Google Cloud Functions Go Runtime Demo

Demo Google Cloud Function showing use of the Go runtime. Read the Medium article that explains this here.

Deployment

$ gcloud components update
$ gcloud components install beta
$ gcloud beta functions deploy getUserDetails --runtime go111 --entry-point GetUserDetails --trigger-http --project <projectId>

Where <projectId> is your Google Cloud project ID.

Testing

Point a browser at:

https://<region>-<projectId>.cloudfunctions.net/getUserDetails

Where:

  • <region> is the Google Cloud region that you deployed to (e.g. us-central1)
  • <projectId> is your Google Cloud project ID

(the full URL that you need will be displayed in the output of the gcloud command when deploying the function).

You should see JSON representing a random user object pulled from the API that looks something like:
