provider. Creating an instance of it on your own with a provided kubeconfig let’s you talk to the cluster to deploy manifests, locally templated helm charts or pulumi kubernetes objects defined inline. But as @tall-librarian-49374 mentioned, there is more to it. In most cases you need additional stuff for your kubernetes manifests like `loadBalancerIP`s,
names for lookups, credentials for managed databases or secrets to create service accounts with additional permissions. All of this can become a mess if created externally and handed into pulumi as a config and is really way more convenient if created from pulumi directly.
