1. Deploy the helm-snowplow helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy the helm-snowplow helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you will primarily use the Chart resource from the Pulumi Kubernetes provider. This resource allows you to apply Helm charts to your cluster in much the same way you would using the Helm CLI, but you can manage the lifecycle of the application directly through Pulumi.

    In this example, we assume that you already have a Kubernetes cluster configured and that Pulumi is set to use the correct context to deploy to this cluster. If you need to set up a Kubernetes cluster, you could use cloud provider-specific Pulumi resources, such as for Amazon EKS, Google GKE, or Azure AKS.

    Below is a TypeScript program that demonstrates how to deploy a hypothetical helm-snowplow chart. Note that you need to replace the placeholder values for repo and chart properties with the actual Helm chart repository and chart name for Snowplow if they differ. Additionally, the values object is a placeholder for any configuration values that you would set via the values.yaml file or with --set flags in Helm.

    Make sure to have the @pulumi/kubernetes npm package installed in your Pulumi project before running this program.

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Create a Helm Chart resource using the `helm-snowplow` chart from a repository. // You must specify the correct repository URL and chart name for Snowplow. const snowplowChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("helm-snowplow", { // Replace with your specific Snowplow Helm chart's repository details. repo: "your-snowplow-helm-chart-repo", chart: "snowplow", // Specify the namespace to deploy the Helm chart to, if required. namespace: "your-target-namespace", // Use the 'values' object to provide configuration to the chart. // In a real-world scenario, you would populate this with the actual // configuration values specific for your Snowplow deployment. values: { // Replace these with actual configuration values. service: { type: "ClusterIP", }, // Any additional configuration values go here. }, }); export const chartName = snowplowChart.metadata.name;

    In the above program:

    • We import the Kubernetes package for Pulumi.
    • We create a new Helm chart resource with the k8s.helm.v3.Chart class.
    • The repo property is to specify the Helm repository where the helm-snowplow chart is hosted. You need to replace your-snowplow-helm-chart-repo with the actual repository URL.
    • The chart property is the name of the chart that we want to deploy. For helm-snowplow, replace the corresponding value.
    • namespace is where the Helm chart will be deployed within your Kubernetes cluster. Often, Helm charts come with a default, but you can specify another.
    • The values property is where you can specify configuration parameters. In Helm, this is similar to populating a values.yaml file or using --set command line arguments. Replace the contents of the values object with configuration relevant to the snowplow chart you are deploying.
    • Finally, we export the chart name, which allows us to retrieve the name of the deployed chart after running a pulumi up.

    To run this Pulumi program, you would save it to a file called index.ts in your Pulumi project directory. Then, from the command line in the same directory, you can run pulumi up, which will prompt you to apply the changes and deploy the Helm chart to your Kubernetes cluster.

    Please replace the placeholders in the above code with the correct names and values for your deployment scenario.
