Remove appid (& namespace) from Key string
A string representation of entity's key always have app-id & namespace as a prefix. But in most case they are not required because too obvious. ex> Key : ag13YXJjbG91ZC10ZXN0chsLEgVGb3JjZRihnAEMCxIIVW5pdFNsb3QYAgw after removing appid_namespace part : chsLEgVGb3JjZRihnAEMCxIIVW5pdFNsb3QYAgw I know (kind,id or name) pair can be another solution for identifying unique entity but here, I just want to know how to eliminate app-id & namespace prefix and expose rest as a part of REST API... How can I remove them?
Hey, I'm not sure how you want your REST api to work, but if you do something like from google.appengine.ext import db def getRESTPath (entity): def addKeyPathRecursive (key): restPaths.append('%s/%s' % (key.kind(), key.id_or_name())) parentKey = key.parent() if parentKey: addKeyPathRecursive(parentKey) restPaths =  addKeyPathRecursive(entity.key()) return '/'.join(reversed(restPaths)) class Grandpa(db.Model): pass class Papa(db.Model): pass class Kid(db.Model): pass kid = Kid(parent = Papa(parent = Grandpa().put()).put()) kid.put() print getRESTPath(kid) you get a string like Grandpa/21386/Papa/21387/Kid/21388. If you just want (kind, id_or_name) without the ancestor path, I'm not sure why you're unhappy with '%s/%s' % (key.kind(), key.id_or_name()). You can't remove namespace info from the way the datastore treats keys internally, but that doesn't mean you have to display it to users.
