Ruby on Rails web application on Google Managed VMs.


To run the application, first install dependencies:

$ bundle install

And then run the Rails web server:

$ rails server

To run the tests

$ bundle install
$ bundle exec rspec

To deploy to App Engine Managed VMs

Install the Google Cloud SDK:

$ curl https://sdk.cloud.google.com | bash

And then deploy the application:

$ gcloud app deploy

The application Dockerfile uses the google/ruby-runtime Docker image which supports running any Ruby web application.

The ruby-runtime image requires that your application directory contain the following:

  • Gemfile file declaring application dependencies
  • config.ru rackup file defining your web application
