Package gae provides a fakable wrapped interface for the appengine SDK's APIs. This means that it's possible to mock all of the supported appengine APIs for testing (or potentially implement a different backend for them).

gae currently provides interfaces for:

* Datastore
* Memcache
* TaskQueue
* GlobalInfo (e.g. Namespace, AppID, etc.)

A package which implements the gae is expected to provide the following:

  * A package function `Enable(c context.Context, ...) context.Context`
    This function is expected to add any information to c which is necessary
    for the rest of its implementations to work. This may be something like
    an `appengine.Context` or some connection information for an external
    server. The `...` in the function signature may be any additional data
  * Any of the package functions:

      UseDS(context.Context) context.Context
      UseMC(context.Context) context.Context
		   UseTQ(context.Context) context.Context
      UseGI(context.Context) context.Context

	   each of which would call gae.Set<service>Factory with the factory
	   function for that interface type.
	 * A `Use(context.Context) context.Context` function which calls all of the
	   `Use*` package functions implemented by the package.
  * Partially-implemented interfaces should embed one of the Dummy* structs
    which will panic with an appropriate error for unimplemented

see "infra/gae/libs/gae/oldsdk" for an appengine-backed implementation.

Datastore struct serialization uses the tag name 'gae' instead of 'datastore', and uses gae.DSKey but otherwise behaves identically. You must use the new-SDK primitive types (like GeoPoint, ByteString, etc.), even when using the old-SDK implementation of the factories. This was done to ensure that all code written against gae is go-gettable, and was deemed as less-annoying than re-defining all of the types identically.

Kinds/Keys work similarly to how they work in goon (except you no longer use the goon + datastore tags and key/control-related tags start with $):

type FooModel struct {
  _kind     string       `gae:"$kind,Foo"`
  Id        string       `gae:"$id"`
  Parent    DSKey        `gae:"$parent"`

  privateSkipped bool
  AutoSave       int
  NoSaveField    string `gae:"-"`
  NoIndexField   float  `gae:",noindex"`
  DiffName       string `gae:"coolName"`

func (FooModel) GetCachePolicy() DSCacheFlags { return DSCache }
