Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I searched a lot for built web service like Google Talk, using Google Application Engine and Python.

For that first step is to check the status of online user on the Gmail. I found many code of it on python using XMPP library but it work only on python not using Google Application Engine.

There is also suggestion of using XMPP python API but it not give true status of user.

Google App Engine have an API for XMPP under "Services". The first documented method is get_presence() that returns exactly what you want.

Reference: https://developers.google.com/appengine/docs/python/xmpp/functions
