appcfg.py is depracated but I couldn't find the new method with gcloud either

A S.O. answer says the source is available here: https://console.cloud.google.com/cloud-build/builds - but it's not for me - but maybe it's available for you, might be worth checking

Hello, kaan.

Thank you!
I appreciate it very much
The source could not be downloaded with Cloud Build.
Consider another method.

Thank you

Hello, 

You can view and copy the source code in Console -> App Engine -> Versions -> press 'tools' under specific version and choose 'source'. The files themselves are stored in staging.<project_id>.appspot.com bucket although under encrypted names and it might take some time to find specific version.

Let me know if you are unable to view them through the methods above.

thank you

The file exists in Bucket, but the filename has been renamed. The folder cannot be found either. Therefore, it was not possible to download the source code this way.

Thank you for your opinion.

Hello,

I understand that you would like to download your source code using the command. I have looked at our documentation and found that the command, appcfg.py, is deprecated and that the Google Cloud SDK does not support downloading the source code[1].

There is an alternative as mentioned here[2] where you can view the code, then manually copy and paste it to your local machine. “As of October 2019 you can simply go to --> App Engine --> Services and in the tool dropdown select 'source' and the source code is there”

I would like to investigate further. To do this, can you tell me what kind of App Engine you are using?

I know this is not ideal but it is a workaround but this is something you can try if in the meantime.

Thank you.

Hello, 

I continued investigating your issue and I found that you can only view and copy the source code.  

A feature request was opened for adding a button in order to download the source code. 

 Please star this PIT in order to receive the new updates [1].-------------------------
