1. Deploy the tyk-dashboard helm chart on Digital Ocean Kubernetes Service


    To deploy the Tyk Dashboard Helm chart on DigitalOcean Kubernetes Service using Pulumi, you will need to complete several steps. First, you'll need to create a Kubernetes cluster on DigitalOcean. Then, once you have the cluster, you will use the Helm Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to deploy the Tyk Dashboard onto the cluster.

    Let's go through the Pulumi program that performs these steps:

    1. Create a DigitalOcean Kubernetes Cluster: This cluster will be where you deploy your applications, including the Tyk Dashboard.

    2. Deploy the Tyk Dashboard Helm Chart: After the cluster is up and running, you can deploy the Tyk Dashboard onto it using a Helm Chart. The Helm chart encapsulates all the Kubernetes resources needed for the Tyk Dashboard.

    Here is a complete program that performs these steps in TypeScript:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as digitalocean from "@pulumi/digitalocean"; import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; const config = new pulumi.Config(); // Create a DigitalOcean Kubernetes cluster const cluster = new digitalocean.KubernetesCluster("tyk-k8s-cluster", { region: digitalocean.Regions.NYC1, // Specify your desired region version: "1.21.5-do.0", // Specify your desired Kubernetes version nodePool: { name: "tyk-node-pool", size: digitalocean.DropletSlugs.DropletS2VCPU2GB, // Choose the droplet size as per your requirements nodeCount: 2, // Number of nodes in the node pool }, }); // Create a Kubernetes provider instance configured to the deployed cluster const k8sProvider = new kubernetes.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeConfigs[0].rawConfig, }); // Deploy the Tyk Dashboard Helm chart const tykDashboardChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("tyk-dashboard", { repo: "tyk-helm", // Tyk official Helm chart repository chart: "tyk-dashboard", version: "0.9.0", // Specify the version of the Tyk Dashboard Helm chart you want to deploy namespace: "tyk", // Target namespace for the Tyk Dashboard deployment }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig and the Tyk Dashboard service endpoint export const kubeConfig = cluster.kubeConfigs[0].rawConfig; export const tykDashboardServiceEndpoint = tykDashboardChart.getResource("v1/Service", "tyk/tyk-dashboard-tyk-dashboard").status.apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    Here we have defined a Pulumi TypeScript program that performs the following actions:

    • Imports the necessary Pulumi libraries.
    • Initializes configuration which could be used to abstract sensitive or changeable values.
    • Creates a new Kubernetes cluster on DigitalOcean using the KubernetesCluster resource. You may adjust the region, the Kubernetes version, and the Droplet size according to your requirements.
    • Sets up a Kubernetes provider that uses the kubeconfig of the cluster we just created. This is necessary to deploy resources to the Kubernetes cluster.
    • Deploys the Tyk Dashboard Helm chart using the Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. You can specify the repository, chart name, chart version, and namespace.
    • Exports the kubeconfig, which you will need to manage your Kubernetes cluster using kubectl or any Kubernetes client. It also exports the service endpoint IP for the Tyk Dashboard, which you can use to access the dashboard once deployed.

    Please ensure you have the following before running the program:

    • Pulumi CLI installed
    • Access to a DigitalOcean account and a personal access token

    Once you have Pulumi installed and DigitalOcean access configured, you can run this program with the following commands:

    pulumi stack init dev pulumi up

    The pulumi up command will show you a preview of the resources that will be created. After confirming the action, Pulumi will provision the resources on DigitalOcean and deploy the Tyk Dashboard Helm chart.
