We at Deis are really excited about Kubernetes. In fact, we're hard at work building Deis v2 on top of a Kubernetes base. During this integration, we developed a tool that we think seasoned Kubernetes users will enjoy, and newcomers can use as an onramp for running containerized applications. And today, we're thrilled to announce this new tool.
We call it Helm, and it's the first package manager for Kubernetes.
Inspired by Homebrew, apt, and npm, Helm is a tool for working with Kubernetes-powered applications. It works like this:
- A Helm package is bundled up as a chart.
- The charts are collected together in a repository that you can search. Helm uses git under the hood for storing and organizing chart data.
- Using the
helmtool, you can find, customize, manage and install these charts.
Helm makes it easy run apps and services inside Kubernetes.Read More
