Fellow wavers,

rather than making waves accessible in Google Docs, which takes too
long, we are releasing our code in a form that will hopefully be
useful in the short term.  You can find it at
https://code.google.com/p/walkaround/ .

>From the project description:
Walkaround is a variant of Wave, based on the Apache Wave code base,
that runs on App Engine.  Walkaround can import waves from
wave.google.com to allow users to keep working with their data
regardless of the future of wave.google.com.  (The import feature is
still experimental.)

Much of the walkaround code is not specific to Wave, but factored out
as a separate, more general collaboration layer that manages shared
live objects.  These objects can be modified by multiple clients at
the same time, with changes made by any client immediately broadcast
to all others.  The Wave application is built on top of this, but the
live collaboration layer is flexible enough to support other

Walkaround supports live concurrent rich-text editing, in-line
replies, user avatars, wave gadgets, attachments, and we are working
on integrating App Engine's full text search service.  For now, it
does not support Wave robots, federation, or private replies, but
these features could be added.

Some of you have been asking about Wave on App Engine; perhaps this is
what you are looking for.

The Wave application in walkaround depends very heavily on the Apache
Wave code base, but the general collaboration layer is useful
independently, so we put it into a separate repository for now.

Happy hacking,

Vicente J. Ruiz Jurado
