1. Deploy the tekton-pipelines helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the tekton-pipelines Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you will use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource. This resource is a high-level component that encapsulates the deployment of Helm charts.

    Below, I'll walk you through a Pulumi program written in TypeScript that accomplishes this. The program assumes that you have Pulumi installed, your Kubernetes cluster is up and accessible via kubectl on your local machine, and that your kubeconfig is correctly configured to communicate with your Kubernetes cluster.

    First, we will start with the necessary imports:

    • @pulumi/pulumi: The core Pulumi SDK.
    • @pulumi/kubernetes: The Pulumi Kubernetes SDK, which provides resources to interact with your Kubernetes cluster.

    Following the imports, we'll instantiate the Chart resource. You'll need to provide it with the name of the Helm chart (tekton-pipelines) and any other required parameters such as the version of the chart, the repository where the chart is hosted, and the set of values to configure the chart.

    Make sure to replace <YOUR-NAMESPACE> with the Kubernetes namespace where you want to deploy the Tekton Pipelines.

    Here is the code:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; const tektonNamespace = "<YOUR-NAMESPACE>"; // Replace with your desired namespace, or remove to deploy in the default namespace // Deploy the tekton-pipelines Helm chart into the Kubernetes cluster const tektonChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("tekton-pipelines", { chart: "tekton-pipelines", version: "0.28.1", // You can specify a different version of the chart here if needed fetchOpts: { repo: "https://tekton.dev/charts", // Ensure this is the correct repository for Tekton Pipelines }, namespace: tektonNamespace, // Include additional configuration for the chart here as needed. // For example, if you need to set custom values, do so with the 'values' field: // values: { // key: "value", // ... // } }, { provider: /* Your Kubernetes provider if it's not the default one */ }); // Export the name of the namespace Tekton was deployed to export const namespaceName = tektonNamespace; // Export the status of the Helm chart deployment export const tektonChartStatus = tektonChart.status;

    This Pulumi program declares a new Tekton Pipelines chart instance to be deployed in the specified namespace. The export statements can be used to output useful information about the deployed resources.

    The namespaceName will output the namespace where Tekton Pipelines has been deployed, and the tektonChartStatus will provide the status of the Helm chart deployment, which is helpful for understanding the state of the resources.

    To apply this Pulumi code, save it in a file named index.ts, and then run the following commands:

    pulumi stack init # Initializes a new stack for your project pulumi up # Review and confirm the changes to be applied

    These commands will provision the resources declared in your code by creating a new stack for your project and then deploying the changes. The pulumi up command provides a preview of the actions that Pulumi will take and prompts you to confirm them before proceeding.

    The console output will provide you with the results of the deployment, including any exported values.
