1. Deploy the zebrands helm chart on Rancher


    Deploying a Helm chart on Rancher using Pulumi involves several steps including setting up the necessary configuration for connecting to the Rancher instance, installing the rancher2 provider, and then using the appropriate resources to deploy a Helm chart.

    In the following TypeScript program, I will first import the necessary Pulumi and Rancher2 packages. Note that you need to have Pulumi installed and configured with your desired cloud provider credentials. Also, ensure you have access to a Rancher server and the credentials for it.

    We will use two main resources from the rancher2 package:

    1. rancher2.Cluster represents the Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher. You should have an existing cluster or create one where the Helm chart will be deployed.

    2. rancher2.AppV2 represents a deployment of an application, which corresponds to the Helm chart we wish to install. You will need to provide the chart name, version, and other configurations.

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; // Configuration variables for the Rancher server const config = new pulumi.Config(); const rancherUrl = config.require("rancherUrl"); // The URL for your Rancher instance const rancherAccessKey = config.requireSecret("rancherAccessKey"); // Your Rancher access key const rancherSecretKey = config.requireSecret("rancherSecretKey"); // Your Rancher secret key const clusterId = config.require("clusterId"); // The ID of the cluster to deploy the Helm chart on const namespace = config.require("namespace"); // The namespace in Rancher where the Helm chart should be deployed // Set up the Rancher provider const rancherProvider = new rancher2.Provider("rancherProvider", { apiUrl: rancherUrl, accessKey: rancherAccessKey, secretKey: rancherSecretKey, }); // Deploy the zebrands Helm chart const zebrandsApp = new rancher2.AppV2("zebrands-helm-chart", { clusterId: clusterId, namespaceId: namespace, repoName: "zebrands-repo", // The name of the Helm repository chartName: "zebrands", // The name of the chart in the repository chartVersion: "1.0.0", // The version of the chart to deploy }, { provider: rancherProvider }); // Export the application name export const appName = zebrandsApp.name;

    Please remember to replace rancherUrl, rancherAccessKey, rancherSecretKey, clusterId, and namespace with your Rancher instance's actual values. You must also specify the correct Helm repository where your zebrands Helm chart is hosted, as well as the chart's name and version.

    The rancher2.AppV2 resource is responsible for deploying the Helm chart to the specified namespace in the cluster managed by Rancher. By specifying the chart name, chart version, and repo name, Pulumi knows precisely what Helm chart to deploy.

    Once you have written this program, you can run it using the Pulumi CLI commands pulumi up to create or update resources according to your Ts code and pulumi destroy to clean up resources.

    If you run into any issues or have questions about the code and its function, feel free to ask for clarification.
