1. Deploy the tks-info helm chart on Rancher


    To deploy the tks-info Helm chart on Rancher using Pulumi, you'd need to work through several steps:

    1. Set up Rancher and obtain access to your Rancher instance.
    2. Add the Helm chart repository to Rancher if it's not already present.
    3. Deploy the Helm chart using Pulumi.

    Here's how you could do this using Pulumi in TypeScript. You'll want to make sure you have all required permissions and that the tks-info chart is available in the Helm repository that is known to your Rancher cluster.

    First, we need to begin with the necessary imports and setup. Pulumi manages resources in a stack, and each stack is tied to a specific cloud environment. The following TypeScript program assumes that a connection to your Rancher instance is already configured.

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // We assume that the following values are provided or well-known: // - The Rancher API URL. // - An Access Token or credentials to authenticate with Rancher. // - The Cluster ID where the Helm chart should be deployed. // - The namespace (in Kubernetes) where you want to deploy the Helm chart. // Authenticate to Rancher. This should be set up beforehand and often // involves creating a ServiceAccount with the necessary permissions and // then getting a kubeconfig file that Pulumi can use. // We'll use the K8s provider to configure how Pulumi interacts with the Rancher cluster. const rancherK8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("rancherK8sProvider", { kubeconfig: "<YOUR RANCHER KUBECONFIG HERE>", }); // Ensure a namespace exists for your Helm chart. // This will create a new namespace where your Helm chart will be deployed // unless the namespace already exists. const ns = new k8s.core.v1.Namespace("tks-info-namespace", { metadata: { name: "tks-info-ns" }, }, { provider: rancherK8sProvider }); // Now we will add the Helm chart repository in Rancher. // Replace `<CHART_REPO_URL>` with the actual URL to the Helm repository // where the `tks-info` chart is hosted. const tksChartRepo = new rancher2.CatalogV2("tks-info-repo", { clusterId: "<YOUR RANCHER CLUSTER ID HERE>", url: "<CHART_REPO_URL>", name: "tks-info-repo" }); // Deploy the helm chart by creating a `Chart` resource with the required // configuration. const tksChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("tks-info-chart", { chart: "tks-info", version: "<CHART_VERSION_HERE>", // Specify the version of the chart to use. namespace: ns.metadata.name, fetchOpts:{ repo: "<CHART_REPO_URL>", // Helm repository URL }, // Add any values here you wish to override in the Helm chart. values: { // ... your custom values ... }, }, { provider: rancherK8sProvider, dependsOn: [tksChartRepo, ns] }); // Export the namespace name and chart name so that they are easily // accessible after deployment. export const namespaceName = ns.metadata.name; export const chartName = tksChart.metadata.name;

    Replace <YOUR RANCHER KUBECONFIG HERE> with the kubeconfig contents or path to your Rancher cluster's kubeconfig file. This is used to authenticate with your Kubernetes cluster in Rancher. You also need to replace <YOUR RANCHER CLUSTER ID HERE> with the ID of the Rancher cluster where you want to deploy the Helm chart, and <CHART_REPO_URL> with the URL of the Helm repository containing the tks-info chart. The version of the Helm chart you wish to deploy should be specified in place of <CHART_VERSION_HERE>.

    After replacing the placeholders with your specific details, run the Pulumi program to deploy the Helm chart to your Rancher cluster. The export statements at the bottom of the script will output the namespace and chart name after the Pulumi up command has been executed in the CLI, which could be useful for debugging or interacting with the Helm chart post-deployment.

    Remember, to deploy via Pulumi, you will need to run the command pulumi up from a terminal in the same directory as your Pulumi program. This will prompt Pulumi to perform the deployment according to the defined program.
