Helm Repo Index

helm repo index

generate an index file given a directory containing packaged charts


Read the current directory and generate an index file based on the charts found.

This tool is used for creating an 'index.yaml' file for a chart repository. To set an absolute URL to the charts, use '--url' flag.

To merge the generated index with an existing index file, use the '--merge' flag. In this case, the charts found in the current directory will be merged into the existing index, with local charts taking priority over existing charts.
