Deploy a Go Gin Web Server

This is a sample Go web server powered by the Gin web framework. You can use it as a starting point for deploying your own Go web apps on Render.

The sample app is based on Gin’s realtime chat example, and is available at

The app uses server-sent events (SSEs) to broadcast messages.


  1. Fork render-examples/go-gin-web-server on GitHub.
  2. Create a new Web Service on Render, and give Render permission to access your new repo.
  3. Select Go for the environment and use the following values during creation:

    Build Command: ./

    Here are the contents of the build script:

    #!/usr/bin/env bash
    go get -u
    go get -d -v
    go get -d -v
    go build -o ./app main.go rooms.go routes.go stats.go

    It’s simply executing commands needed to build and deploy the web server on every push to your repo.

    Start Command: ./app

    This will start the app executable compiled during build.

That’s it! Your Go, Gin, and SSE powered web server will be available on your URL in the dashboard as soon as the build finishes.
