1. Deploy the fr24feeder helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the fr24feeder Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, you will need to use the @pulumi/kubernetes package, which allows you to write Pulumi programs that deploy resources to Kubernetes clusters. Since OpenShift is Kubernetes-based, you can use this package to interact with it as well.

    Below are the steps you'd typically follow to deploy a Helm chart to OpenShift using Pulumi:

    1. Set up a Pulumi project and stack if you haven't already.
    2. Install the required Pulumi package for Kubernetes.
    3. Write the TypeScript code to deploy your Helm chart using Pulumi's Helm support.

    For the purpose of this guide, I'll focus on step 3. We'll be using the Chart resource from @pulumi/kubernetes/helm/v3, which represents a Helm chart in a Pulumi program.

    Here is how you can write a Pulumi program in TypeScript to deploy the fr24feeder Helm chart:

    1. Install @pulumi/kubernetes: You need this package to work with Kubernetes resources. You can install it using npm:

      npm install @pulumi/kubernetes
    2. Write your Pulumi Program: Define your Kubernetes and Helm chart resources within a Pulumi program.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the OpenShift cluster details if not already configured through Pulumi's Kubernetes provider. const provider = new k8s.Provider("openshift-provider", { kubeconfig: "<YOUR_KUBECONFIG_CONTENTS>" }); // Deploy the 'fr24feeder' helm chart to the OpenShift cluster. const fr24feederChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("fr24feeder", { chart: "fr24feeder", // You may have to specify the 'repo' property with the URL of the helm repository // that contains the 'fr24feeder' chart if it is not in the default Helm repository list. // repo: "<URL_OF_THE_HELM_REPOSITORY>", version: "1.0.0", // specify the version of the chart namespace: "default", // specify the namespace where the chart should be deployed }, { provider }); // Optional: Export any resources that the Helm chart creates or that you may want to access from outside. export const serviceUrl = fr24feederChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "fr24feeder-service", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    This Pulumi program will do the following when executed:

    • It defines the provider configuration for OpenShift, which requires your cluster's kubeconfig. You should replace <YOUR_KUBECONFIG_CONTENTS> with the actual configuration of your OpenShift cluster.
    • It then creates a new Helm chart resource for 'fr24feeder'. Since the Helm chart for fr24feeder may be found in a custom repository, you may need to specify the repo field to point to its URL. Replace <URL_OF_THE_HELM_REPOSITORY> with the URL of the Helm chart's repository if it's not available in stable Helm chart repositories that Pulumi is configured with. If you are deploying a public chart, the repo field can be omitted.
    • Lastly, it exports the service URL of the fr24feeder, assuming the Helm chart creates a Service named fr24feeder-service with a LoadBalancer. This exported URL could be used to access the fr24feeder application outside the cluster.

    Please note that you must replace placeholder values with actual information from your OpenShift cluster environment and fr24feeder Helm chart details.

    To run this Pulumi program:

    1. Save the above code to a file named index.ts.
    2. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy the changes.

    When executed, Pulumi will call into the Kubernetes API on your OpenShift cluster and deploy the Helm chart based on the configuration defined in your TypeScript code.
