Spring Music on Kubernetes with Digital Ocean PostgreSQL

This example shows how you can use Porter to create a CNAB bundle that will use s3cmd to first make a new Space on Digital Ocean, use Terraform to provision a PostgreSQL Database Cluster, and deploy Spring Music to a Kubernetes cluster with Helm. When Terraform is run, it will use the Space created by s3cmd as a backend, in order to store the TF state file. When Helm is used to deploy Spring Music, it will use the database connection information generated by the Terraform apply! This example shows how multiple tools can be chained together to deploy a Cloud Native Application.

This repo also contains an example GitHub action configuration .github/workflows/main.yml that shows how you might use Porter to build and publish the CNAB bundle to a Docker Registry!

Try it Out Yourself


In order to try this out yourself, you'll first need to install Porter. Please see the installation instructions for the steps needed to do that. You'll need to have Docker installed in order to use Porter, and you'll also need a Digital Ocean account.

Once you have the account, you'll need to create an access token and generate a Spaces API Key.

You should set these as environment variables for use with the bundle. These values will look something like:


NOTE: You need the "secret" values for the Access Token and Spaces Secret, not the name.

Next, you'll need a Kubernetes cluster and a kubeconfig file. You can use AKS, Digital Ocean, any other Kubernetes cluster, as long as it can successfully create a service of type LoadBalancer.

Clone This Repo

The first thing you'll need to do in order to try the bundle out is to clone this repo and enter into that directory:

git clone
cd do-porter

Build The Bundle

Now, you are ready to build the bundle.

porter build

Generate a Credential

Once this has finished, you are almost ready to install the bundle. Before you install, however, you'll need to generate a credential. To do this, we'll use the porter credentials generate command:

porter credentials generate

This will launch a guided dialog for building a credential. You'll see prompts like this:

Generating new credential spring-music from bundle spring-music
==> 4 credentials required for bundle spring-music
? How would you like to set credential "do_access_token"  [Use arrows to move, space to select, type to filter]
  specific value
> environment variable
  file path
  shell command

For the three digital ocean credentials, select environment variable and provide the corresponding value. For the kubeconfig, you should select file path and give the location of your config file:

? How would you like to set credential "kubeconfig"  [Use arrows to move, space to select, type to filter]
  specific value
  environment variable
> file path
  shell command
Enter the path that will be used to set credential "kubeconfig" $HOME/.kube/config

Install The Bundle

Now that you have build the bundle and generated a credential, you are ready to install the bundle. To do that, we'll use the porter install command. You'll need to pick a value for the space_name and database_name parameter.

porter install -c spring-music --param space_name=<SOME VALUE> --param database_name=<SOME VALUE>

Some other parameters that you can set are:

  • region
  • node_count
  • namespace
  • helm_release

Viewing the Output

Once the bundle has been successfully installed, you can use the porter instances list and porter instances show command to see your bundle installations.

First, view the instances that have been installed:

$ porter instances list
spring-music   4 hours ago   3 hours ago   install       success

Then, use porter instances show to view more details:

$ porter instances show spring-music
Name: spring-music
Created: 4 hours ago
Modified: 3 hours ago
Last Action: install
Last Status: success

  Name        Type    Value (Path if sensitive)
  service_ip  string

NOTE: the value for service_ip will be different for your installation

You should be able then view the application by navigating to that IP address in a web browser.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
