1. Deploy the kube-arangodb helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the kube-arangodb Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you need to use the helm.sh/v3.Chart resource. This resource allows you to deploy a Helm chart from within a Pulumi program. Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that packages multiple Kubernetes resources into a single logical deployment unit called a Chart.

    In the Pulumi program below, we'll first import the required packages. Then, we'll create a new Helm chart resource specifying the chart name (kube-arangodb in this case) and its settings. Ensure you have a Kubernetes cluster running and accessible via kubectl in your environment, as Pulumi will use your kubeconfig file to communicate with the cluster.

    Here is a complete Pulumi program in TypeScript that deploys the kube-arangodb Helm chart:

    import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the kube-arangodb Helm chart resource const arangoDbChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("kube-arangodb", { // Replace <repo-url> with the URL of the Helm repository that contains the kube-arangodb chart repo: "<repo-url>", // The name of the chart as found in the Helm repository chart: "kube-arangodb", // Optional: specify a version for the chart. If not set, the latest version will be installed version: "<chart-version>", // You can specify the values for the chart's configurable options here. // These are equivalent to the content of a `values.yaml` file or the `--set` flag when using helm CLI values: { // For example, if the chart allows you to specify the number of replicas you could set it like this: // replicas: 3, }, // Optional: specify the namespace where the chart should be installed // If not set, it will use the default namespace namespace: "kube-arangodb", }); // Export the base URL for ArangoDB to be accessed outside the cluster export const arangoDbUrl = arangoDbChart.getResourceProperty( "v1/Service", "kube-arangodb", "status" ).apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname || status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    Before you run this Pulumi program, you need to:

    1. Install Node.js and npm.
    2. Install Pulumi CLI.
    3. Configure access to your Kubernetes cluster (kubeconfig).
    4. Provide the correct repository URL where the kube-arangodb chart can be found.
    5. If needed, specify the exact version of the chart you want to deploy.
    6. Adjust the values field with the configuration required for your deployment. This may include things like resource allocations, service types, persistence configuration, etc., depending on what the chart provides.
    7. Optionally, you can set the namespace where the Helm chart will be deployed. If you don't set it, the default namespace is used.

    Once you run this Pulumi program, it will deploy the kube-arangodb Helm chart to your Kubernetes cluster. The arangoDbUrl export will provide the URL on which ArangoDB can be accessed, assuming it's exposed via a LoadBalancer service.

    To deploy the chart, run the following Pulumi CLI commands:

    pulumi up

    This command will preview and deploy the changes described by the Pulumi program. It will create the resources in your Kubernetes cluster that are managed by the ArangoDB Helm chart.
