1. Deploy the shopware helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the Shopware Helm chart on Kubernetes using Pulumi, you’ll need to interact with the Kubernetes API. Pulumi provides a Kubernetes provider that allows you to write code that defines your Kubernetes resources, and in this case, we will be deploying a Helm chart which is a packaged set of Kubernetes resources.

    Here’s how you can deploy a Helm chart using Pulumi:

    1. Ensure that you have Pulumi installed and configured to connect to your Kubernetes cluster.

    2. Ensure you have kubectl installed and configured to interact with your Kubernetes cluster.

    3. Install the required Pulumi Kubernetes package. If using npm, run npm install @pulumi/kubernetes.

    4. Now, you can write your Pulumi program in TypeScript to deploy the Shopware Helm chart.

    The following program demonstrates how to deploy a Helm chart by using Pulumi's Kubernetes provider:

    • We start by importing the required Pulumi Kubernetes library.
    • Then we create a new Helm chart resource. We specify the chart name, version (if you know the version you would like to deploy), and any custom values in the values property which overwrite the default settings in the Helm chart.
    • You can optionally specify the repository where the chart is located using the repo property.

    Let's walk through a Pulumi program in TypeScript:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Deploying a Shopware Helm chart to a Kubernetes cluster. const shopwareChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("shopware", { // You can specify the namespace where you want to deploy the chart. // If not specified, it will use the default namespace. namespace: "default", // Replace with the correct repository URL and chart name. repo: "https://charts.shopware.com/", chart: "shopware", // Specify the version of the chart you want to deploy. // It's recommended to pin the chart version for production use. version: "1.2.3", // Replace with the actual chart version you intend to deploy. // Optionally, you can provide custom values to the Helm chart. // This would be necessary if you need to specify values that are different // from the chart's defaults, such as user credentials, service types, etc. values: { // Example of setting a value: // service: { // type: "LoadBalancer", // }, }, }); // Export the base URL for the Shopware application once the service is up and accessible. export const shopwareUrl = shopwareChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "shopware", "status").apply( status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname || status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip );

    Ensure you replace the repo, chart, and version properties with the correct details for the Shopware Helm chart. These values can typically be found in the documentation of the Helm chart you are trying to deploy.

    In the above code:

    • We defined a Helm chart resource named shopwareChart.
    • We're using .getResourceProperty to extract information from the created resources - specifically looking for the LoadBalancer service's ingress hostname/IP.
    • We export shopwareUrl which will be the URL you can use to access your Shopware installation after deployment.

    Run this program by executing pulumi up in the same directory as your code. Make sure to have access to a running Kubernetes cluster and that your kubectl is configured correctly to communicate with it. Pulumi will use your default kubeconfig context to interact with your cluster.

    Remember to inspect the output of the pulumi up command to review and confirm the changes before they are applied to your cluster. After confirming the changes, Pulumi will proceed to deploy the specified Helm chart into the connected Kubernetes cluster. Once the deployment is successful, Pulumi will output the exported shopwareUrl.
