1. Deploy the teams-notification-consumer helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine


    To deploy the teams-notification-consumer Helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE), we will use the Pulumi kubernetes package and its helm.v3.Chart class. This class allows us to deploy Helm charts to a Kubernetes cluster. Before we start, ensure you have the following prerequisites in place:

    • Pulumi CLI installed
    • kubectl installed and configured to communicate with your Linode Kubernetes cluster
    • A Kubernetes cluster running on Linode (LKE)

    Now, let's go through the steps to deploy a Helm chart onto an LKE cluster using TypeScript in Pulumi:

    1. Set up a new Pulumi project or use an existing one. Initialize it with your preferred language, in our case, TypeScript.
    2. Ensure you have the necessary Pulumi provider for Linode configured, or use the default Kubernetes provider if you are using kubectl context.
    3. Create a file named index.ts where we will place our deployment code.
    4. Use the helm.v3.Chart class and provide it with the name of the chart, the repository URL (assuming it is a public Helm repo), and any values you want to override.

    Now, let's dive into the TypeScript code:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Configuration for deploying the chart. // Provide the name for the Helm release, chart version, and any custom values. const chartName = "teams-notification-consumer"; const chartVersion = "1.0.0"; // Replace with the real version of your chart const chartValues = {}; // Replace with any values you need to override // Deploy the teams-notification-consumer Helm chart const teamsNotificationConsumer = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart(chartName, { chart: chartName, version: chartVersion, fetchOpts: { // Replace `your-repo-url` with the actual Helm repository URL repo: "https://your-repo-url/here", }, // If you have any custom values to override, provide them here. values: chartValues, }); // Export the URL for the deployed application (if applicable). export const appUrl = teamsNotificationConsumer.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "teams-notification-consumer", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname);

    Make sure to update the chartName, chartVersion, chartValues, and the Helm repository URL (repo) with the actual values specific to the teams-notification-consumer Helm chart. If this Helm chart necessitates private or sensitive configurations, ensure they are managed securely, for instance by using Pulumi's secrets manager.

    Once ready, run pulumi up from the command line to trigger the deployment. The pulumi up command will print out a preview of the changes and prompt for confirmation before proceeding with the deployment. If everything looks correct, confirm the operation, and Pulumi will go ahead and deploy the chart to your cluster.

    In the code exported appUrl, we assume that your Helm chart creates a Kubernetes Service of type LoadBalancer and that you want to retrieve its public endpoint. If your chart doesn't do this, you can remove or modify this export statement as needed.

    Upon successful deployment, Pulumi will output any exported values, like the appUrl, which you can then use to access your deployed service.

    Remember to check the Helm chart's documentation for any prerequisites or specific configurations needed. It's also essential to regularly check the chart version and updates, ensuring your deployments are using the latest versions and patches.
