Part of Google’s reward for the perpetual servitude of their employees is the ability for them to use up to 20% of their time to make cool stuff. John Skidgel, John Grabowski and Brett Slatkin did just that by creating Google App Engine Launcher for OS X.

Google App Engine is a service created by Google which makes it possible to run your web applications on Google’s infrastructure, instantly making them highly scalable. The best part is that there are no servers to maintain, plus Google throws a bit of storage and bandwidth in for free. You just upload your application, and it’s ready to serve your users.

Google App Engine Launcher for Mac OS X manages the list of App Engine applications you maintain and streamlines the run / browse / deploy / debug operations. It has full drag & drop integration with your editor of choice, quick links to the local developer console and live app dashboard.
