Helm is one of the most powerful and community-adopted package managers for Kubernetes, similar to yum for Linux or npm for Node.js. It is used to install and manage all the Kubernetes applications. Helm deploys all the k8s applications in a packaging format called helm charts. Charts deployed by Helm are complete, packaged Kubernetes applications. They include versioned, pre-configured application resources that can be deployed as a single unit. You can deploy different versions of the chart with different sets of configurations.
Helm is an essential part of a well-designed Kubernetes architecture. It can significantly improve the Kubernetes development experience by improving productivity, making Kubernetes applications less complex, and making it easier to manage cloud-native and microservices applications.
Install Helm with a package manager or download a binary.
choco install kubernetes-helm
