Download the SDK for App Engine

The preferred tooling for managing your App Engine applications in Python is Google Cloud SDK. Cloud SDK includes a local development server as well as the gcloud command-line tooling for deploying and managing your apps.

Cloud SDK excludes the appcfg command. To continue using that command, see the steps for downloading and installing the original App Engine SDK.

By downloading, you agree to be bound by the Terms that govern use of the SDK for App Engine.
