Create and publish a Helm chart of your Kubernetes application.
Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes and makes it simple to publish your app so that people can install it in three lines. For example with the Hue SQL Editor:
helm repo add gethue https://helm.gethue.com helm repo update helm install hue gethue/hue
3-step process of packaging
To build the chart, simply use the package command from the root of your Helm chart. Using Hue Helm directory as an example:
cd hue/tools/kubernetes/helm/ helm package hue
Then to publish it to the outside, index it and serve it in your Helm repository which can be a simple static Web server.
For example here with an Apache server we copy it to the host:
scp hue-1.0.1.tgz [email protected]:/var/www/helm.gethue.com
Then connect to the server and index the package:
ssh [email protected] cd /var/www/helm.gethue.com helm repo index .
Note: those are manual steps but can obviously be automated. Also feel free to check your server logs to count how many people install it.
Then your users can start leveraging features from the Kubernetes world like rolling upgrades, metrics, tracing…
Any feedback or question? Feel free to comment here or on the Discussions and quick start SQL querying!
