1. Deploy the chart-test helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the chart-test Helm chart on an AWS EKS cluster using Pulumi in TypeScript, you need to perform the following high-level steps:

    1. Create an EKS cluster
    2. Deploy the Helm chart onto the EKS cluster

    We will use the @pulumi/eks package to create an Amazon EKS cluster and the @pulumi/kubernetes package to deploy the Helm chart.

    Here's how you can do it:

    Step 1: Install the required Pulumi packages

    Before writing the code, you need to include Pulumi's EKS and Kubernetes packages in your project. Install these using either npm or yarn as follows:

    npm install @pulumi/eks @pulumi/kubernetes


    yarn add @pulumi/eks @pulumi/kubernetes

    Step 2: Write the Pulumi Program

    Create a new file index.ts and add the following TypeScript code:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an EKS cluster with the default configuration const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", {}); // Declare the Helm chart for deployment const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("chart-test", { chart: "chart-test", version: "1.0.0", // Specify the version of the chart if known fetchOpts: { repo: "http://myhelmrepo.org/charts", // Replace with the chart's repository URL }, namespace: "default", // Specify the namespace if necessary }, { provider: cluster.provider }); // Export the cluster kubeconfig and chart resources export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // This will output the kubeconfig which one can use with `kubectl` // to interact with the Kubernetes cluster, once Pulumi has finished deploying.


    1. We import the necessary Pulumi libraries for EKS and Kubernetes.
    2. We create a new EKS cluster with the eks.Cluster constructor.
    3. We declare a new Helm chart using k8s.helm.v3.Chart.
    4. We pass the required parameters such as:
      • chart: The name of the chart to deploy.
      • version: The version of the chart (if known).
      • fetchOpts.repo: The URL of the Helm chart repository.
      • namespace: The namespace where the chart will be deployed.
    5. We ensure that the Helm chart uses the EKS provider.
    6. We export the kubeconfig which you can use to connect to the cluster with kubectl after the deployment.

    Step 3: Deploy the Pulumi Program

    To deploy this program:

    1. Save the above code in index.ts.
    2. Run pulumi up in the terminal from the same directory.
    3. Pulumi CLI will prompt for confirmation, review the plan and approve it.

    Once the deployment is successful, Pulumi will output the kubeconfig to connect to your EKS cluster.

    Step 4: Access the Cluster

    After the execution, you can access your EKS cluster using the kubectl CLI tool with the generated kubeconfig.

    Note: Ensure your kubectl is installed and available in your PATH. You will also need AWS credentials configured locally that Pulumi can use to provision resources in your AWS account.

    Step 5: Clean Up

    When you no longer need the resources, run pulumi destroy to clean up all resources created by your Pulumi program, and pulumi stack rm to remove the stack if desired.

    Remember to handle your infrastructure with care to avoid unexpected charges and make sure to clear resources you no longer use.
