1. Deploy the livekit-recorder helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the livekit-recorder Helm chart on an AWS EKS cluster, we’ll need to follow these steps:

    1. Create the EKS Cluster: We will create an Amazon EKS cluster, which is a managed Kubernetes service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install and operate your own Kubernetes control plane.

    2. Deploy the Helm Chart: Once the cluster is ready, we can deploy the livekit-recorder Helm chart on our EKS cluster. Helm charts help you define, install, and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes applications.

    Below is a Pulumi program written in TypeScript. This program will set up an EKS cluster and then deploy the livekit-recorder Helm chart to that cluster.

    Detailed Explanation:

    First, we'll initialize a new Pulumi project and create an EKS cluster using the eks.Cluster class. This cluster will have default settings, which are suitable for many use cases. The cluster will be provisioned with a default node group to run our workloads.

    Next, we'll deploy the livekit-recorder Helm chart using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart class, which represents a Helm chart in a Pulumi program.

    This example assumes you have AWS credentials configured on your machine and that those credentials have sufficient permissions to create these resources. If you're running it in an environment without AWS credentials, you will need to set up the AWS provider with appropriate credentials.

    Here's the TypeScript program:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as awsx from "@pulumi/awsx"; import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an EKS cluster with the default configuration. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", {}); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Set up a provider using the above kubeconfig to deploy Helm charts to the cluster. const provider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Deploy the livekit-recorder Helm chart. const livekitRecorderChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("livekit-recorder", { chart: "livekit-recorder", // Add the Helm repository URL here if it's not a stable chart or set the repo and version accordingly. // Example: // version: "x.y.z", // repo: "https://helm-repository-url.com/", }, { provider }); // Export the resources created. export const livekitRecorderChartResources = livekitRecorderChart.resources;


    Run this program with pulumi up after saving it as index.ts in a Pulumi project directory.

    Details on the Program:

    • The eks.Cluster constructor initializes a new EKS cluster. You can specify custom configurations such as VPC, subnets, node types, and more in the object passed to it.

    • kubeconfig is an output that holds the configuration required to connect to your cluster with kubectl and other Kubernetes tools.

    • The k8s.Provider is instantiated with the generated kubeconfig to interact with the EKS cluster.

    • livekit-recorder is deployed as a helm chart using the k8s.helm.v3.Chart class. Remember to replace the chart, version, and repo with the correct values for the livekit-recorder chart.

    • livekitRecorderChartResources holds the details for all Kubernetes resources created as a result of deploying the livekit-recorder Helm chart so you can reference them in your program if needed.

    Before you run the command pulumi up, make sure you have installed Pulumi CLI and initialized a Pulumi project. If the livekit-recorder Helm chart requires any custom values or you want to override the defaults, you can specify them in the values argument to the Chart resource. For more complex configurations, please consult the EKS documentation and the Helm Chart documentation on the Pulumi website.
