Helm

Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes. It comes with a repository of curated Kubernetes applications that are maintained in the official Charts repository. Helm has two components: a command line utility called Helm and a cluster component called Tiller. Securing a Kubernetes cluster is a wide and nuanced topic, but we highly recommend setting up Tiller in a role-based access control (RBAC) environment. We've used Helm in a number of client projects and its dependency management, templating and hook mechanism has greatly simplified the application lifecycle management in Kubernetes. However, we recommend proceeding with caution — Helm's YAML templating can be difficult to understand, and Tiller still has some rough edges. Helm 3 is expected to address these issues.

Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes. The set of Kubernetes resources that together define an application is packaged as charts. These charts can describe a single resource, such as a Redis pod, or a full stack of a web application: HTTP servers, databases and caches. Helm, by default, comes with a repository of curated Kubernetes applications that are maintained in the official charts repository. It’s also easy to set up a private chart repository for internal usage. Helm has two components: a command line utility called Helm and a cluster component called Tiller.
