The package manager for Kubernetes

Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.

What is Helm?

Helm helps you manage Kubernetes applications — Helm Charts helps you define, install, and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes application.

Charts are easy to create, version, share, and publish — so start using Helm and stop the copy-and-paste madness.

The latest version of Helm is maintained by Deis in collaboration with Google, Bitnami and the Helm contributor community.
