1. Deploy the smtp-fake-server helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the smtp-fake-server Helm chart on AWS EKS, you'll first need to create an EKS Cluster using Pulumi's EKS package, which simplifies EKS deployment. Then you'll use the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to deploy the Helm chart to the created EKS cluster.

    Here's how to achieve this step by step:

    1. Set up an EKS Cluster: We will start by defining an EKS cluster using @pulumi/eks.

    2. Deploy the Helm Chart: Once we have the cluster set up, we will deploy the smtp-fake-server Helm chart using @pulumi/kubernetes.

    Below is a TypeScript program that accomplishes these steps:

    import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create an EKS cluster. const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster", { instanceType: "t2.medium", desiredCapacity: 2, minSize: 1, maxSize: 2, storageClasses: "gp2", deployDashboard: false, }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; // Create a Kubernetes provider instance that uses our EKS cluster from above. const provider = new k8s.Provider("my-provider", { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), }); // Deploy the `smtp-fake-server` helm chart into the EKS cluster. const smtpFakeServerChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart( "smtp-fake-server", { chart: "smtp-fake-server", version: "1.0.0", // Replace with the actual chart version fetchOpts: { repo: "http://helm-repository-url/charts", // Replace with the actual Helm repo URL }, }, { provider: provider } ); // Export the necessary values, like the EKS endpoint export const clusterEndpoint = cluster.core.endpoint; // NOTE: The exact values for `chart` and `fetchOpts.repo` will depend on the Helm chart repository details. // Ensure to replace `http://helm-repository-url/charts` with the repository URL where the smtp-fake-server chart is hosted.

    This code does the following:

    • Initializes a new EKS cluster with a specified instance type and scaling parameters.
    • Exports the kubeconfig which allows you to interact with your cluster using kubectl.
    • Creates a Kubernetes provider which points to the newly created EKS cluster.
    • Deploys the smtp-fake-server Helm chart using the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. The chart and fetchOpts.repo options should be set according to where your Helm chart is hosted.

    Make sure to replace "1.0.0" with the actual version of the smtp-fake-server chart and "http://helm-repository-url/charts" with the appropriate Helm chart repository URL.

    After this program is executed with Pulumi, the smtp-fake-server helm chart will be deployed in your AWS EKS cluster, and you can then configure your applications to use the STMP server for email delivery testing.

    To run this Pulumi program:

    • Install Pulumi CLI and set up the AWS provider. Instructions can be found in the Pulumi documentation.
    • Install Node.js and npm to be able to run a TypeScript program.
    • Save the script into a file index.ts.
    • Run npm install @pulumi/eks @pulumi/kubernetes to install the necessary Pulumi packages.
    • Run pulumi up to deploy your infrastructure.
