Step-1 ⟫ First, you need to install Docker if you haven’t already.
Docker will build your app into a container with a minimal operating system ready to run your server on any platform. We'll host it once it's all finished.
👉 Creating a Dart server app
After installing the Dart SDK, version 2.14 or later, use the
dart command to create a new server app:
$ dart create -t server-shelf myserver
👉 Running the server with Docker Desktop
If you have Docker Desktop installed, you can build and run on your machine with the
$ docker build -t dart-server . $ docker run -it --rm -p 8080:8080 --name myserver dart-server
When finished, you can stop the container using the name you provided:
$ docker kill myserver
Step-2 ⟫ Deploying to Google
This section will walk you through the process of deploying an API on Google Cloud Run. Before you begin, you must link your Google account to your billing account.
Then select your billing account and click SET ACCOUNT (in case you haven’t created your billing already. You can do so by following Create a new Cloud Billing account
👉 Time to deploy this image(from above), to Cloud Run.
Make sure you have the Google Cloud SDK installed on your machine.
Authenticate your user account with the gcloud CLI using
$ gcloud auth login
List your projects and set the preferred project
// List your GCP projects $ gcloud projects list // Set your project gcloud config set project \ 'YOUR PROJECT ID'
Now we need to publish our image inside the Google Container Registry (storing our docker image in GCP) using
$ gcloud builds submit --tag gcr.io/[YOUR-PROJECT-ID]/hello_world // Replace [YOUR-PROJECT-ID] with your project id
Finally, we deploy this container image to Cloud Run using
$ gcloud run deploy --image gcr.io/[YOUR-PROJECT-ID]/hello_world // Replace [YOUR-PROJECT-ID] with your project id
