1. Deploy the ark helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the "ark" Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you'll use the Chart resource from Pulumi's Kubernetes provider. The Chart resource allows you to deploy a Helm chart from a repository or a local path. Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that packages multiple Kubernetes resources into a single logical deployment unit called a "chart".

    To begin deploying the ark Helm Chart, first you need to ensure that you have a Kubernetes cluster running and that your kubectl is configured to communicate with it. This configuration is typically found in ~/.kube/config and is used by Pulumi's Kubernetes provider to deploy resources to the correct cluster.

    For this deployment, you'll need to specify the repository URL where the ark chart can be found, and the version of the chart you want to install. You can also provide custom values to the chart by creating a YAML file with your configurations and passing its contents to the values field in the options.

    Below is a complete Pulumi program written in TypeScript that deploys the ark Helm chart:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the ark Helm chart from a remote repository const arkChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ark", { // Replace with the actual repository URL and version that hosts the ark chart repo: "example-repo", chart: "ark", version: "1.0.0", // Replace with the desired chart version // If additional configuration is required, use the 'values' option: // values: { // key1: value1, // key2: value2, // }, }); // Export the ark Chart deployment name export const arkChartName = arkChart.metadata.apply(m => m.name);

    In this program, you create a new instance of k8s.helm.v3.Chart to deploy the ark Helm chart:

    • The repo is set to a placeholder string "example-repo". You'll need to replace it with the actual URL of the repository where the ark Helm chart is hosted.
    • The chart is specified as "ark", which is the name of the chart in the repository.
    • The version field specifies the version of the chart to deploy. Replace "1.0.0" with the version you need.
    • The values field supplies any override values needed for customizing the deployment. This field accepts an object representing the values.yaml file that you would typically use with Helm on the command line.

    To apply this Pulumi program:

    1. Ensure you have Pulumi installed and have set up your Pulumi project.
    2. Have your Kubernetes cluster running and kubectl configured.
    3. Replace the placeholder values in the repo and version fields with actual values corresponding to the ark Helm chart you'd like to deploy.
    4. If necessary, add a values field with an object that contains any required configuration for your ark chart deployment.
    5. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy the changes.

    When you run the pulumi up command, Pulumi will communicate with your Kubernetes cluster and deploy the ark Helm chart specified in the program. If successful, you will see output indicating the resources that were created. The exported arkChartName provides the name of the ark Chart deployment, which you can use to reference and manage it in future Pulumi updates or inquire about its status using kubectl.
