1. Deploy the gradle-cache helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy a Helm chart onto a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you will typically use the Chart resource from the @pulumi/kubernetes package. The Chart resource allows you to deploy a Helm chart from various sources such as a repository, a local path, or even a chart that's been packaged into an archive.

    Below is a Pulumi TypeScript program that demonstrates how to use the Chart resource to deploy the gradle-cache Helm chart onto a Kubernetes cluster. This program assumes that you have a Kubernetes cluster up and running, and that you have already configured Pulumi to use the appropriate Kubeconfig file or context to communicate with your cluster.

    Please follow these steps:

    1. Ensure that @pulumi/kubernetes package is installed in your project:

      npm install @pulumi/kubernetes
    2. Here's your program, explained in detail:

    import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Create a new instance of the gradle-cache chart. // This assumes the chart is available in a Helm repository that has been added to your local Helm configuration. const gradleCacheChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('gradle-cache', { // You can specify the repo where your chart is located. repo: 'my-helm-charts', // Replace with the actual repo name chart: 'gradle-cache', // If you have custom values that you want to override in the chart, you can specify them here. // values: { // // Your custom values go here, for example: // persistence: { // size: '10Gi' // } // }, // Specify the namespace where the chart will be deployed. // If not specified, it will deploy in the 'default' namespace. namespace: 'default', // Replace with your target namespace if needed // Version of the chart you wish to deploy. version: '1.2.3' // Replace with the version of the chart you want to use }); // Export the base URL for the gradle-cache service once it is deployed and available. export const gradleCacheUrl = gradleCacheChart.getResourceProperty( 'v1/Service', // Assuming the chart creates a Service resource 'gradle-cache', // Name of the Service resource; may need to change depending on the actual name 'status' ).apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname || status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    In this program:

    • We import the @pulumi/kubernetes package which contains the necessary Kubernetes resources for deployment.
    • We create a new Chart resource named gradle-cache, specifying the required repo, chart, namespace, and version properties.
      • The repo property should be set to the name of the Helm repository where the gradle-cache chart is hosted.
      • For the chart property, we use the name of the chart we wish to install, which is gradle-cache.
      • We can use the namespace property to specify the Kubernetes namespace into which the chart should be deployed. If you don't specify a namespace, it defaults to the default namespace.
      • The version property specifies the version of the chart that you want to install. Replace '1.2.3' with the actual chart version you want to deploy.
    • If needed, a values property can be provided to specify any custom configuration options for the chart. This is commented out by default, but you can uncomment and edit it according to your chart's needs.
    • Finally, we use an export statement to expose the base URL of the deployed gradle-cache service, assuming that the Helm chart creates a Kubernetes Service resource. The .apply function is used here to handle the asynchronous resolution of the Service's load balancer information.

    Please replace the placeholders like 'my-helm-charts', '1.2.3', and potentially the name 'gradle-cache' in the getResourceProperty call with values that are appropriate for your specific Helm chart and environment.

    Once written, you can run this Pulumi program using the Pulumi CLI:

    pulumi up

    This will provision the resources as specified in the program. After successful execution, the gradleCacheUrl will contain the service endpoint for the gradle-cache deployment.
