nonrel / app engine (again)

Hi, I saw you answered this question in the past, more than one year ago, but has there been any progress towards nonrel support for Askbot which would enable it to be used with google app engine?

Thank you for all your great work!

If you are willing to help with this, then yes, otherwise I think it is not worth the energy (at least it is not for our team at the moment). Sorry to disappoint.

Does app engine support full text search - preferably not just in English? As of March this year it did not but it was in the works. The lack of full text search in GAE is a showstopper for me.

I looked into app engine more yesterday. It seems that the incentives to use app engine have changed since they increased their pricing in a strange / complicated way. So with that in mind and with no full text search, yes it is a waste of time.

Appengine has fulltext search. I used it and it is really simple to use. But now it is 2013 :-)
