Saving an entity in Google Cloud Datastore using Python: A minimal example

Here’s a minimal example for inserting an entity in the Google Cloud Datastore object database using the Python API:

#!/usr/bin/env python3
from import datastore
# Create & store an entity
client = datastore.Client(project="myproject-12345")
entity = datastore.Entity(key=client.key('MyEntityKind', 'MyTestID'))
    'foo': u'bar',
    'baz': 1337,
    'qux': False,
# Actually save the entity

This assumes you have already created an entity kind with the name MyEntityKind in the project with ID myproject-12345.
