Helm Package ManagerΒΆ

StarlingX supports Helm v3 package manager for Kubernetes that can be used to securely manage the lifecycle of applications within the Kubernetes cluster.

About this task

Helm packages are defined by Helm charts with container information sufficient for managing a Kubernetes application. You can configure, install, and upgrade your Kubernetes applications using Helm charts. Helm charts are defined with a default set of values that describe the behavior of the service installed within the Kubernetes cluster.

StarlingX recommends a non-admin end-user to install a Helm v3 client on a remote workstation to enable management of their Kubernetes applications.

For more information on Helm, see the documentation at https://helm.sh/docs/.

For more information on how to configure and use Helm both locally and remotely, see Configure Local CLI Access, and Configure Remote CLI Access.
