If you've ever tried setting up django-nonrel for Google App Engine, then you realize that it can be a pain. Multiple archives to download, long directories to rename, trying to figure what goes where, and the extreme tediousness of setting up multiple symbolic links...
This program will automate the process of installing Django-nonrel for GAE.
You will need to run it on the command line with the argument of your desired django-nonrel branch. The available arguments are:
--master to install django-nonrel 1.3 master(This option will be removed in future releases.)
- --dev13 to install django-nonrel 1.3 development
- --dev14 to install django-nonrel 1.4 development
- --dev15 to install django-nonrel 1.5 development
- --clean to erase the current install
The installer should be run in the directory where it exists. Here is an example of how to install 1.5 development in a terminal
$ python dj_nonrel_install.py --dev15
Installing 1.3 development in a terminal
$ python dj_nonrel_install.py --dev13
The folder "django-nonrel" will be created, and all files will be downloaded/installed within the folder for use with Google App Engine. After it's finished, just move/rename the directory to where ever you want the permanent location to be.
Speed up creation of your development environment and get on to making awesome django apps! Any improvement suggestions or submissions are very welcome. This is tested on Linux, and will likely work on similar systems.

There will be no more updates of this installer as I no longer work with django-nonrel. You are free to take the code and continue work/updates on this project. Email me, or Leave a comment in the section below with a link to where others can find your work.
