1. Deploy the ublhub helm chart on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)


    To deploy the ublhub Helm chart on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), you will need to follow these steps:

    1. Create a GKE Cluster: A Kubernetes cluster hosted on GKE provides the environment where your applications will run. The gcp.container.Cluster resource in Pulumi allows you to define the configuration of your GKE cluster.

    2. Install and Configure Helm: Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that allows you to define, install, and upgrade complex Kubernetes applications. The harness.service.Helm resource represents a Helm release, which is an instance of a Helm chart running in a Kubernetes cluster.

    3. Deploy the Helm chart: You will need to specify the ublhub chart and set necessary parameters according to your application's needs.

    Below is a TypeScript program that illustrates how to perform these steps using Pulumi.

    import * as pulumi from "@pulumi/pulumi"; import * as gcp from "@pulumi/gcp"; import * as k8s from "@pulumi/kubernetes"; const name = "ublhub-cluster"; const project = gcp.config.project; const zone = "us-central1-a"; // You can change this to the preferred GCP zone. // Step 1: Create a GKE Cluster const cluster = new gcp.container.Cluster(name, { // Basic configuration for the GKE cluster initialNodeCount: 2, nodeVersion: "latest", minMasterVersion: "latest", location: zone, project: project, }); // Export the Kubeconfig, which will be used to interact with the cluster const kubeconfig = pulumi. all([cluster.name, cluster.endpoint, cluster.masterAuth]). apply(([name, endpoint, masterAuth]) => { const context = `${project}_${zone}_${name}`; return `apiVersion: v1 clusters: - cluster: certificate-authority-data: ${masterAuth.clusterCaCertificate} server: https://${endpoint} name: ${context} contexts: - context: cluster: ${context} user: ${context} name: ${context} current-context: ${context} kind: Config preferences: {} users: - name: ${context} user: auth-provider: config: cmd-args: config config-helper --format=json cmd-path: gcloud expiry-key: '{.credential.token_expiry}' token-key: '{.credential.access_token}' name: gcp `; }); // Step 2: Set up the Kubernetes provider to use the created cluster's kubeconfig const provider = new k8s.Provider(name, { kubeconfig: kubeconfig, }); // Step 3: Deploy the ublhub Helm chart using the Kubernetes provider const chart = new k8s.helm.v3.Chart("ublhub-chart", { chart: "ublhub", // Replace with the repository that contains the ublhub chart // or use an absolute path to the chart if it's locally available fetchOpts: { repo: "http://charts.example.com/repository", }, // Specify any values you want to override, for example: // values: { // serviceType: "LoadBalancer", // }, }, { provider }); // Export the Cluster's kubeconfig and Helm chart deployment status export const kubeconfigOutput = kubeconfig; export const chartStatus = chart.status;

    This program completes the following actions:

    • Define a GKE cluster: It creates a new GKE cluster (gcp.container.Cluster) with a specified name, location, node count, and version details. Adjust the initialNodeCount, nodeVersion, and minMasterVersion to suit your needs.
    • Create a kubeconfig File: It constructs a kubeconfig file necessary to authenticate and interact with the cluster via kubectl.
    • Set up a Kubernetes provider with Pulumi: This configures the Pulumi Kubernetes provider to manage resources in the newly created GKE cluster by using the kubeconfig.
    • Deploy a Helm Chart: It deploys a Helm chart (k8s.helm.v3.Chart) with the name ublhub. You need to replace the fetchOpts.repo value with the actual repository URL of your Helm chart.

    To execute this code:

    1. Set up the Pulumi stack: Run pulumi new gcp-typescript to create a new Pulumi project configured for GCP and TypeScript.
    2. Install Dependencies: Run npm install @pulumi/pulumi @pulumi/gcp @pulumi/kubernetes to install the necessary Pulumi packages.
    3. Copy the code into your index.ts file: This is the main program file.
    4. Deploy the stack: Run pulumi up to execute the Pulumi program and deploy the resources to GCP.

    This program assumes that you have already configured Pulumi to work with your GCP credentials and that the Helm chart ublhub is available in a remote repository. Adjust the Helm chart deployment properties to match the specific requirements of your application.
