1. Deploy the laravel-worker helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy a Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, we will be using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource. This resource allows us to deploy Helm charts into a Kubernetes cluster, which in this case is OpenShift, an enterprise Kubernetes platform.

    Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that bundles applications into standardized units called charts, which contain all of the resource definitions necessary to run an application or service within a Kubernetes cluster.

    Before you run this code, make sure that you have:

    1. Installed Pulumi and set up your Pulumi account.
    2. Configured Pulumi for Kubernetes.
    3. Installed Helm, and added the Helm repository containing the laravel-worker chart if it's in a custom repo.
    4. Have an OpenShift cluster up and running and you are authenticated to the cluster where you would want to deploy the Helm chart.

    Below is a TypeScript program that demonstrates how to deploy a Helm chart to OpenShift. Replace the chart, version, repo, and values with the ones that match the laravel-worker chart you intend to deploy.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a Helm Chart resource using the 'laravel-worker' chart. const laravelWorkerChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("laravel-worker", { // Specify the chart, version, and repo URL as per the 'laravel-worker' chart's details. chart: "laravel-worker", version: "x.x.x", // replace with the chart version you wish to deploy // If the chart is in a custom repository, provide the repo URL in the `fetchOpts.repo` property. fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.example.com/", // replace with the actual repo URL }, // Specify the namespace where the chart should be deployed. namespace: "my-namespace", // replace with the actual namespace // Provide any custom values to the chart by including a values object. values: { // ... you will replace this with your actual values }, }); // Export the base URL of the laravel-worker service, if applicable. export const laravelWorkerUrl = laravelWorkerChart.getResourceProperty( "v1/Service", "laravel-worker", "status" ).apply(status => `http://${status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname}`);

    Here's a step-by-step explanation of what the code is doing:

    • First, we import the Kubernetes package from Pulumi.
    • We create a new Helm chart using k8s.helm.v3.Chart. In initializing this Chart, we provide it with a name ("laravel-worker"), which should be unique within your Kubernetes/OpenShift namespace.
    • In the configuration object:
      • chart specifies the name of the chart you want to deploy.
      • version is the version number of the chart.
      • fetchOpts can include a repo property, which is the URL to the Helm chart's repository. This is necessary if your chart is not in the default Helm repository.
      • namespace specifies the namespace in OpenShift where you want to deploy this chart.
      • values is an object that allows you to customize the Helm chart deployment. You need to replace this with the values according to the laravel-worker Helm chart documentation.
    • Finally, we export a URL for accessing the laravel-worker service. It assumes that your service is exposed via a LoadBalancer; however, this may differ if you are, for example, using ClusterIP or NodePort.

    Remember to replace "x.x.x" with the correct chart version, https://charts.example.com/ with the actual Helm repository URL, and populate the values with the configuration applicable to laravel-worker chart.

    Please note that OpenShift has its own security policies, and depending on the permissions of the service account running your Pods, you might need to configure appropriate security contexts or OpenShift-specific resource properties. Make sure the service account associated with the deployment has enough permissions to create required resources within OpenShift.
