1. Deploy the wg-access-server helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine


    To deploy the wg-access-server Helm chart on Linode Kubernetes Engine, you'll need to create a Pulumi program that performs the following steps:

    1. Set up a Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE) cluster using Pulumi's Linode provider.
    2. Install the Helm Chart for the wg-access-server onto the LKE cluster using Pulumi's Kubernetes provider.

    Before you begin, ensure you have the following prerequisites installed and set up:

    • Pulumi CLI
    • Linode CLI with an API token configured

    Here's a TypeScript program to accomplish these tasks:

    import * as linode from "@pulumi/linode"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Create a new Linode Kubernetes Engine cluster const cluster = new linode.LkeCluster("my-cluster", { k8sVersion: "1.22", // Specify the Kubernetes version region: "us-central", // Specify the region for the cluster nodePools: [{ type: "g6-standard-1", // Specify the type of node count: 2, // Specify the number of nodes in the node pool }], }); // Step 2: Use the kubeconfig from the created LKE cluster to interact with it using Pulumi's Kubernetes provider const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify); // Initialize a Kubernetes provider using the kubeconfig from the LKE cluster const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Step 3: Install the wg-access-server Helm chart using the Pulumi Kubernetes provider const wgAccessChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("wg-access-server", { repo: "https://placekitten.github.io/charts/", // Replace with the actual repository URL containing the wg-access-server Helm chart chart: "wg-access-server", version: "0.3.0", // Specify the chart version you want to deploy namespace: "default", // Specify the namespace where the chart should be installed }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the public IP to access wg-access-server export const publicIp = cluster.status.apply(status => status.lkeClusterApiEndpoints.apply(endpoints => endpoints[0].address));


    1. Two packages from Pulumi's library are imported: linode for managing resources in Linode and kubernetes for deploying Helm charts on a Kubernetes cluster.

    2. The linode.LkeCluster resource is created, which indicates that we want Pulumi to provision an LKE cluster with the specified settings. Replace the region, Kubernetes version, node type, and node count as per your requirements.

    3. Then we extract the kubeconfig from the created cluster, which allows us to communicate with the Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi's Kubernetes provider.

    4. We define a k8s.Provider which understands how to interact with our Linode Kubernetes cluster based on the provided kubeconfig.

    5. Using the defined Kubernetes provider, the k8s.helm.v3.Chart resource is used to install the wg-access-server Helm chart. You must replace repo with the actual Helm repository URL that hosts the wg-access-server chart and specify any other values you wish to customize.

    6. The program exports the public IP address that you can use to access the wg-access-server once it is deployed.

    Remember to replace the placeholder values with actual values specific to your use case, especially the Helm chart repository URL (repo). You may also need to customize your Helm chart settings by passing the values property to the Chart resource if necessary.

    You can execute this Pulumi program by running pulumi up in the directory where this code is saved. It will set up the LKE cluster and deploy the Helm chart.
