What is the best or easiest way to add small light to the sloped closet under staircase?

This small closet has the electrical panel for the house, and right next to this closet, there is the HVAC closet where there is an electrical outlet. These days, with the LED light bulb, the max wattage for the new light would be about 50 or so, I guess.

Could this be an DIY project or require an electrician?
And does this require a permit?

I am a little handy with electrical work and understand a little basic electricity.

Thank you.

This is an easy job !
Buy a pull chain light,
mount it on the wall nearby to the outlet.
run some cable from the outlet to the light.

Dont forget to check codes in your area
as their are rules about lights in closets
Probably due to fires safety.
