The package manager for Kubernetes

Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.


What is Helm?

Manage Complexity

Charts describe even the most complex apps, provide repeatable application installation, and serve as a single point of authority.

Easy Updates

Take the pain out of updates with in-place upgrades and custom hooks.

Simple Sharing

Charts are easy to version, share, and host on public or private servers.


Use helm rollback to roll back to an older version of a release with ease.

Get Helm!

Install Helm with a package manager, or download a binary.

Once installed, unpack the helm binary and add it to your PATH and you are good to go! Check the docs for further installation and usage instructions.

Helm always welcomes new contributions to the project!

Where to begin?

Helm is a big project with a lot of users and contributors. It can be a lot to take in!

We have a list of good first issues if you want to help but don't know where to start.

What do I do?

Before you contribute some code, please read our Contribution Guide. It goes over the processes around creating and reviewing pull requests.

Once you write some code, please sign your commits to ensure Helm adheres to the DCO agreement used by the CNCF.
