Deploying Netlify CMS on AWS with Pulumi

Deploying Netlify CMS on AWS with Pulumi

Netlify CMS is an open-source content management system that provides UI for editing content and adopting Git workflow. Initially, we want to take advantage of it to increase efficiency to edit Pulumi’s website. However, during development, we found few examples are deploying the CMS application on AWS instead of Netlify, its home platform. Therefore, in this blog post, we would like to share how to organize Netlify’s file structure and use Pulumi to store the content on S3 buckets, connect to CloudFront, and configure certificate in Certificate Manager.

Announcing Python Tooling Improvements

Announcing Python Tooling Improvements

Today we’re excited to announce some fairly significant improvements to the experience of writing Pulumi programs in Python. We’ve added type annotations to APIs and now allow passing nested data as strongly typed classes instead of raw dicts. This provides a much better editing experience in IDEs, improved type checking, and overall consistency.

Deploying a MySQL schema using Dynamic Providers

Deploying a MySQL schema using Dynamic Providers

In our previous post, we created a Python voting application using Flask and Redis. This blog post will explore creating a MySQL database and initializing it with a schema and data. What seems to be a simple step is much more interesting than it appears, because Pulumi’s MySQL provider does not support creating and populating tables. To do it, we will extend it with a Dynamic Provider.

How Pinpoint Manages Kubernetes Costs and Deployments

How Pinpoint Manages Kubernetes Costs and Deployments

This guest blog was contributed by Andrew Kunzel and Michael Goode. Andrew is the Director of Backend Engineering and Michael is a Platform Operations Engineer at Pinpoint.

At Pinpoint, Kubernetes is the most powerful tool in our arsenal. It allows us to deploy and rapidly scale our applications with speed and efficiency that continues to delight our customers. In recent years, managed services like AWS EKS have made it easier than ever to leverage the power of Kubernetes in even the smallest of organizations. Yet even with these new conveniences, managing all of this infrastructure can be a daunting task. Right out of the gate, we knew that we wanted to avoid the burden of maintaining repositories full of home-brewed deployment scripts and domain-specific languages like YAML.

Authoring CrossGuard Policy with Open Policy Agent (OPA)

Authoring CrossGuard Policy with Open Policy Agent (OPA)

We’re excited to announce the addition of Open Policy Agent (OPA) Rego language support to Pulumi’s CrossGuard policy-as-code framework. This enables Pulumi CrossGuard policy to be authored in either JavaScript/TypeScript/Python or in the popular Rego language using OPA.

Pulumi’s CrossGuard policy-as-code framework provides the ability to author, apply and enforce policy directly as part of your Pulumi deployments. With the new support for OPA Rego, CrossGuard supports a broad spectrum of policy authoring options, from expressive imperative languages to a popular industry-standard declarative policy language.

OPA-based rules for CrossGuard get all the core benefits of Pulumi’s policy-as-code framework - policies can be run on previews to get warnings about errors before you even deploy, policies can produce either advisory or mandatory recommendations allowing flexibility in flagging and enforcing policy violations, and policies can be applied and enforced across an entire organization through the Pulumi Service.

Introducing the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator

Kubernetes developers and operators work together to manage workloads and to continuously ship software through CI/CD. These users have an affinity for automation and pipelines, and richer integration with Kubernetes is a growing theme across the cloud native ecosystem.

We’re excited to introduce the Pulumi Kubernetes Operator: a Kubernetes controller that deploys cloud infrastructure in Pulumi Stacks for you and your team.

These program stacks include virtual machines, block storage, managed Kubernetes clusters, API resources, serverless functions and more!

Introducing kube2pulumi: No More YAML

Introducing kube2pulumi: No More YAML

Kubernetes users often joke about being “YAML engineers,” and the pile of YAML seems to get deeper every day. Today, we’re pleased to announce kube2pulumi, a tool to automatically convert Kubernetes manifests into modern code! Instead of manipulating YAML directly, you can take advantage of the rich ecosystem of programming language tools to supercharge your productivity.
