1. Deploy the billet helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the billet Helm chart on Kubernetes using Pulumi, you need to install the Pulumi CLI and have a Kubernetes cluster already configured to which Pulumi can deploy resources. You also need to have Node.js and npm installed to execute the Pulumi program written in TypeScript.

    Helm charts are a great way to package complex Kubernetes applications. With Pulumi, you can deploy Helm charts directly within your infrastructure-as-code (IaC) configuration. In this Pulumi program, we will use the @pulumi/kubernetes package to interact with Kubernetes and to deploy a Helm chart.

    To deploy a Helm chart, you will typically need the following pieces of information:

    • Chart name: The name of the chart you want to deploy.
    • Repository: The Helm chart repository where the chart is located.
    • Version: The version of the chart to deploy.
    • Release name: A unique name for the Helm release.
    • Values: Custom configurations for the chart if needed.

    It's important to note that 'billet' is not a standard Helm chart, so for the purposes of this example, I'll assume there's a billet Helm chart available in a repository, and I'll include placeholder values for the repo and chart properties which you should replace with actual values.

    The program below deploys the billet chart with a release name 'billet-release' (you can choose any name you want) to the default namespace (you can specify a namespace if needed).

    Here's the TypeScript program:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the Helm chart, repository, and version to deploy. const billetChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("billet-release", { // Replace with the actual repository URL. repo: "https://example.com/helm-charts", // Replace with the actual chart name if different. chart: "billet", // Specify the version of the chart to deploy. version: "1.2.3", // Custom values for the Helm chart. values: { // Customize your Helm chart values here. // For example: // service: { // type: "ClusterIP", // } }, // Uncomment and update the namespace if needed. // namespace: "custom-namespace", }); // Export the deployed chart's status export const billetChartStatus = billetChart.status;

    Before running this program:

    1. Replace https://example.com/helm-charts and billet with the actual repository URL and the name of the Helm chart.
    2. Install Node.js and npm: Ensure that Node.js and npm are installed on your local machine.
    3. Install Pulumi: Follow the instructions at https://www.pulumi.com/docs/get-started/ to install the Pulumi CLI and set up your account.
    4. Configure Kubernetes: Ensure your kubeconfig file is properly set up to connect to your Kubernetes cluster. Pulumi uses this file to deploy resources to your cluster.
    5. Customize values: If the billet Helm chart requires specific configuration, customize the values object with the properties expected by the chart.

    To run this program:

    • Navigate to the folder containing your Pulumi program.
    • Run npm install @pulumi/pulumi @pulumi/kubernetes to install the necessary Pulumi packages.
    • Run pulumi up to preview and deploy the changes.

    After executing pulumi up, Pulumi will show you a preview of the actions that will be performed. If everything looks good, you can confirm the deployment, and Pulumi will deploy the Helm chart to your Kubernetes cluster.

    You can find additional details about deploying Helm charts with Pulumi in the Kubernetes provider documentation:
