Run your program locally with the native development tools that you usually use.For example,
Deploying your programDeploy your app using the gcloud app deploy command. This command automatically builds a container image for you by using the Container Builder service before deploying the image to the App Engine flexible environment control plane. The container will include any local modifications you've made to the runtime image.
gcloud app deploy
By default the
deploy command automatically generates a new version ID each
time that you use it and will route any traffic to the new version.
To override this behavior, you can specify the version ID with the
gcloud app deploy --version myID
You can also specify not to send all traffic to the new version immediatey with
gcloud app deploy --no-promote
Manually building a container for deployment
To build your container images outside of Google Cloud Platform, you must
first upload your images to a container image repository before you can deploy
your images to App Engine with the
gcloud app deploy command.
For example, if you build your container images locally with Docker, you can
push those images to
Google Container Registry
and then specify the URL of your image in the
--image-url flag of the
gcloud app deploy command:
gcloud app deploy --image-url gcr.io/my-project-id/my-container-image
Docker base images for Node.jsIf you'd like to build a Node.js custom runtime application from scratch, you can use this base image in a Dockerfile:
