Deploying Cloud Functions

Deployment

You can deploy Cloud Functions from your local machine or from your GitHub or Bitbucket source repository (via Cloud Source Repositories). For details, see:

When deploying, Cloud Functions looks for particular files, depending on your runtime. See the Node.js 6, Node.js 8, and Python runtime overview pages for details.

Building and Testing Locally

Cloud Functions execute in runtime environments based on open source languages and frameworks so you can build and test your functions locally using standard Node.js 6, Node.js 8 and Python runtimes and development tools.

If your functions are written in Node.js, you can also use the Cloud Functions Node.js Emulator to run and debug your functions locally. This makes testing and debugging easier.
