1. Deploy the slack-notifications-consumer helm chart on Digital Ocean Kubernetes Service


    To deploy the slack-notifications-consumer helm chart on the Digital Ocean Kubernetes Service (DOKS), the following steps and code in Pulumi's TypeScript language will help you accomplish this.

    Firstly, we need to create a Kubernetes cluster on Digital Ocean. Pulumi provides a digitalocean.KubernetesCluster resource to facilitate this, and it allows us to define the specifications of our Kubernetes cluster within our code.

    After setting up the Kubernetes cluster, the next step is to deploy the Helm chart to this cluster. For the Helm chart deployment, we use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from the Kubernetes provider, which represents a Helm chart in a Pulumi program.

    Below is a detailed Pulumi program written in TypeScript that carries out these steps. Comments within the code explain each section and how they fit together to satisfy the deployment requirements.

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as digitalocean from '@pulumi/digitalocean'; import * as kubernetes from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Configure the DigitalOcean provider with the required access token. // This assumes that you have already configured the access token // through the Pulumi CLI or environment variables. const digitalOceanProvider = new digitalocean.Provider('do-provider', {}); // Define the specifications for our Digital Ocean Kubernetes cluster. // You will need to customize the parameters such as 'nodeCount', 'region', // and 'name' to fit your needs. const cluster = new digitalocean.KubernetesCluster('do-cluster', { region: "nyc3", // specify the region for your cluster version: "latest", // use the latest available version of Kubernetes nodePool: { name: "default", // name of the node pool size: "s-2vcpu-2gb", // specify the type of nodes (size) nodeCount: 2, // the number of nodes in the node pool }, }, { provider: digitalOceanProvider }); // Define a Kubernetes provider instance using the kubeconfig from the // newly created Digital Ocean Kubernetes cluster. This provider is used // when deploying resources to the cluster. const k8sProvider = new kubernetes.Provider('do-k8s', { kubeconfig: cluster.kubeConfigs[0].rawConfig, }); // Deploy the 'slack-notifications-consumer' Helm chart to the cluster. // You will need to use the actual 'repo' and 'chart' for your Helm chart. // Additionally, customize 'values' to configure your Helm chart as needed. const slackNotificationsConsumerChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart('slack-notifications-consumer', { // Specify the repository URL for the Helm chart. If your chart is hosted on a chart repository, // provide the URL to that repository here. // For example: repo: 'https://example.com/helm-charts' repo: 'chart-repo-url', // Provide the name of the chart. Replace 'slack-notifications-consumer' with the actual chart name. chart: 'slack-notifications-consumer', // You can specify the values for the chart by adding a 'values' object. // The following is a placeholder that needs to be replaced with actual values. values: { key: 'value', // ... }, // The namespace where the Helm chart will be deployed. If omitted, it defaults to 'default'. namespace: 'default', }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig and the name of the service deployed by the Helm chart. // These exports can be used to interact with the Kubernetes cluster and the deployed service. export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeConfigs[0].rawConfig; export const serviceName = slackNotificationsConsumerChart.getResourceProperty('v1/Service', 'slack-notifications-consumer', 'metadata.name');

    In this program:

    • A new Digital Ocean Kubernetes cluster named do-cluster is created in the nyc3 region with 2 nodes of size s-2vcpu-2gb.
    • Using the cluster's kubeconfig, we instantiate a Pulumi Kubernetes provider (k8sProvider) to interact with our DOKS cluster.
    • Using the Kubernetes provider, the slack-notifications-consumer Helm chart is then deployed to the DOKS cluster with some placeholder values. You should replace 'chart-repo-url' with the actual URL of the chart repository and provide the correct properties in the values object to match the Helm chart's configuration requirements.
    • Finally, the Kubernetes cluster's kubeconfig and the deployed service's name (as provided by the Helm chart) are exported. These can be used to access your cluster and services using kubectl or other Kubernetes tools.

    Please replace placeholders with your specific values and ensure that your Pulumi setup, including the DigitalOcean access tokens and any other prerequisites, is correctly configured.

    To run this Pulumi program, you would use the Pulumi CLI commands. Save the above TypeScript code to a file named index.ts within a Pulumi project directory, then execute the following commands in your terminal:

    pulumi up

    The pulumi up command will preview and deploy your stack's resources. Confirm the deployment when prompted to create the Kubernetes cluster and deploy the Helm chart. After the deployment is complete, you can access the Kubernetes cluster using the kubeconfig output and interact with your deployed Helm chart service using its name.
