1. Deploy the quay helm chart on Kubernetes


    Deploying Helm charts on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi involves several steps:

    1. Setting up the Kubernetes Provider: We need to ensure Pulumi can communicate with your Kubernetes cluster. This is done by setting up the Kubernetes provider and providing it with the necessary access credentials, usually from the kubeconfig file.

    2. Using the helm.sh/v3.Chart Resource: Pulumi provides a resource type specifically for deploying Helm charts. The helm.sh/v3.Chart resource represents a Helm chart in a Kubernetes cluster.

    3. Configuring the Helm Chart: We need to specify the details about the Helm chart we are deploying, such as its name, version, repository, and any custom values we want to provide to tailor the deployment to our needs.

    Below is a complete Pulumi program that shows how to deploy the Quay Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster:

    import * as kubernetes from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // This program demonstrates how to deploy the Quay Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster. // Define the Helm chart you want to deploy const quayChart = new kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart("quay", { chart: "quay", // Replace with the correct Helm chart name if it's different repo: "quay", // Replace with the correct Helm chart repository if it's different namespace: "default", // Specify the namespace where you want to deploy Quay // Define any custom values you want to pass to the Helm chart values: { // Example custom value; replace these with the actual configuration needed for Quay someValue: "someConfiguration", // Include any other custom values you need; // refer to the Quay Helm chart documentation for available options }, }); // Export any endpoints or other properties you wish to consume from the deployed chart export const quayEndpoint = quayChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "quay-quay", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname); // When using Pulumi to manage your infrastructure, you can simply run `pulumi up` // to deploy the resources described in the program. Any changes you make in the future // to the configuration will be detected by Pulumi, and only the necessary changes will // be applied when you run `pulumi up` again.

    In this program:

    • We import the necessary Pulumi Kubernetes library.
    • We create a new helm.v3.Chart resource and provide a name for the Helm release.
    • We specify the Helm chart repository and chart name, as well as the namespace in which to deploy the chart. For the Quay Helm chart, this means providing the correct chart name and repository. You may need to update these values to reflect the actual names used in the Helm repository where the Quay chart is hosted.
    • We provide an example of how custom values are set in the values property. This object's keys and values should reflect the actual configuration options required by Quay Helm chart. You will need to replace these with the specific configuration you need.
    • We include an export statement, which will output useful properties of the deployed chart, such as the endpoint hostname. You'll need to adjust this based on what you want to obtain as output from your deployment.

    To deploy this program:

    1. Ensure you have Pulumi installed and configured for your Kubernetes cluster.
    2. Save this code into a TypeScript file, for example, index.ts.
    3. Run the following commands:
      pulumi stack init quay-deployment pulumi up
    4. Pulumi CLI will display the proposed changes and request confirmation before proceeding with the deployment.
    5. Once confirmed, Pulumi will deploy the Helm chart into your Kubernetes cluster.
    6. After completion, use the endpoint export from the program, if applicable, to access your Quay registry.

    Make sure to refer to the helm.sh/v3.Chart documentation for more details.
