1. Deploy the mautrix-instagram helm chart on Digital Ocean Kubernetes Service


    To deploy the mautrix-instagram Helm chart on DigitalOcean Kubernetes Service, we'll go through the steps needed, and I'll explain the pieces of Pulumi TypeScript code involved in accomplishing this task.

    Here's a breakdown of the tasks we're about to perform:

    1. Create a Kubernetes cluster in DigitalOcean.
    2. Deploy the Helm chart to the newly created cluster.

    Creating a DigitalOcean Kubernetes Cluster

    To create a Kubernetes cluster on DigitalOcean, we'll use the digitalocean.KubernetesCluster resource. We'll need to specify details such as the region, version, node size, and the number of nodes.

    Deploying a Helm chart

    For deploying a Helm chart onto a Kubernetes cluster, we use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource from Pulumi's kubernetes package. This allows us to specify the chart we want to install, along with any values overrides we may need.

    Let's write our Pulumi program to implement these steps:

    import * as pulumi from '@pulumi/pulumi'; import * as digitalocean from '@pulumi/digitalocean'; import * as k8s from '@pulumi/kubernetes'; // Step 1: Create a DigitalOcean Kubernetes Cluster const cluster = new digitalocean.KubernetesCluster("do-cluster", { region: "nyc1", // You can update this to the region that is relevant to you version: "1.21.5-do.0", // Example Kubernetes version, ensure it's available in your selected region nodePool: { name: "default-pool", size: "s-2vcpu-2gb", // This is the smallest node size. Change as per your requirements. nodeCount: 2, // The number of nodes you want to have in your default pool. } }); // Export the Kubeconfig so we can access the cluster export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeConfigs[0].rawConfig; // Once the cluster is provisioned, we can use this Kubeconfig to create a Kubernetes provider instance. const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("do-k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Step 2: Deploy the mautrix-instagram Helm chart const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("mautrix-instagram-chart", { chart: "mautrix-instagram", // The name of the chart. This assumes the chart is available in the used Helm repo values: { // You can provide any values specific to your helm chart here. }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Output the status of the Helm deployment export const helmChartStatus = chart.status;


    • We import the necessary Pulumi packages: pulumi for core functionality, digitalocean for the DigitalOcean provider, and kubernetes for working with Kubernetes resources.
    • We define a digitalocean.KubernetesCluster resource which describes the cluster's configuration, such as its region, version, and characteristics of the node pool.
    • We then export the kubeconfig output of the cluster resource, which contains the necessary information to connect to your Kubernetes cluster with tools like kubectl.
    • A k8s.Provider is created using the kubeconfig to interact with the cluster. We provide it as a parameter to the Helm chart so that Pulumi knows which Kubernetes cluster we want to deploy our chart to.
    • We deploy the mautrix-instagram Helm chart using k8s.helm.v3.Chart. Here you can specify specific values to customize the Helm chart.

    Remember, after this program is executed with Pulumi, you would have a DigitalOcean Kubernetes cluster running and the mautrix-instagram Helm chart deployed to it. Please ensure that the Helm chart name and values are correct and that the chart is available in your Helm repository. If it's a custom or private chart, you should also specify the repository URL in the chart resource options.

    To run this program, save it to a file, say index.ts, and then execute it using the Pulumi CLI by running pulumi up. Ensure that you have Pulumi installed and configured with DigitalOcean access token.
