1. Deploy the squidex helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the Squidex Helm chart on Kubernetes using Pulumi, you will need to have a Kubernetes cluster set up and a Kubeconfig file pointing to this cluster. Squidex is an open-source headless content management system (CMS), and Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that uses charts to define, install, and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes applications.

    To accomplish this, you will use the kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource provided by Pulumi's Kubernetes provider. This resource allows you to deploy a Helm chart to your Kubernetes cluster.

    Here's a Pulumi program in TypeScript to deploy the Squidex Helm chart. Please ensure that you are using the correct chart repository and chart name when you set the chart and repo properties. This example assumes you're deploying squidex/squidex but make sure to verify the official details from the Squidex Helm chart documentation or from Helm Hub.

    Before running the program, ensure that you have Pulumi installed, and you are logged into your Pulumi account using pulumi login. Also, ensure that kubectl is configured to communicate with your Kubernetes cluster by setting the KUBECONFIG environment variable or by other means.

    import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; const squidexChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("squidex", { chart: "squidex", version: "0.1.0", // Replace with the desired chart version fetchOpts: { repo: "https://helm.squidex.io", // Replace with Squidex's Helm chart repository URL }, values: { // Set chart values here }, // Optionally, you can specify a namespace // If not specified, Pulumi will use the default namespace namespace: "default", }); export const squidexChartName = squidexChart.metadata.name;

    Replace 0.1.0 with the version of the Squidex Helm chart that you wish to deploy, and ensure that the repo URL is correct.

    This program defines a Chart resource named squidex which Pulumi will use to deploy the Squidex app onto your currently configured Kubernetes cluster.

    The values property is a place where you can override default Helm chart values. This is useful if you need to configure things like persistence, replicas, resource requests and limits, and other app settings. You can find these options on the official Squidex Helm chart documentation.

    The namespace property, which is optional, specifies the Kubernetes namespace where Pulumi should deploy the chart. If you don't specify it, Pulumi defaults to deploying in the default namespace.

    Finally, we're exporting the chart name (squidexChartName) for easy access, such as for querying the deployed resources once the Pulumi program has successfully executed.

    After writing your code, you can deploy your infrastructure with the following Pulumi CLI commands:

    pulumi up

    This will prompt you for confirmation before proceeding to deploy the chart to your cluster.

    Make sure to thoroughly review the output of pulumi up before confirming, as it will detail all the changes that will be made to your infrastructure, ensuring that there are no surprises.

    After deployment, if you want to remove the deployed chart, you can do so by running:

    pulumi destroy

    This command will remove all resources created by the Pulumi program from your Kubernetes cluster.
