Helm allows managing application installs that run on Kubernetes.

Helm has charts and releases. A chart is a set of instructions how to install an application on Kubernetes. A release is the installed application after the chart is ran.

You share charts through repositories. Artifact Hub lists all public repositories.

Helm stores installation details in the Kubernetes cluster secrets. You probably don't need to touch these but good to know.

kubectl -n redis \
    get secret/sh.helm.release.v1.redis.v1 \
    -o jsonpath='{}'
