
;;;; 3) Start the server.
;;;; (start-gae-server app-server)
;;;; This setup here uses some conventions.
;;;; - The application will have its working directory based in "/tmp". So if you're
;;;; looking for the generated files like datastore-indexes-auto.xml have a look in
;;;; /tmp/WEB-INF/appengine-generated/.
;;;; - Static files are served from src/web. The subdirectories considered are
;;;; /css, /js, /img, /static.
;;;; Unit testing App Engine.
;;;; This module also provides a deftest-appengine macro that helps you to write unit testing
;;;; code that needs the appengine services.
;;;; Just use it like the regular (deftest ...) macro. It will setup the services before running
;;;; the body of the macro. Every test gets a seperate working directory in /tmp/{name-of-the-test}.
