How to deploy a Sails.js project on Google cloud?

I have followed the tutorials for and I can get a node.js app running on Google cloud, but I am using Sails.js for my project and if I try to deploy it with gcloud preview app deploy app.yaml --set-default, the deploy fails.

I can't find a tutorial on how to deploy a sails app. What are the steps I should follow?

EDIT: the error I get is ERROR: ( Not enough VMs ready (0/1 ready, 1 still deploying). Deployed Version: 20150623t154347.385222953610879860 I get this even with the default "empty" sails project created with sails new my_project.

UPDATE: I was able to deploy by using a different google project where the CPU quota wasn't maxed out, however:

  • When I look at, I see that an additional CPU is used everytime I run gcloud deploy and the number of CPUs used never decreases. How can I free up these CPUs?
  • When I browse to my project, all I see is

Error: Server Error The service you requested is not available yet. Please try again in 30 seconds.

Any idea what can cause this?

UPDATE2: In the App engine console logs I can see:

Fatal error: Unable to find local grunt.

Shouldn't grunt be already part of my project if it was installed with sudo npm install grunt --save ?

-------------Problems Reply------------

I managed eventually. The problem with Grunt was sorted by installing grunt and grunt-cli locally as well as a bunch of other dependencies.

Here is how to configure a Sails.js project to make it deployable on Google Cloud:

1) Add the following to the beginning of app.js:

"use strict";
var express = require('express');
var app = express();

2) Create an app.yaml file in the root of the project with the following content:

# [START runtime]
runtime: custom
vm: true
api_version: 1
module: default
# [END runtime]

# [START resources]
cpu: .5
memory_gb: 1.3
disk_size_gb: 10
# [END resources]

# [START scaling]
min_num_instances: 1
max_num_instances: 5
cool_down_period_sec: 60
target_utilization: 0.5
# [END scaling]

NODE_ENV: production

3) Make sure the package.json file contains the following scripts and dependencies:

"scripts": {
"start": "node app.js",
"monitor": "nodemon app.js",
"deploy": "gcloud preview app deploy app.yaml"
"dependencies": {
"express": "^4.12.0",
"gcloud": "^0.15.0",
"grunt": "^0.4.5",
"grunt-cli": "^0.1.13",
"grunt-contrib-clean": "^0.6.0",
"grunt-contrib-coffee": "^0.13.0",
"grunt-contrib-concat": "^0.5.1",
"grunt-contrib-copy": "^0.8.0",
"grunt-contrib-cssmin": "^0.12.3",
"grunt-contrib-jst": "^0.6.0",
"grunt-contrib-less": "^1.0.1",
"grunt-contrib-uglify": "^0.9.1",
"grunt-contrib-watch": "^0.6.1",
"grunt-gcloud": "^0.2.0",
"grunt-sails-linker": "^0.10.1",
"grunt-sync": "^0.2.3",
"sails": "^0.11.0",
"sails-disk": "^0.10.8"

4) Create a Dockerfile file in the root of the project with the following content:

# [START docker]
FROM google/nodejs-runtime
# [END docker]

5) Change the default port by modifying the config/local.js file as follows:

port: process.env.PORT || 8080

6) Install all dependencies and push to cloud:

sudo npm install --save
gcloud preview app deploy app.yaml --set-default
