1. Deploy the turborepo-remote-cache helm chart on Rancher


    Sure, I can guide you through deploying a Helm chart onto a Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher using Pulumi and TypeScript. First, let's go through the resources and steps required for this task:

    1. Rancher Kubernetes Cluster: You'll need an existing Kubernetes cluster managed by Rancher. The cluster will be the target for deploying the Helm chart. In Pulumi, we would typically use the rancher2.Cluster resource for managing clusters.

    2. Helm Chart: Helm charts are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources. The turborepo-remote-cache you mentioned is such a chart that would need to be deployed onto the cluster. With Pulumi, we can deploy Helm charts using the Chart resource from @pulumi/kubernetes.

    3. Rancher Kubeconfig: To interact with your Rancher-managed cluster from Pulumi, you need a kubeconfig file that grants you access to the cluster. Usually, the rancher2.Cluster resource can provide this, or you can obtain it from the Rancher UI or API.

    Assuming you have the kubeconfig file ready and the Pulumi CLI installed and configured, here is a Pulumi TypeScript program that illustrates how to deploy the turborepo-remote-cache Helm chart on a Rancher-managed Kubernetes cluster:

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; // Replace the following properties with values corresponding to your Rancher cluster and the Helm chart you want to install const rancherClusterName = "my-rancher-cluster"; // The name of your Rancher cluster const helmChartName = "turborepo-remote-cache"; // The Helm chart you want to deploy const helmChartVersion = "x.y.z"; // Use the correct version of the Helm chart const kubeconfig = "<YOUR_KUBECONFIG_HERE>"; // Your kubeconfig contents as a string // Create a Kubernetes provider instance using the kubeconfig obtained from Rancher const k8sProvider = new k8s.Provider("k8s-provider", { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Deploy the turborepo-remote-cache Helm chart to the Rancher-managed cluster const turborepoRemoteCacheChart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart(helmChartName, { chart: helmChartName, version: helmChartVersion, // Add any custom values you need for the Helm chart deployment values: { // ... }, }, { provider: k8sProvider }); // Optional: Export the Helm release status export const turborepoRemoteCacheChartStatus = turborepoRemoteCacheChart.status;

    To use this program, do the following:

    1. Kubeconfig: Replace <YOUR_KUBECONFIG_HERE> with your Rancher cluster kubeconfig content.

    2. Helm Chart Name and Version: Replace helmChartName and helmChartVersion with the exact name and version of the Helm chart you wish to deploy. You can find it on the Helm chart repository or documentation.

    3. Chart Values: If there are specific configurations you need to apply to the Helm chart, you can pass them through the values object.

    4. Running the Pulumi Program: Save the program in a file (e.g., index.ts), open your terminal, navigate to the file's directory, and run pulumi up. This will start the deployment process. Make sure to review the changes that Pulumi plans to make and confirm them to proceed with the actual deployment.

    The turborepoRemoteCacheChartStatus is an optional export that you can use to get the deployment status of the Helm chart from the Pulumi stack output.

    This script demonstrates deploying a Helm chart to a Kubernetes cluster, which doesn't include setting up a Rancher cluster itself; it assumes the cluster is already created and managed through Rancher. If you are looking to automate Rancher cluster creation as well, you would use rancher2.Cluster from Rancher2 Pulumi provider.

    Remember to replace placeholders with the actual values pertaining to your Kubernetes cluster and Helm chart upon using this script.
