What is helm ?

  • Helm: A command-line interface (CLI) that installs charts into Kubernetes, creating a release for each installation.
  • Chart: An application package that contains templates for a set of resources that are necessary to run the application. A template uses variables that are substituted with values when the manifest is created. The chart includes a values file that describes how to configure the resources.
  • Repository: Storage for Helm charts.
  • Release: An instance of a chart that is running in a Kubernetes cluster. You can install the same chart multiple times to create multiple releases.
