1. Deploy the vspgwu helm chart on Digital Ocean Kubernetes Service


    To deploy a Helm chart named vspgwu on Digital Ocean's Kubernetes Service using Pulumi, you'll first create a Kubernetes cluster on Digital Ocean. After that, you will use the Helm chart resource to deploy your chart to the cluster you just created.

    Here's how you can do it using TypeScript in Pulumi:

    1. Set up your Pulumi project: Make sure you have Pulumi installed, and you have set up a new Pulumi project. Configure Pulumi to use TypeScript.

    2. Digital Ocean Token: Ensure you have a Digital Ocean token set up in your environment variables or Pulumi configuration.

    3. Kubernetes Configuration: The kubeconfig file will be generated when you create a Digital Ocean Kubernetes cluster. You need to ensure Pulumi has access to this configuration to manage resources in your Kubernetes cluster.

    4. Helm Chart Details: You need the details of the vspgwu Helm chart like the repository URL, chart version, any values you wish to override, etc.

    Now let's write the Pulumi program. First, you'll define the cluster:

    import * as digitalocean from "@pulumi/digitalocean"; import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a Digital Ocean Kubernetes cluster const cluster = new digitalocean.KubernetesCluster("do-cluster", { region: digitalocean.Regions.NYC1, version: "latest", nodePool: { size: digitalocean.DropletSlugs.DropletS2VCPU2GB, name: "default", nodeCount: 1, }, }); // Export the clusters' kubeconfig export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeConfigs[0].rawConfig;

    Once you've defined your Kubernetes cluster, you can define your Helm chart deployment:

    // Deploy the vspgwu Helm chart to the cluster const vspgwuChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("vspgwu-chart", { repo: "your-helm-chart-repository", chart: "vspgwu", version: "chart-version", // specify the chart version you wish to deploy // Pass values to the Helm chart via the 'values' property below if required values: { // Example of setting values; actual values depend on the `vspgwu` chart's values // serviceName: "vspgwu-service", // serviceType: "LoadBalancer", }, }, { provider: new kubernetes.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeConfigs[0].rawConfig }) }); // Export the URL of the vspgwu service export const vspgwuServiceUrl = vspgwuChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "vspgwu-service", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    In the above code:

    • We define a Digital Ocean Kubernetes cluster in the NYC1 region. You can customize the region, Kubernetes version, and droplet size based on your requirement.
    • We export the kubeconfig which is required to interact with the Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi or any other Kubernetes management tool.
    • We create an instance of Chart, which refers to the vspgwu Helm chart. You will need to specify the repo and version properties matching your Helm chart's repository and the version you wish to deploy.
    • We provide an additional configuration to the Helm chart via the values property, which is equivalent to the values.yaml file or the --set flag in Helm CLI.
    • The second parameter in the Chart constructor provides the kubeconfig from the created cluster to the Kubernetes provider.
    • We also export the service URL assuming that vspgwu defines a LoadBalancer service type that exposes an IP address.

    Remember to replace your-helm-chart-repository and chart-version with the actual repository URL and chart version respectively.

    Once you have this program, you can deploy your infrastructure by running pulumi up. Ensure you have authenticated with Pulumi CLI and your default Digital Ocean configuration is set in your shell session.
