Issue #255 resolved

Google appengine (GAE) support

Thomas Waldmann
repo owner created an issue

At EuroPython 2012, Guido van Rossum has done some work to improve moin2 and whoosh to run on GAE, see there:!topic/whoosh/8zJ2IGoSvd8

TODO: Look at GAE and how to develop for it. Create a branch for working on it until it is developed/stable/clean enough to get merged into main branch. Look at Guido's patch and find out why each change was needed. Having a (current) patch on codereview to discuss it with Guido (and other interested devs) would help a lot. Make search backend configurable, do not use whoosh's convenience functions that are hardcoded to use local fs storage for index. * Write documentation about it for wiki admins.

    note: afaics we currently do not import MoinMoin.util.filesys any more, so there shouldn't be an issue with accessing os.rmdir / os.mkdir in this module.
