Quick installation of Go Apps

First, make sure you have installed the following tools:

  • Docker

Step 1: Write Your Go Program

package main

import (

func main() {
http.HandleFunc("/", func(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
fmt.Fprintf(w, "Hello, World!")

http.ListenAndServe(":8080", nil)

Step 2: Create Docker Image

  • In the same directory as main.go, create a file named Dockerfile with the following content:
FROM golang:1.17 as builder

COPY . .

RUN go mod init myapp
RUN CGO_ENABLED=0 GOOS=linux go build -a -installsuffix cgo -o main .

FROM alpine:latest
RUN apk --no-cache add ca-certificates
COPY --from=builder /app/main /app/

ENTRYPOINT ["/app/main"]

This Dockerfile defines a multi-stage build process. In the first stage, we use the official golang image as the base image and then compile the Go application. In the second stage, we use the lightweight alpine image, copy the compiled binary file to the /app directory, and expose port 8080.

  • Run the following command in the directory where the Dockerfile is located to build a Docker image for the Go application:
docker build -t your_image_name .

Replace your_image_name with your image name and tag.

Step 3: Push Docker Image

  • Push the created Docker image to a Docker repository, such as Docker Hub or a private repository. Assuming you are already logged in to the Docker repository, use the following command to push the image:

    • First, tag the Docker image. Before pushing an image, you need to add a tag to it so that Docker knows where to push it. Run the following command to add a tag to the image:

      docker tag your-image-name your-dockerhub-username/your-repo-name:your-tag

      Replace your-image-name with your local image name, your-dockerhub-username with your Docker Hub username, your-repo-name with the repository name you want to create on Docker Hub, and your-tag with the tag you set for the image (e.g., latest).

      For example:

      docker tag demo damager6666/demo:latest
    • Next, push the Docker image. Use the following command to push the image to Docker Hub:

      docker push your-dockerhub-username/your-repo-name:your-tag

      Replace your-dockerhub-username, your-repo-name, and your-tag with the actual values. For example:

      docker push damager6666/demo:latest

Step 4: Log in to Sealos

  • Go to the Sealos official website

Step 5: Open the "App Launchpad" App

Step 6: Create a New Application

  • In "App Launchpad", click "Create New Application" to create a new application.

Step 7: Application Deployment

  • Basic Configuration:
    • Application Name (custom): go-demo
    • Image Name: damager6666/demo:latest
    • CPU (recommended): 1 Core
    • Memory (recommended): 1 G
  • Deployment Mode:
    • Number of Instances (custom): 1

  • Network Configuration:
    • Container Exposed Port: 8080
    • Internet Access: Enable

Step 8: Deploy Application

  • Click "Deploy Application" to start deploying the application.

Step 9: Access Application

  • Click "Application Management" to view. When the application's STATUS changes from Pending to Running, it means the application has started successfully.
  • When STATUS is Running, you can directly access the external network address.

  • In the browser, enter

  • The page displays "Hello, World!", indicating that your Go application is running on Sealos.
