  • Actix but no CloudRun 🤷‍♂️: https://github.com/kpcyrd/mini-docker-rust/blob/main/Dockerfile
  • How to but no Actix 🤷‍♂️: https://www.gmosx.ninja/posts/2020/09/21/how-to-deploy-a-rust-service-to-google-cloud-run/

Run locally

# build
docker build -t hello-actix -f ./Dockerfile .

# run
docker run --rm --name hello-actix -p 8080:8080 -e "TARGET=foo" hello-actix

Deploy directly via gcloud to CloudRun

💡 Google Cloud Command Line Interface (gcloud CLI): https://cloud.google.com/cli

# Your config for CloudRun
export SERVICE_NAME=hello-actix

# Ensure we are all set
gcloud auth login
gcloud config set project $PROJECT_ID

# Enable cache https://github.com/GoogleContainerTools/kaniko
gcloud config set run/platform managed
gcloud config set builds/use_kaniko True
gcloud config set builds/kaniko_cache_ttl 24

# Submit build
gcloud builds submit --tag gcr.io/$PROJECT_ID/$SERVICE_NAME --timeout=30m

# Deploy with environment variables
gcloud run deploy --image gcr.io/$PROJECT_ID/$SERVICE_NAME --set-env-vars TARGET=foo

# Update environment variables (if need)
gcloud run services update $SERVICE_NAME --update-env-vars TARGET=bar
