1. Deploy the pocketbase-helm helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the pocketbase-helm Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, you will utilize the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider. This resource allows you to deploy a Helm chart to a Kubernetes cluster, which in this case would be an OpenShift cluster.

    Here's a high-level overview of the steps you'll follow in Pulumi:

    1. Configure the Pulumi program to use the Kubernetes provider.
    2. Define the Helm chart resource, specifying the pocketbase-helm chart and its settings.
    3. Deploy the Helm chart to the OpenShift cluster.

    Before starting, ensure that you have the following prerequisites in place:

    • An OpenShift cluster with kubectl configured to communicate with it.
    • Helm and Pulumi installed on your local machine.
    • You are authenticated to your OpenShift cluster using oc login or kubectl configured with the correct context.

    Below is the TypeScript Pulumi program for deploying the pocketbase-helm chart:

    import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Create a Kubernetes provider instance for the OpenShift cluster const openshiftProvider = new k8s.Provider('openshiftProvider', { // Make sure `kubeconfig` is properly set to point to your OpenShift cluster // You can specify a `kubeconfig` file explicitly or assume it is in the default location kubeconfig: process.env.KUBECONFIG, }); // Define the Helm chart resource for PocketBase const pocketbaseChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart('pocketbase-helm', { // Set the chart name, repository, and version chart: 'pocketbase-helm', // Replace with your specific Helm chart repository URL repo: 'https://charts.example.com/', // Specify the chart version if needed, otherwise, the latest version will be deployed // version: '1.0.0', // Include any custom values required for the PocketBase Helm chart values: { // Specify values based on the Helm chart's `values.yaml` // For example: // service: { // type: 'ClusterIP', // }, // persistence: { // enabled: true, // }, }, }, { provider: openshiftProvider }); // Export the base URL to access the deployed PocketBase application export const pocketbaseUrl = pocketbaseChart.getResourceProperty( 'v1/Service', 'pocketbase-helm-pocketbase', 'status' ).apply(status => { const ingress = status.loadBalancer.ingress[0]; if (ingress.ip) { return `http://${ingress.ip}`; } return ingress.hostname ? `http://${ingress.hostname}` : undefined; });

    In this program:

    • We import the @pulumi/kubernetes module, which contains the necessary classes and functions to interact with Kubernetes within Pulumi.
    • We create a Kubernetes provider for the OpenShift cluster by providing the kubeconfig that points to the cluster.
    • We instantiate a Chart resource, defining the Helm chart we want to deploy (pocketbase-helm) and the repository where the chart can be found.
    • Within the values property, you can specify any configuration overrides necessary for your PocketBase deployment based on what's available in the Helm chart's values.yaml. Replace the example placeholders with the actual values appropriate for your use case.
    • Lastly, we export a computed value that should resolve to the URL where the PocketBase service is accessible, assuming it's exposed via a LoadBalancer service. If your chart uses a different method to expose services (like a Route on OpenShift), you'll need to adjust the export logic to match that.

    Remember to replace 'https://charts.example.com/' with the actual URL of the repository where the pocketbase-helm chart is hosted, and update the values object with the appropriate values from the Helm chart you are deploying.

    To apply this Pulumi program:

    • Save the code in a file with a .ts extension.
    • Run pulumi up in the directory containing your code to start the deployment process.
    • Follow the on-screen prompts to preview and confirm the deployment.
