does google cloud sdk need internet ? and cloud datastore too ?

It requires if you are deploying it
not while testing locally...


:hushed: I thought it needed, sorry :sweat_smile:

now there is also a video tutorial - How to make our own appinventor and run in on localhost


What is the error for this when i am downloading google cloud sdk

google cloud sdk erroe

Have you checked detailed logs for error message ? In order to install you must have Python installed and set PATH

Ok thank u @dora_paz but will you please tell me the size of appinventor-sources

But 24% of this is 428 mb

This is if you download zip to pc and extract it after. I f you use git



From where I can download it zip file

If you download zip file then you can not build your ow appinventor you need to clone it and to clone it you need 920 mb

This usually indicates corruption in your gcloud installation or problems with your Python interpreter.
Please verify that the following is the path to a working Python 2.7 or 3.5+ executable:
C:\Users\HP\AppData\Local\Google\Cloud SDK\google-cloud-sdk\platform\bundledpython\python.exe
If it is not, please set the CLOUDSDK_PYTHON environment variable to point to a working Python 2.7 or 3.5+ executable.
If you are still experiencing problems, please reinstall the Cloud SDK using the instructions here:

Something is wrong with your PATH's. Post a screenshot of your PATH settings like this

I am not in windows 10 I'm in windows 7 so I cannot acces this page
But I will send you text of my path values and then you check it

@dora_paz this is my list of Path Variables


This is in user's variables or system variables ? If missing try to add to path


then open a cmd window and type

where chcp

if everything is set it will give you the path
