Deploy the zookeeper-exporter helm chart on Linode Kubernetes EngineTypeScript
To deploy a Helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE) using Pulumi, you will need to perform a few steps:
- Configure access to Linode with the necessary credentials.
- Create a Kubernetes cluster on LKE (if you don't have one already).
- Install the Helm chart on the cluster.
For the purpose of this walkthrough, let's assume that you've already configured your Linode provider and have an LKE cluster ready to go. The
@pulumi/kubernetespackage will be used to deploy a Helm chart onto the LKE cluster.
Here's a step-by-step explanation of the Pulumi program you'll be using:
- Setup Pulumi Kubernetes Provider: This uses the Kubernetes provider to interact with your LKE cluster.
- Deploy Helm Chart: This creates a Helm chart resource. We specify the
zookeeper-exporterchart, which can be sourced from a public or private Helm repository, along with any values required for the chart configuration.
- Output the Application URL: If the zookeeper-exporter provides an external endpoint, we can export this as a Pulumi stack output.
Here is the TypeScript program that performs these actions:
In this program, you will need to replace
<Your LKE Cluster Kubeconfig>with the appropriate kubeconfig for your LKE cluster. If the Helm chart is hosted in a Helm repository other than the default, you would provide its URL in the
Remember, once you've written your Pulumi code, you can deploy the chart by running:
This will execute the code, apply your desired state to your cluster, and output any stack exports - such as the URL of the deployed application - to your terminal.
Lastly, to tear down the resources created by the Pulumi program, you can run:
This will remove all resources managed by the program. Always review the resources that will be destroyed carefully before confirming the operation to avoid accidental data loss.
