Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Structuring the index, part of Google App Engine Essential Training.
- Indexes are a critical aspect…of any database solution.…Index data is faster to search, sort, and query.…Cloud Datastore has a robust,…albeit somewhat unconventional,…approach to indexes that we'll explore in this lesson,…which is essentially a continuation of the previous one,…so make sure you've covered that material.…Now, as you might recall,…when we first launched the Guestbook app,…there were only two files in the folder:…app.yaml and guestbook.py.…
Then, after submitting an entry or two,…we checked again, and there were three.…The third file is index.yaml.…Let's take a look at that file itself in the code editor.…As you can see, it's marked as autogenerated.…As a comment says, you can manually…set up your indexes by removing that line.…I'd recommend that you leave the index creation…to App Engine for the the time being,…until you gain more expertise…in what's required and best.…As for the index itself,…it's set up as a Datastore kind entity, labeled Greeting.…
It does rely on ancestors…and has two specific properties:…
