Helm is a tool that streamlines installing and managing Kubernetes applications. It is a package manager for Kubernetes.
Download your desired version: https://github.com/helm/helm/releases
Unpack it (
tar -zxvf helm-v3.0.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz)
Find the helm binary in the unpacked directory, and move it to its desired destination (
mv linux-amd64/helm /usr/local/bin/helm)
Helm now has an installer script that will automatically grab the latest version of Helm and install it locally.
You can fetch that script, and then execute it locally. It’s well documented so that you can read through it and understand what it is doing before you run it.[3:1]
$ curl -fsSL -o get_helm.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/helm/helm/main/scripts/get-helm-3
Verify the official installation script here: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/helm/helm/main/scripts/get-helm-3
Starting with Helm Version 3, there is by default NO default repository installed.
To add a repository:
helm repo add stable https://charts.helm.sh/stable
Verify the repo was added:
helm repo list
Perform local repo update:
helm repo update
Hang tight while we grab the latest from your chart repositories...
