i put in a little appendix section of our Django book on how to run
Django apps on App Engine, and it uses the helper. however, i wasn't
it wasn't in time to discover a similar project which is more similar
to Django than the helper, called the App Engine Patch:


this project was newer, and you can find on their web page towards the
bottom, some information that differentiates the 2 projects. however,
i say "was" because the patch is no longer actively being worked on in
favor of yet another project -- django-nonrel -- that has a more
ambitious goal: running Django apps natively on App Engine:


here is a specific blogpost about pure Django on App Engine:

the patch maintainers also recommend looking at Kay as an alternative.
