1. Deploy the orchard-cms helm chart on Kubernetes


    Deploying an application using a Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster with Pulumi is straightforward. Pulumi provides a resource named Chart in its kubernetes package that allows you to deploy Helm charts.

    Below is a Pulumi program written in TypeScript that demonstrates how to deploy the Orchard CMS Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster. Before you begin, you should have Pulumi installed and configured with access to your Kubernetes cluster (e.g., via a valid kubeconfig file).

    This program assumes you want to deploy the Orchard CMS into the default namespace. If you wish to use a different namespace, ensure that namespace exists on your cluster, or create a new one using Pulumi's kubernetes.core.v1.Namespace resource.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // This creates a new Helm chart which represents the Orchard CMS. // Replace `<version>` with the specific version of the chart you want to deploy. // If you need to pass specific values to customize your deployment, use the `values` property. const orchardCmsChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("orchard-cms", { repo: "bitnami", // Specify the repository that contains the chart. chart: "orchard-cms", // Optionally specify the chart version, if not specified the latest will be installed. version: "<version>", // Optionally specify the namespace, if not specified the default will be used. namespace: "default", // Values provides any specific configuration values for the chart. values: { // For example, if you need to set the service type to LoadBalancer: // service: { type: "LoadBalancer" }, // Specify any other values required by the Orchard CMS Helm chart. }, }, { // The `provider` option is not required if you have a default k8s provider configured. // If you have multiple providers or a non-default configuration, pass the provider here. // provider: myK8sProvider, }); // To get the status of the deployed chart, e.g., to find out what IPs or endpoints are associated. export const orchardCmsStatus = orchardCmsChart.status;


    1. We import the @pulumi/kubernetes package which contains helpers for working with Kubernetes from Pulumi.
    2. We instantiate a new Chart resource, the core abstraction for a Helm chart deployment.
    3. The repo property is used to specify the name of the Helm chart repository. Here, it's assumed that the Orchard CMS chart is located in the Bitnami repository.
    4. The chart property references the name of the chart we want to deploy—in this case, "orchard-cms".
    5. The version property specifies the version of the chart you want to install.
    6. The namespace property determines which Kubernetes namespace the chart will be deployed into. It defaults to "default", but you can change it as needed.
    7. The values object is where you can override default Helm chart values. For instance, you could specify custom settings for the service type, resource limits, etc.
    8. The optional provider argument allows the chart to be deployed using a specific Kubernetes provider if you're managing multiple clusters.
    9. We export the status of the chart deployment to allow you to inspect the deployed resources (e.g., IP addresses, endpoints, and other relevant metadata).

    Please ensure to replace <version> with the actual version number of the Orchard CMS Helm chart that you wish to deploy. The Helm chart version and its configuration values can typically be found in the chart's documentation or artifact repository.

    Once the code is ready, you can create a new Pulumi project and place this code in the index.ts file. Then, running pulumi up will initiate the deployment process to your Kubernetes cluster. Pulumi will provide detailed output of the resources being created, updated, or deleted.
