Oops! We Couldn’t Retrieve Your List Of Kinds.

Occasionally you may see the error Oops! We couldn’t retrieve your list of kinds from the datastore viewer screen of the App Engine admin console:

Generally this is a transient error: it essentially means that the App Engine admin console is currently too busy to show a view of your datastore’s contents. Wait a few minutes and refresh the page, your datastore’s information should appear.

Seeing this error can also mean that the datastore is empty; for example, if it’s a just-created application.
