Subject Re: Cassandra with Web2Py
Date Sun, 14 Nov 2010 22:50:46 GMT

I noticed that web2py supports using Google App Engine.  Since GAE's data
model is close to Cassandra's, it might not be too hard to add similar
support.  I'm the current maintainer for pycassa, so if you're interested in
adding Cassandra support to web2py, let me know and maybe we can work on it
