Running Yahoo! Pipes on Google App Engine

Yahoo! Pipes is an excellent tool for processing data. It provides a visual way to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web. It's very much like plumbing with data and is a great metaphor.

Run a pipe2py-generated pipe on Google App Engine

Once you've used pipe2py to convert your Yahoo! Pipe into a local Python module, you can then host it as your own Google App Engine application. You just need a bit of boilerplate to handle the parameters and output formatting. I've created a sample project containing this boilerplate here: https://github.com/ggaughan/testpipe. You'll need to include a copy of pipe2py, so it can find the modules it needs, and replace the demo pipeline references with your own. See the README for details.
