Web Tester (online tool hosted in Google App Engine)

Web Tester is a online tool to host your HTML page temporarily in a web-url. The tool is configured to expire content after 24 hours of publishing.

This tool was developed for a specific use in a project I was involved with. In this project we used defined rich snippets for SEO purposes. For testing this we required Google Rich Snippets Testing Tool. Unfortunately, Google's tool was available for use only for pages available in the internet. I had to enable my team to test content during development itself. So, I developed this tool wherein the development version of the pages can be web-enabled for immediate testing using Google's tool.

I am sure this is just one use of this tool. I am sure users could find many other interesting uses of it.

The source code of the tool is available here:
