1. Deploy the saleor helm chart on Digital Ocean Kubernetes Service


    To deploy the Saleor Helm chart on Digital Ocean Kubernetes (DOKS), we'll need to accomplish the following steps in our Pulumi TypeScript program:

    1. Create a Digital Ocean Kubernetes Cluster.
    2. Install the Saleor Helm chart on the cluster.

    For the first step, we'll use the digitalocean.KubernetesCluster resource from the DigitalOcean Pulumi provider. A Kubernetes Cluster is a managed Kubernetes service provided by Digital Ocean that simplifies Kubernetes cluster deployment and management. To deploy Saleor, which is an e-commerce platform, using a Helm chart, we'll interact with Kubernetes using the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from the Kubernetes Pulumi provider.

    In the provided code, I'll define the necessary resources for setting up a Kubernetes cluster on Digital Ocean and deploying the Saleor Helm chart to it. Please replace <YOUR_HELM_CHART_VERSION> with the version number of the Saleor Helm chart you intend to use.

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as digitalocean from "@pulumi/digitalocean"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Create a new Digital Ocean Kubernetes Cluster. const cluster = new digitalocean.KubernetesCluster("saleor-cluster", { region: digitalocean.Regions.NYC1, // Choose the region that is suitable for you. version: "latest", nodePool: { name: "default", size: digitalocean.DropletSlugs.Do2XSmall, // Choose the size that is suitable for your workload. nodeCount: 2, // Define the number of nodes in your cluster. }, }); // Step 2: Install the Saleor Helm chart into the Kubernetes cluster. const saleorChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("saleor", { chart: "saleor", version: "<YOUR_HELM_CHART_VERSION>", // Replace with the desired chart version fetchOpts: { repo: "https://charts.saleor.dev/" }, namespace: "default", // Define the namespace where the chart should be installed. }, { provider: new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeConfigs[0].rawConfig }) }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig and endpoint. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeConfigs[0].rawConfig; export const clusterEndpoint = cluster.endpoint;

    Here's what the code is doing:

    • We import the relevant Pulumi packages for DigitalOcean and Kubernetes operations.
    • We create a Kubernetes cluster using the digitalocean.KubernetesCluster resource. We specify the region, Kubernetes version, size of the Droplet (Digital Ocean's term for VM), and the desired node count.
    • We install Saleor on our cluster using a Helm chart with the k8s.helm.v3.Chart resource. We provide it with the chart name, desired version, and the chart repository URL. Note that the namespace specifying where to install Saleor is set to "default". You can change this according to your needs.
    • We specify that we want to use the kubeconfig from the newly created Kubernetes cluster for interacting with it.
    • We export the kubeconfig and cluster endpoint so that we can interact with the Kubernetes cluster from our local machine if necessary.

    To run this Pulumi program:

    1. Install Pulumi and set up your Pulumi account.
    2. Install Node.js and npm.
    3. Create a new directory for your Pulumi project and initialize it with pulumi new.
    4. Replace the contents of your index.ts file with the above code.
    5. Install the necessary npm packages with npm install.
    6. Set up your Digital Ocean token using the Pulumi configuration or environment variables.
    7. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy the changes.
    8. After it's done, you can access kubeconfig and clusterEndpoint outputs with pulumi stack output.

    As a novice user, you will likely explore and make changes to the configurations to better suit your needs, such as setting a specific Kubernetes version or adjusting the node sizes and count for performance requirements. Ensure that the Helm chart version <YOUR_HELM_CHART_VERSION> is compatible with the version of Kubernetes you are deploying to.
