Deploy the zotero helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)TypeScript
If you want to deploy the Zotero Helm chart on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), you'll need to accomplish a few high-level steps:
- Create an AKS cluster: Use Azure's Kubernetes service to create and manage a Kubernetes cluster.
- Install the Helm chart: Once the cluster is up and running, you can deploy applications on top of it using Helm charts. Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that simplifies the deployment of applications.
In Pulumi, you can achieve this using the
Below is a Pulumi program written in TypeScript that performs the following steps:
- Provision an AKS cluster using the
- Install the Zotero Helm chart to the AKS cluster using the
The Zotero Helm chart is not included in the Pulumi Registry Results, so we will have to use a generic Helm Chart installation method. Note that to install Helm charts, the Helm CLI needs to be installed on the machine where you are running Pulumi, or you need to configure Pulumi to fetch remote charts if you have information on where the Zotero Helm Chart repository is located.
Here's how you would write the program:
- We start by importing the required Pulumi packages.
- We create an Azure resource group to contain our AKS cluster resources.
- We set up an Azure AD application and service principal for AKS.
- We create a new AKS cluster with the
azure.containerservice.KubernetesClusterclass, providing details like the agent pool profile, which dictates the number of nodes, the size of disk, the OS type, and the VM size.
- After the AKS cluster is created, we extract the kubeconfig, which is needed to interact with the Kubernetes cluster.
- Then, we define a Helm chart resource using the
k8s.helm.v3.Chartclass, specifying the name of the chart and the repository URL. You must provide the version number and the correct repository URL for the Zotero chart.
- Finally, we export the name of the AKS cluster and the name of the Helm release.
Note: Before running this code, you will need to replace the placeholder values, especially
ssh-rsa AAAAB3..., with your actual SSH public key for the AKS nodes, and provide the correct values for the Helm chart version and repository URL.
Remember that running Pulumi programs will indeed provision resources in the cloud and incur costs. Always review the documentation and understand the resources and their costs before you execute the deployments.
Additionally, Pulumi requires you to log in to run deployments, so make sure you have performed
pulumi loginand set up Azure credentials on your machine.
