1. Deploy the frontier-squid helm chart on AWS EKS


    To deploy the frontier-squid Helm chart on an AWS EKS cluster using Pulumi, you will need to perform the following steps:

    1. Create an EKS cluster using the Pulumi AWS provider. In this example, we'll use the awsx package, which provides a higher-level abstraction over AWS resources, including EKS.
    2. Use the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to deploy the frontier-squid Helm chart to the EKS cluster you've created.

    Below is a detailed TypeScript program that demonstrates these steps:

    import * as eks from "@pulumi/eks"; import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Step 1: Create an EKS cluster // This will create an EKS cluster with the default configurations which includes a default node pool (the set of EC2 instances) const cluster = new eks.Cluster("my-cluster"); // Step 2: Deploy the frontier-squid Helm chart // This assumes the Helm chart is available in a reachable Helm repository const squidChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("frontier-squid", { // It's important to run this Helm chart within the EKS cluster we created // Providing the kubeconfig from the created EKS cluster is necessary for Pulumi to know where to deploy the Helm chart kubeConfig: cluster.kubeconfig.apply(JSON.stringify), chart: "frontier-squid", // If the chart is in a specific repository, specify it with `repo` property // Otherwise, Pulumi will attempt to find it in the default stable repository version: "desired-chart-version", // specify the chart version here // Values to configure the Helm chart values: { // ... any required values for the frontier-squid chart }, namespace: "default" // target namespace for deployment }, { provider: cluster.provider }); // Export the cluster's kubeconfig and the service endpoint export const kubeconfig = cluster.kubeconfig; export const squidServiceEndpoint = squidChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "frontier-squid", "status") .apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname || status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    This program consists of two major parts:

    • eks.Cluster: This line creates a new EKS cluster. The awsx package is designed to simplify the cluster creation process by automatically setting up the VPC, subnets, and node group along with other necessary configurations.

      • You can find more information about the EKS cluster component here.
    • k8s.helm.v3.Chart: This line creates a new Helm chart deployment in the just-created EKS cluster. The frontier-squid chart is fetched from the specified Helm repository (if any) and deployed with the provided configuration values.

      • You can find more information about deploying Helm charts with Pulumi here.

    The configuration values for the Helm chart would be specific to frontier-squid and will need to be filled in accordance with the Helm chart's documentation and your specific requirements.

    After you've written this code into a index.ts file of a Pulumi project, you can deploy the infrastructure with the following Pulumi CLI commands:

    pulumi up # Preview and deploy changes

    Remember to configure AWS credentials and Pulumi before running the pulumi CLI. You will also need to have kubectl installed to interact with your Pulumi-managed EKS cluster directly. To access your cluster through kubectl, you can use the exported kubeconfig file from the pulumi stack output.
