1. Deploy the frps helm chart on Rancher


    Deploying a Helm chart in a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster involves setting up the Rancher environment and then using the Pulumi Rancher2 provider to deploy the chart. Here's a detailed breakdown of the steps that you will follow in the Pulumi TypeScript program:

    1. Create a Rancher Cluster: You will first ensure that you have a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher. You can create one using the rancher2.Cluster resource if you don't already have one.
    2. Create a Namespace: Helm charts are typically deployed within a specific Kubernetes namespace. You will use the rancher2.Namespace resource to create one.
    3. Deploy the Helm Chart: Using the rancher2.AppV2 resource, you will deploy the FRPS (Fast Reverse Proxy Server) Helm chart to the namespace in your Rancher cluster.

    Below is a program written in TypeScript that uses Pulumi to deploy the FRPS Helm chart on a Rancher Kubernetes cluster. This Pulumi program assumes that you have already configured the necessary credentials for Rancher and have access to a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher.

    import * as rancher2 from "@pulumi/rancher2"; // Step 1: Create or select an existing Rancher cluster // Here, you would use the `rancher2.Cluster` resource to create a new cluster or obtain a reference to an existing cluster. // If you have an existing cluster, you could use `getCluster` function to fetch its details. // Step 2: Create a Kubernetes namespace for the FRPS Helm Chart const frpsNamespace = new rancher2.Namespace("frps-namespace", { name: "frps", // Specify the Rancher Project ID associated with the cluster where you want to deploy the namespace projectId: "<your-rancher-project-id>", }); // Step 3: Deploy the FRPS Helm chart const frpsHelmChart = new rancher2.AppV2("frps-helm-chart", { // The name of the helm chart deployment name: "frps", // The cluster where the helm chart should be deployed clusterId: "<your-rancher-cluster-id>", // The namespace in which this App should be deployed; this should match the one created above namespace: frpsNamespace.id, // The Helm repository where the FRPS chart is located repoName: "<helm-chart-repo-name>", // The name of the chart in the repository chartName: "frps", // The version of the chart to deploy chartVersion: "<chart-version>", }); // Export the App name of the deployed Helm chart export const frpsAppName = frpsHelmChart.name;

    Make sure to replace <your-rancher-project-id>, <your-rancher-cluster-id>, <helm-chart-repo-name>, and <chart-version> with actual values applicable to your environment. The projectId and clusterId should be retrieved from your Rancher console or setup.

    This program does the following:

    • It creates a new namespace on Rancher for the frps deployment.
    • It deploys the frps Helm chart in the created namespace.

    Please note, you might not need to create a Rancher cluster if you already have an existing cluster. In that case, you'd fetch the existing cluster details and use them to deploy the Helm chart.

    Remember that the actual deployment will also depend on the values you want to set for the chart, and you would pass them using the values property for the rancher2.AppV2. The values field allows you to provide a map of configurations that the Helm chart accepts.

    For a complete list of properties that you can set on a rancher2.AppV2, please refer to the Rancher2 AppV2 documentation.
