My code is pulling JSON data from a web service I wrote. That JSON data is then loaded into a python dictionary. Things works fabulously when I debug in my local console running an internal web server provided by the App Engine SDK. But when I upload the application to Goole CLoud Engine, things break. This is a snippet of my code
states=dict() population_data="" url="http://something.com/json" try: response=urllib2.urlopen(url) states=json.load(response,"utf-8") except Exception as ex: self.response.write("Google says: %s"%(ex.message)) self.response.write("Try refreshing the page (again)") SystemExit(0)
I have all the states abbreviation as keys. when I try to access the value of the dictionary directly using square brackets, like
Google App Engine complains about KeyError exception. However if I try iterating through the key using a for loop, like
for each_state in states: self.response.write(states[each_state])
it works flawlessly in the App Engine. I also found out that the following also works perfectly
The only thing I cannot do is accessing the dictionary using square brackets. That baffles me. If you know what’s up with that, drop me a line.
