Google App Engine with Eclipse and PyDev on Ubuntu

Google App Engine just opened up a slew of possibilities for me. I was looking for some free app hosting for a while just to try out different languages and frameworks. I was not lucky enough to squeeze in through the door when they launched the App Engine, however I did get the access when Google accepted more developers during Google IO.

I fired eclipse and was about to head to pydev when, purely out of habit, I googled to check if anyone had blogged the steps. And indeed, I found this:
Google App Engine & eclipse (PyDev)

Since I am on Ubuntu the only difference worth mentioning was the step to specify the Python Interpreter.
In step 5, instead of
C:\Python25\ python.exe
I selected
/usr/bin/python2.5

Now all that is left it is to let the creative juices flow!
