1. GitHub as Code Repository for AI Pipelines


    To manage GitHub as a code repository for AI pipelines using Pulumi, you'll likely be interfacing with a variety of GitHub resources—repositories, branches, webhooks, teams, and more. Pulumi offers a GitHub provider that allows you to manage these resources programmatically.

    Let's explore how you can create a GitHub repository with Pulumi, set up branch protection rules, and add webhooks. These components are common when setting up a repository for AI pipeline code, ensuring that the code is reviewed before being merged (branch protection) and triggering CI/CD pipelines upon certain GitHub events (webhooks).

    Below, I'll provide a Python program using Pulumi that sets up a new GitHub repository, configures branch protection rules for the main branch, and creates a webhook that could be utilized for automating AI pipeline tasks. Throughout the code, you'll find comments that explain what each part of the program is doing.

    This program assumes you have a GitHub Access Token with the appropriate permissions to create and manage repositories and other resources on GitHub. It also assumes that you have pulumi_github installed in your Python environment and have already set up the Pulumi GitHub provider with your credentials.

    Here is a step-by-step explanation of the code:

    1. Import Dependencies: We import Pulumi's pulumi_github package to interact with GitHub.

    2. Create a GitHub Repository: A new GitHub repository is created using the github.Repository resource. We set properties like the name, description, and visibility.

    3. Configure Branch Protection: We protect the main branch using the github.BranchProtection resource to enforce certain requirements before merging, such as requiring pull request reviews, status checks, etc.

    4. Create a Webhook: Webhooks are set up using the github.RepositoryWebhook resource. When specific GitHub events occur, these webhooks will trigger an HTTP POST payload to the webhook's configured URL. This is important for CI/CD integrations.

    Let's dive into the Pulumi program:

    import pulumi import pulumi_github as github # Configure your GitHub access token as an environment variable # Replace 'your-github-token' with your actual GitHub token before running the program pulumi.config.set_secret("github:token", "your-github-token") # Create a GitHub repository for your AI pipelines code ai_repo = github.Repository("AI-Pipelines", description="Repository for AI pipelines", visibility="private", # You can choose 'public' or 'private' ) # Set up branch protection for the main branch main_branch_protection = github.BranchProtection("main", branch="main", repository=ai_repo.name, # Define your branch protection rules here required_pull_request_reviews=github.BranchProtectionRequiredPullRequestReviewsArgs( dismiss_stale_reviews=True, require_code_owner_reviews=True, required_approving_review_count=1, ), enforce_admins=True, required_status_checks=github.BranchProtectionRequiredStatusChecksArgs( strict=True, contexts=["ci/travis-ci"] # Replace with your CI/CD context ), ) # Create a webhook for the repository ai_repo_webhook = github.RepositoryWebhook("AI-Pipelines-Webhook", repository=ai_repo.name, # Trigger the webhook when `push` events happen on the repo events=["push"], configuration=github.RepositoryWebhookConfigurationArgs( url="https://your-ci-server.example.com/events", # Replace with your CI/CD server content_type="json", secret="your-webhook-secret", # Replace with your actual webhook secret insecure_ssl=False ), ) # Export the repository's name and webhook URL as stack outputs pulumi.export("repository_name", ai_repo.name) pulumi.export("webhook_url", ai_repo_webhook.configuration.apply(lambda conf: conf["url"]))

    When you execute this Pulumi program, it will communicate with GitHub to create and configure resources as defined. The pulumi.export statements at the bottom of the file provide you with output that you can use to easily access created resources.

    Remember to replace placeholder text like your-github-token, your-webhook-secret, and https://your-ci-server.example.com/events with your actual secrets and URLs.

    This example covers creating a new GitHub repository and setting up basic protections and automation. Adapt this program to fit your specific AI pipeline needs, such as adding more complex branch protection rules, configuring additional webhooks, or creating team access policies.
