On Linux, it seems that appcfg.py saves credentials when I use it to upload a new version of my application. However, this doesn't seem to happen OSX, and the password is asked every time.
On Linux, I have local installation. On OSX, I have used binary installer.
Is it possible to do something for OSX, so that it would save me the effort of retyping password all the time?
More info: Found zero sited .appcfg_cookies in my home folder. Obviously it is not saving credentials there, though trying.
You can use the OAuth 2.0 feature of
appcfg to avoid the need to enter your login and password. It is documented for Java, Python and Go.
Instead of using your login and password to authenticate you, you will proceed once through an OAuth 2.0 grant flow in your web browser. The results of that grant will be cached for future pushes.
To use this feature, just add one option to your
--oauth2. For Java, it looks like this:
$ appcfg.sh --oauth2 update ./web
1) Updating Google Appengine to version 1.4.2 via launcher (I might have hit 1.4.x bug?)
2) Deleting cookie file
it looks like cookie file started working again.
It should have content like:
# Netscape HTTP Cookie File # http://www.netscape.com/newsref/std/cookie_spec.html # This is a generated file! Do not edit. appengine.google.com FALSE....
Download the launcher for OSX, it allows to store the credentials in the OS Keychain.
Check out the Python module keyring - http://bitbucket.org/kang/python-keyring-lib
Supports Linux (Gnome,KDE), Win32 and OSX keychain backends. Worked great for me.
