Helm helps you manage Kubernetes applications.
Helm Charts assist you in defining, installing, and upgrading even the most complex Kubernetes applications.
Create, edit, share, and publish charts effortlessly—start using HELM and leave copying and pasting behind.
Helm is a CNCF project maintained by the Helm community.
- Complex Management: Charts describe even the most intricate applications, provide repeatable app installations, and serve as a single source of truth.
- Easy Updates: Say goodbye to update headaches with in-place upgrades and customizable webhooks.
- Simple Sharing: Easily share and host charts on public or private servers.
- Rollbacks: Utilize rollback functionality to effortlessly revert to an older version of a release.
Goal of Helm
Helm is a tool for managing Kubernetes packages called charts.
Helm can perform the following actions:
- Create new charts from scratch
- Package charts into chart archive files (tgz)
- Interact with chart repositories where charts are stored
- Install and uninstall charts in an existing Kubernetes cluster
- Manage the release lifecycle of charts installed with Helm
For Helm, there are three important concepts:
- A chart is a bundle of information necessary to create an instance of a Kubernetes application.
- A config contains configuration information that can be merged into a packaged chart to create a release-ready object.
- A release is a running instance of a chart, combined with a specific configuration.
