Many popular software projects maintain their own Helm chart. In this video, familiarize yourself with the charts in the Helm Hub.
- [Instructor] We want to be able to quickly install software in our Kubernetes clusters. And you can search for public helm charts in the Helm Hub. I'm at hub.helm.sh. Which is the home of the Helm Hub. As I scroll down, I see that, wow, there are a lot of charts here. I recognize some of the projects like Engine X, MongoDB, Jenkins, and Datadog. These companies maintain their own helm charts that you can use, and install in your own Kubernetes cluster. Let's see what info about a helm chart we get from the helm hub by searching for the engine X ingress chart. Looks like there are a handful of options here, but I want to look at the chart that's maintained by engine X. Here, we see a high level description of the chart. This chart deploys the engine X ingress controller in your Kubernetes cluster. There's also a list of prerequisites for using engine X ingress in a Kubernetes cluster. And this chart requires a Kubernetes version that supports ingress controller helm two point 16, or a higher version. Or 3.0 or higher, and get. So we scroll down, we see instructions for how to install the chart as well as how to uninstall the chart. And if we keep going, we see a list of possible parameters we can use to customize the chart. If we go back up to the top, and look at the right side, there's also information about the latest release, who maintains the chart, and where to find the source code for the helm chart. All of the charts in the helm hub follow this general layout. Many popular software projects maintain their own helm chart that you can find, and install through the helm hub.
