1. Deploy the grafana-mixin helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the grafana-mixin Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you'll want to use the Helm Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. This allows you to specify the chart, version, and any custom values you want to apply.

    The Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider is a high-level interface to Helm. It enables you to deploy a Helm chart into a Kubernetes cluster by simply providing the chart name and repository details, without the need for the Helm binary to be installed locally or in your CI/CD environment.

    Here's a brief step-by-step explanation of what you'll need to do:

    1. Create a new Pulumi TypeScript project: This is your starting point, where you will write the code to deploy the chart.

    2. Refer to the Chart class: You will utilize Pulumi's Chart class, which encapsulates Helm Chart deployment logic.

    3. Define the Chart details: Provide the name of the chart, the repository where it's hosted, the version of the chart, and any custom values you want to pass to the Helm chart.

    4. Deploy using Pulumi: Run the Pulumi CLI commands (pulumi up) to execute your code and deploy the Helm chart.

    Below is a Pulumi program in TypeScript that deploys the grafana-mixin Helm chart into a Kubernetes cluster:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the configuration for your Helm chart here. // Substitute the values for `repo` and `chart` with the actual // repository URL and chart name of grafana-mixin. const grafanaMixinChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("grafana-mixin", { // Replace the `repo` URL with the actual Helm repository that hosts the grafana-mixin chart, // and ensure you specify the correct chart name if it differs from this placeholder value. chart: "grafana-mixin", version: "x.y.z", // specify the version of the chart you want to deploy fetchOpts: { repo: "https://<helm-chart-repository-host>/grafana-mixin", // replace with the correct repository URL }, // Include any custom values required for the Grafana Mixin Helm chart. // Custom values can alter the behavior of the chart. // For example: // values: { // persistence: { // enabled: true, // size: "10Gi" // }, // adminUser: "admin", // adminPassword: "securepassword" // }, }); // Exports are a way for you to retrieve information about the resources deployed by Pulumi. // For instance, deploying this chart might result in a LoadBalancer Service with a dynamic IP. // In that case, you can export this IP like so: // export const grafanaServiceIp = grafanaMixinChart.getResourceProperty( // "v1/Service", "grafana-mixin", "status" // ).apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].ip);

    To use the code above:

    1. Ensure that you have Pulumi installed and configured for your Kubernetes cluster. If you don’t have a Pulumi account, you can sign up for one at https://app.pulumi.com/signup.

    2. Install the necessary Pulumi Kubernetes package by running npm install @pulumi/kubernetes.

    3. Replace the placeholders such as <helm-chart-repository-host> and x.y.z with the actual values from the grafana-mixin Helm chart repository.

    4. Optionally, set up the values object in the Chart definition to pass configuration to the Helm chart if needed.

    5. Use the exported properties to retrieve valuable runtime information about the deployed resources. Uncomment the export statement and adjust the resource type and names according to what the grafana-mixin chart provides.

    6. Run pulumi up from your terminal in the directory where your index.ts Pulumi program file is located.

    Pulumi will perform the deployment, and you will be able to interact with the services and applications set up by the Helm chart in your Kubernetes cluster.
