1. Deploy the verhuizen-interface helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy a Helm chart on Kubernetes using Pulumi, you will use the Chart resource from the @pulumi/kubernetes package. This resource represents a Helm chart in a Pulumi program and allows you to deploy it to a Kubernetes cluster.

    Here's what you need to do step by step:

    1. Install Pulumi CLI and Set up Kubernetes Cluster: Before you start, you need to have Pulumi CLI installed on your machine and have access to a Kubernetes cluster. Pulumi will use your local kubeconfig file by default, so you need to ensure that you're configured to connect to your Kubernetes cluster.

    2. Install Pulumi Language SDK: You also need to install the Pulumi language SDK for TypeScript (Node.js). This application assumes you already have Node.js and npm installed.

    3. Set Up a New Pulumi TypeScript Project: Create a new directory for your project, navigate to that directory, and run pulumi new kubernetes-typescript to create a new Pulumi TypeScript project.

    4. Writing the Deployment Code: Now you'll write the actual code that declares your infrastructure, which in this case is simply deploying the Helm chart.

    5. Deploy the Helm Chart: Finally, you will deploy the Helm chart using pulumi up.

    Below is a Pulumi program in TypeScript that deploys the verhuizen-interface Helm chart. The following points provide a simple explanation of what each section does:

    • Imports: Including necessary Pulumi and Kubernetes packages.
    • Chart: Define a Helm chart resource, specifying the chart name, version (optional), and values (optional).
    • Stack Export: Export any necessary values from the stack which might be URLs or endpoints you might need to access the deployed application.
    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // This section creates a new Helm chart instance of the 'verhuizen-interface' application. const verhuizenInterfaceChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("verhuizen-interface", { // Replace with the repository URL where your Helm chart is located. // If the chart is part of the official Helm repo, you might not need to specify this. repo: "myhelmrepo", // Specify the name of the chart. chart: "verhuizen-interface", // Optionally, you can specify the version of the chart. // version: "1.0.0", // You can override default values by providing your custom values here. // values: { // key: "value" // } // If you are deploying into a specific namespace, uncomment and set the `namespace` property. // namespace: "default", }); // If you need to export the status URL or any other output from your deployed chart, // you can get that using chart.getResource and specifying // the kind of resource and the name as declared in the helm chart. // Here, we're just printing the chart name. export const chartName = verhuizenInterfaceChart.chart;

    Keep in mind:

    • The repo field should point to the Helm chart repository where verhuizen-interface is hosted. Replace myhelmrepo with the actual repository URL.
    • The version is optional, and if you do not specify it, the latest version of the chart will be deployed.
    • You can specify the namespace where you want to deploy the chart. If this is not included, it defaults to the default namespace.
    • If your Helm chart requires custom values to configure it, you can provide them in the values object.

    After writing this program, you can deploy this chart using the following command:

    pulumi up

    This command will show you a preview of what will be deployed. If everything looks good, select yes to proceed with the deployment. After the deployment is complete, it will output any values you have exported from your program.
