My website has a backend which is handled by Google App Engine. In order to develop the backend, I need to be able to run the Google App Engine development server in my development environment. This server is provided by the dev_appserver.py script included with the App Engine SDK.
The server script requires Python 2.7 and runs fine in the Cloud 9 IDE, but I can’t seem to get any requests to pass to it. I use the following command to launch the script:
dev_appserver.py --host $IP --port 8081 --admin_host $IP --admin_port 8082 ./backend/
The script output indicates that it successfully binds to 0.0.0.0:8081 and 0.0.0.0:8082, but I can’t the pages to load when I send it requests.
There isn’t much information on developing in Google App Engine on Cloud 9, so I’m at a loss as to how to fix this problem. Does anyone have any insight or advice as to how to get the development server to work?
