1. Deploy the variant-ui helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the variant-ui Helm chart on AWS EKS, we'll need to perform the following steps:

    1. Create an EKS Cluster: An Amazon EKS cluster is a managed Kubernetes service that makes it easy to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install and operate your own Kubernetes control plane.

    2. Deploy the Helm Chart to EKS: Helm charts are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources. Deploying a Helm chart allows us to easily deploy complex applications on Kubernetes.

    Here's an end-to-end example that:

    • Provisions an EKS cluster using the @pulumi/eks package.
    • Deploys the variant-ui Helm chart to the cluster.

    Make sure to have all pre-requisites installed such as Pulumi CLI, aws CLI, and configured AWS credentials. The variant-ui should be a Helm chart available in a Helm repository that we will include in our configuration.

    import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", { // Specify the desired version for the EKS cluster. version: "1.21", // By default, this will create a new VPC and or subnets for the EKS cluster. // You could also use an existing VPC and subnets by passing their IDs in the vpcConfig property. }); // Export the clusters' kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Once the cluster is provisioned in AWS, we can deploy the variant-ui Helm chart to it. // Create a Kubernetes provider instance by using the kubeconfig from the newly created EKS cluster. const provider = new k8s.Provider("my-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Deploy the variant-ui Helm chart using the above provider. const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("variant-ui", { chart: "variant-ui", version: "1.2.3", // specify the exact chart version // You'll need to pass proper repository details if the chart is not on the public Helm repository. fetchOpts: { repo: "http://charts.myorg.com", // placeholder for the Helm chart repository URL }, }, { provider }); // Exports export const clusterName = cluster.eksCluster.name; export const clusterEndpoint = cluster.eksCluster.endpoint;

    This program first imports the necessary Pulumi libraries. Then it creates an EKS cluster using the @pulumi/eks package. The kubeconfig output is exported so you can interact with your cluster using kubectl if necessary.

    After the EKS cluster setup, the program creates a Kubernetes provider with the newly available kubeconfig. Finally, it deploys the variant-ui Helm chart to the created cluster.

    Remember to replace "http://charts.myorg.com" with the actual Helm chart repository URL and "1.2.3" with the version of the variant-ui Helm chart you want to deploy.

    The fetchOpts parameter in the Chart resource specifies where to find the Helm chart. If the chart is already added to your Helm repositories on the machine where you run Pulumi, or it's in the public chart repository, you may not need the fetchOpts or will need to adjust them.

    For more information on managing EKS clusters with Pulumi, you can refer to the EKS documentation.

    To deploy this Pulumi program:

    1. Save the code in a file named index.ts.
    2. Run pulumi up in the same directory where the file is saved to create the resources.

    Ensure you have configured your AWS and Pulumi command-line tools with the necessary credentials and access rights to create these resources in your AWS account.
