1. Deploy the operator-crds helm chart on Kubernetes


    To deploy a Helm chart on a Kubernetes cluster using Pulumi, you'll need to write a Pulumi program using the Kubernetes provider. The kubernetes.helm.v3.Chart resource is specifically designed to work with Helm charts in a Kubernetes cluster.

    In the following example, I'll show you a TypeScript Pulumi program that performs the following steps:

    1. Prerequisites: You should have a Kubernetes cluster already running and have kubectl configured to communicate with it.
    2. Helm Chart: We will deploy the operator-crds Helm chart.

    The program will assume that you have Pulumi and the Pulumi CLI installed and set up, and that you have a Kubernetes cluster available.

    Here's how to deploy the operator-crds Helm chart:

    import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Define the Helm chart, version, and values to use const operatorCrdsChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("operator-crds", { // By default, Helm will install the chart in the `default` namespace // This can be changed by setting the `namespace` property chart: "operator-crds", version: "1.0.0", // Replace with the actual chart version you wish to deploy fetchOpts: { // Replace 'https://example.com/helm-charts' with the actual Helm repository URL // where the 'operator-crds' chart is hosted repo: "https://example.com/helm-charts", }, // If you have specific values you'd like to override in the chart, // you can place them here, for example: // values: { key1: "value1", key2: "value2" }, }); // The `Chart` resource does not have any output properties for accessing individual components of the chart // To access chart-related resources, you need to use other `k8s` resources like `k8s.apiextensions.v1.CustomResource`, // `k8s.core.v1.Service`, etc. // Export the base DNS name of the cluster, which may be needed for other resources export const baseDnsName = operatorCrdsChart.getResourceProperty("v1/Service", "my-service", "status").apply(status => status.loadBalancer.ingress[0].hostname);

    In this program:

    • We import the @pulumi/kubernetes package to interact with Kubernetes resources within Pulumi.
    • We create a new Helm chart using new k8s.helm.v3.Chart which will install the operator-crds Helm chart into the cluster. You'll need to provide the appropriate version and fetchOpts.repo values that correspond to the chart you want to deploy.
    • If the Helm chart requires any specific values to be configured, you can set them in the values property of the Chart resource. Uncomment and modify the values property as necessary.

    You can apply this Pulumi program by saving it to a file (e.g., index.ts), and then running pulumi up. This will prompt you to create a new stack or select an existing one, and then perform an update to deploy the resources defined in the program.
