1. Deploy the crossplane-exoscale-factory helm chart on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)


    To deploy the crossplane-exoscale-factory Helm chart on a Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) cluster, you will need to perform the following tasks:

    1. Set up a GKE cluster: This will be your Kubernetes environment where the Helm chart will be deployed.
    2. Install Crossplane: Crossplane is an open-source multicloud control plane. It allows you to manage your services from different cloud providers using Kubernetes as a common layer. The crossplane-exoscale-factory Helm chart specifically seems to be designed to work with Crossplane to set up resources in Exoscale (a cloud service provider).
    3. Deploy the Helm chart: After setting up Crossplane, you will deploy your crossplane-exoscale-factory chart onto your GKE cluster.

    Below is a detailed TypeScript program using Pulumi to complete these tasks. The program will define the necessary resources for the GKE cluster and Crossplane installation.


    • The Pulumi CLI installed and set up for GKE deployment.
    • Access to a GCP account with permissions to create GKE clusters.
    • kubectl installed to interact with the Kubernetes cluster.

    Detailed Program Explanation

    First, let's start with the GKE cluster setup. Pulumi provides resources under the @pulumi/gcp package to create and manage GKE clusters. We will create a simple GKE cluster with default settings.

    Next, we will ensure that kubectl is correctly configured to connect to your new GKE cluster using Pulumi's KubernetesProvider resource. This resource takes the kubeconfig from the GKE cluster output to manage Kubernetes resources.

    After setting up the cluster, we'll install Crossplane using its Helm chart. For that, we need to create a Chart resource from the @pulumi/kubernetes package, specifying Crossplane's Helm repository and chart name.

    Finally, we deploy the crossplane-exoscale-factory Helm chart. The chart's details will depend on the specifics of the chart and any values you need to override. Ensure you have the correct chart name and repository URL.

    Here is the TypeScript program that performs the above tasks:

    import * as gcp from "@pulumi/gcp"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a GKE cluster const cluster = new gcp.container.Cluster("my-gke-cluster", { initialNodeCount: 2, nodeVersion: "latest", minMasterVersion: "latest", }); // Export the Cluster name export const clusterName = cluster.name; // Export the Kubeconfig to access your cluster from kubectl export const kubeconfig = pulumi. all([ cluster.name, cluster.endpoint, cluster.masterAuth ]). apply(([ name, endpoint, masterAuth ]) => { const context = `${gcp.config.project}_${gcp.config.zone}_${name}`; return `apiVersion: v1 clusters: - cluster: certificate-authority-data: ${masterAuth.clusterCaCertificate} server: https://${endpoint} name: ${context} contexts: - context: cluster: ${context} user: ${context} name: ${context} current-context: ${context} kind: Config preferences: {} users: - name: ${context} user: auth-provider: config: cmd-args: config config-helper --format=json cmd-path: gcloud expiry-key: '{.credential.token_expiry}' token-key: '{.credential.access_token}' name: gcp `; }); // Set up the Kubernetes provider using the generated kubeconfig const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("gkeK8s", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Install Crossplane using Helm chart const crossplane = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("crossplane", { chart: "crossplane", version: "1.6.0", // specify the desired Crossplane chart version fetchOpts:{ repo: "https://charts.crossplane.io/stable", }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Now, install the crossplane-exoscale-factory Helm chart const exoscaleFactory = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("exoscale-factory", { chart: "crossplane-exoscale-factory", // Assuming that the chart is available in a repository, otherwise you might need to use a local path. fetchOpts: { repo: "https://example.com/helm", // Replace with the correct repository URL }, // You may need to include additional configuration for the Helm chart here: values: { // ... specify any values required for the Helm chart }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export resources export const crossplaneChart = crossplane; export const exoscaleFactoryChart = exoscaleFactory;

    Usage Notes

    • Replace https://example.com/helm with the actual repository URL where the crossplane-exoscale-factory Helm chart is hosted.
    • This program assumes you're deploying charts with default configurations. Any specific configurations can be passed in the values field.
    • Crossplane's Helm chart version is set to 1.6.0, but you should use the latest version compatible with your deployment.
    • The Pulumi program will automatically use your GCP credentials configured on your system.
    • After deploying the program with pulumi up, you can use kubectl with the exported kubeconfig to interact with your GKE cluster.
