    Helm is a tool for managing Charts. Charts are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources.

    Use Helm to:

    • Find and use popular software packaged as Helm Charts to run in Kubernetes
    • Share your own applications as Helm Charts
    • Create reproducible builds of your Kubernetes applications
    • Intelligently manage your Kubernetes manifest files
    • Manage releases of Helm packages

    Helm in a Handbasket

    Helm is a tool that streamlines installing and managing Kubernetes applications. Think of it like apt/yum/homebrew for Kubernetes.

    • Helm renders your templates and communicates with the Kubernetes API
    • Helm runs on your laptop, CI/CD, or wherever you want it to run.
    • Charts are Helm packages that contain at least two things:
      • A description of the package (Chart.yaml)
      • One or more templates, which contain Kubernetes manifest files
    • Charts can be stored on disk, or fetched from remote chart repositories (like Debian or RedHat packages)


    Binary downloads of the Helm client can be found on the Releases page.

    Unpack the helm binary and add it to your PATH and you are good to go!

    If you want to use a package manager:

    • Homebrew users can use brew install helm.
    • Chocolatey users can use choco install kubernetes-helm.
    • Scoop users can use scoop install helm.
    • GoFish users can use gofish install helm.
    • Snapcraft users can use snap install helm --classic

    To rapidly get Helm up and running, start with the Quick Start Guide.

    See the installation guide for more options, including installing pre-releases.
