1. Deploy the baget helm chart on Opensshift


    To deploy the BaGet Helm chart on an OpenShift cluster using Pulumi, we need to utilize the kubernetes.helm.sh/v3.Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. This allows us to deploy Helm charts within a Kubernetes cluster, which OpenShift is built on.

    For the purpose of this guide, I'm assuming that:

    • You have an existing OpenShift cluster.
    • You have installed Pulumi CLI and set up your Pulumi account.
    • You have kubectl configured to communicate with your OpenShift cluster.
    • You have Helm chart details for BaGet, such as the chart version and any necessary configuration values.

    Here's a step-by-step TypeScript program using Pulumi to deploy the BaGet Helm chart onto OpenShift:

    1. Import necessary packages.
    2. Create a new Kubernetes Chart resource for BaGet.
    3. Pass any configuration values required by the BaGet Helm chart.
    4. Export any important outcome of the deployment (like the service URL).

    Below is the Pulumi TypeScript program:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the BaGet Helm chart details. const bagetChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("baget", { // BaGet Helm chart repository. repo: "https://example.com/helm-charts", // Replace with actual repository URL chart: "baget", // Optionally, specify the version of the chart to deploy. version: "1.0.0", // Replace with desired chart version // Pass configuration values to the Helm chart. values: { service: { type: "ClusterIP", // Use ClusterIP for internal use or LoadBalancer for external access }, // Add any other required/optional configurations needed by the BaGet Helm chart. }, // Specify the namespace to deploy into, if not the 'default' namespace. namespace: "baget-namespace", // Replace with the namespace of your choice }, { // It is recommended to not await the completion of resources unless necessary // due to potential side effects, like deadlocks or unintended dependencies. // However, if you need to ensure that the release is fully deployed before // marking the resource as created, uncomment the line below. // skipAwait: false, }); // You can export output values from the Helm chart if needed, for example, // service URL or other status information. The exact outputs will depend on // the chart itself and how it is configured. // Uncomment the line below to export a value from the chart. You might need // to adjust the output based on the BaGet chart's output values. // export const bagetServiceUrl = bagetChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "baget", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    Explanation of the code:

    • import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes";: This line imports the Kubernetes provider package from Pulumi.

    • const bagetChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("baget", {...}): This line defines the Helm chart resource for BaGet. We're creating a new instance of the Chart resource, which represents the BaGet Helm chart deployment.

    • repo: The URL of the Helm chart repository where the BaGet chart is hosted. Replace the placeholder with the actual repository URL.

    • chart: The name of the chart in the repository. In our case, this would be "baget".

    • version: This optional field defines which version of the Helm chart you want to install. It's best to specify a version to ensure that your deployment is repeatable.

    • values: The configuration for the Helm chart. Replace the placeholder values with your own configuration. These values will be passed to the Helm chart when it is deployed. The values provided here should match the available configuration options for the BaGet Helm chart.

    • namespace: The namespace in Kubernetes where you want the BaGet chart to be deployed. If not provided, it defaults to the "default" namespace.

    • skipAwait: Sometimes, for applications that take a long time to start up, you might want to continue with other Pulumi deployments without waiting for the chart to be fully ready. Comment or uncomment this line based on your needs.

    • export const bagetServiceUrl: This line is commented out, but you can uncomment and modify it to export a specific value from the Helm chart after deployment, such as the URL to access the BaGet service.

    You should customize values and namespace as per your specific requirements and configuration for BaGet.

    Please replace "https://example.com/helm-charts" with the actual Helm repository URL where the BaGet chart is hosted, and set the appropriate chart version.

    Make sure to install @pulumi/kubernetes package using npm or yarn if you haven't already:

    npm install @pulumi/kubernetes


    yarn add @pulumi/kubernetes

    After setting up the program, you can deploy this Pulumi program by running pulumi up in your terminal. Pulumi will perform the deployment according to the steps defined in this program.
