Instant Press in AppEngine

My original intention is to run Instant Press on AppEngine. I have run into a few road blocks, here is a few

  • Admin login works with localhost: http://localhost:8000/admin/default/site, but it doesn't work with 127.0.0.1 !!
  • Try follow https://bitbucket.org/mulonemartin/instantpress/wiki/Home to install Instant Press won't work, have to use git repository. I have it here if you want to grab it https://github.com/mycguo/instantpress
  • When deployed to AppEngine, it is complaining about the table column named "parent". It has to be changed to something else.

I managed to run Instant Presse locally

Finally, I hit this error in AppEngine and have to give up. Apparently, it is using PIL internally and it is not supported in AppEngine.
