1. Deploy the helm-csi-driver-nfs helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the helm-csi-driver-nfs Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you will need to use the @pulumi/kubernetes package, which provides the required classes and functions to work with Kubernetes resources in a declarative way with Pulumi.

    The primary resource for deploying a Helm chart with Pulumi is kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart, which represents a Helm chart in a Pulumi program. When you create an instance of Chart, Pulumi will ensure that the Helm chart is installed on your cluster with the configuration you provide.

    Here is a step-by-step Pulumi TypeScript program that deploys the csi-driver-nfs Helm chart:

    1. Install the Pulumi CLI and set up your Kubernetes context so that Pulumi can interact with your cluster.

    2. Add the necessary Pulumi package to your project using the following command:

      npm install @pulumi/kubernetes
    3. Create a new TypeScript file in your Pulumi project, for example index.ts.

    4. Write your program to deploy the Helm chart:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // This is the name of the Helm chart we want to install. const chartName = "csi-driver-nfs"; // This is the name of the release for this Helm chart. const releaseName = "my-csi-driver-nfs"; // Create an instance of the Chart class to deploy the nfs-subdir-external-provisioner Helm chart. // You'll need to specify the chart's repository options, including the repo URL, and any other configuration values for the chart. const nfsCsiDriverChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart(releaseName, { chart: chartName, version: "v3.1.0", // Specify the version of the chart you wish to deploy fetchOpts: { repo: "https://kubernetes-sigs.github.io/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner/", // Helm chart repository URL }, // Specify any custom values you want to pass to the Helm chart. // For this example, we'll assume the default values are sufficient. // You can customize these values based on your specific requirements. values: { // Here you can provide configuration specific to the helm-csi-driver-nfs chart. // For example, to set a custom value, uncomment and update the following lines: // image: { // repository: "my-custom-image-repo", // tag: "my-custom-tag", // }, }, }); // Export the name of the namespace that the chart was deployed into. // Note: If you haven't specified a namespace, it will be deployed into the default namespace. export const chartNamespace = nfsCsiDriverChart.namespace;

    After writing this program:

    • Run pulumi up to create the resources and deploy the Helm chart to your cluster.
    • Check the output of the command execution to see the status of the deployment and other outputs you have exported, such as the namespace.

    What the code does:

    • It imports the required Pulumi Kubernetes package.
    • It specifies the chart's name, release name, chart version, and repository URL.
    • It creates the Helm chart instance using new k8s.helm.v3.Chart.
    • It optionally allows setting custom values for the Helm chart deployment.
    • It exports the namespace used by the Helm chart, which is useful for querying or managing resources in that namespace later on.
