Glass is a programming language for writing Google App Engine web applications in Go. It is released under an open-source license and currently maintained by the community. Glass provides automatic scaling for web applications on Google's infrastructure and supports Go-style concurrent programming features such as goroutines. The language extends the Go server library to handle HTTP requests in an App Engine environment, letting developers build scalable apps capable of handling large amounts of traffic while remaining cost-effective through Google's pay-per-use pricing model. Glass uses static typing at compile time and offers a concise syntax that minimizes boilerplate code often associated with traditional web frameworks.
