I’m pleased to announce the release of Gaelyk, a lightweight Groovy
toolkit for Google App Engine:
Gaelyk builds upon the Groovy templates and Groovlets, adding some
additional hooks into Google App Engine SDK APIs thanks to new
variables in the binding and with a Groovy category.
Gaelyk is mainly intended for small apps, as Grails is a better fit
for bigger projects, but for quick little apps where you don’t need
the full power and conventions of Grails, Gaelyk can be used.
You can learn more about Gaelyk by visiting the website, and reading
the tutorial: http://gaelyk.appspot.com/tutorial/

I looked at it and straight-away thought: “At last. Something for the PHP/GCI people!”
Gaelyk offers little or no ceremony and little or no scary sophistication. Plain Good Stuff with the extra cachet of Google AppEngine thrown in for good measure.
Hopefully, it will be a great “gateway drug” to get people into Grails.
This is really delivering on the potential of Groovy!
Congratulations, Guillaume and Marcel.
