Google App Engine for WordPress

Optimize your WordPress installation for the Google App Engine platform.


  • Use a default 30 second timeout for URLFetch requests.
  • Use auto loading for GAE SDK now that it is available.
  • Use CloudStorageTools::getPublicUrl() for Cloud Storage URLs so that they work correctly on the development server.
  • Add support for serving uploaded media files over HTTPs.


  • Add support for importing a WDX file from Google Cloud Storage into the site.
  • Provide a URL Fetch based HTTP client, which is optimized for the App Engine environment. This also corrects issues caused by fsockopen only being available to paid application in the production environment.
  • Fix bug detecting if the Cloud Storage bucket is writable during plugin setup.


  • Use CloudStorageTools::getPublicUrl in the dev environment so PIL is not a requirement.
  • Fix Readme file to highlight that the plugin is for Google App Engine only.
  • Work around is_writable check in the development environment.


  • Fix uploads issue on the development server where PyCrypto is not available.
  • include 'max_bytes_per_blob' in createUploadUrl options only if wp_max_upload_size() is a positive int
  • Remove writable bucket check work around is this is now natively supported.
