1. Deploy the kube-httpcache helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the kube-httpcache Helm chart on OpenShift using Pulumi, we'll use the kubernetes package, which is Pulumi's provider for managing Kubernetes resources. The Chart resource from the helm.sh/v3 namespace within this package can be used to deploy Helm charts.

    In this tutorial, you will see a Pulumi program written in TypeScript that demonstrates how to deploy the kube-httpcache Helm chart to an OpenShift cluster. This program assumes that you have already configured your OpenShift cluster and have the kubectl command-line tool set up with the appropriate context to interact with your cluster.

    Here are the steps we're going to perform in the program:

    1. Import the necessary Pulumi and Kubernetes packages.
    2. Create an instance of Chart to deploy the kube-httpcache Helm chart.
    3. Export any necessary stack outputs, such as the service endpoint.

    Below is the Pulumi program that deploys the kube-httpcache Helm chart on OpenShift:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a new Helm Chart for kube-httpcache. const kubeHttpCacheChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("kube-httpcache", { // Replace 'CHART_REPO' with the actual repository URL where your Helm chart is located. // For example, if your chart is in the Helm stable repository, you could uncomment the following line: // repo: "https://charts.helm.sh/stable", chart: "kube-httpcache", // Ensure that you are specifying the correct namespace where you want to deploy the chart. namespace: "default", // You can specify values for the Helm chart parameters here. // For example: // values: { // size: 3, // }, // If needed, you can customize the fetch options for the Helm chart. // Here's an example of using the fetchOpts parameter: // fetchOpts: { // repo: "https://your-custom-repo.example.com/charts", // }, }); // Export any necessary stack outputs. In this case, we might want to export the Helm chart name. // You can also export service endpoint and other resources created by the Helm chart as needed. export const chartName = kubeHttpCacheChart.metadata.name;

    This program creates a Chart resource which refers to the kube-httpcache Helm chart. You will need to modify the repo parameter with the appropriate Helm chart repository URL. If the chart provides custom values that you would like to modify, you can also pass an object to the values property.

    Please make sure that you have the Helm chart repository and the name or path of the chart correct before executing this program.

    After the deployment, the export line will make the name of the deployed Helm chart available as a stack output.

    To run this Pulumi program:

    1. Save the code to a file with a .ts extension, for example, deployKubeHttpCache.ts.
    2. Ensure you have Pulumi installed and configured with access to your OpenShift cluster.
    3. Run the following commands in your terminal:
      pulumi stack init dev # Create a new stack named 'dev'. pulumi up # Preview and deploy the changes.

    Pulumi will perform the deployment, and you should see the resources being created in your OpenShift cluster. If you encounter any errors, check that your Pulumi configuration aligns with your cluster's access credentials and that the Helm chart details are correct.
