Helmwave is the true release manager.
Hi everyone! I am the owner of helmwave. I use kubernetes and helm everyday. Because I designed helmwave based on my pain.
Helmwave closes popular issues with helm workflow.
Forget bash deploy around helm.
The example: https://helmwave.github.io/docs/0.19.x/examples/pass-git-tag/
helm install app ./ --set image.tag=$CI_COMMIT_TAG
just describe helmwave.yml and use next command
The example: https://helmwave.github.io/docs/0.19.x/examples/single-app-multi-envs/
if [ $CI_ENV == 'prod' ]
helm upgrade app -f prod.yml
helm install app -f values.yml
You can describe it in yaml with helmwave. And up it in one command!
helmwave up --build
Live tracking deploy!
With helmwave you can see an application logs and Kubernetes events.
The example: https://helmwave.github.io/docs/0.19.x/examples/kubedog/
You don’t need an umbrella chart anymore!
I think that an umbrella chart is an anti-pattern.
if you have 2 app with message broker between each other.
- name: message-broker
- name: app1
- name: app
Helmwave will execute each release in other thread*.
- Of course, I mean goroutine.
Suppose we have next 3-tier application. And we need step by step deployment.
- name: frontend
- name: backend
- name: db
We also added
allow_failure option. When
allow_failure is set true. It allows the installation to proceed.
Also helmwave shows a graph dependencies.
Helmwave can use gomplate for fetch secrets from popular services such like aws sm, vault, etc.
- vault: https://helmwave.github.io/docs/0.19.x/examples/vault/
- aws secret manager: https://helmwave.github.io/docs/0.19.x/examples/aws-sm/
gomplate is a template renderer which supports a growing list of datasources, such as: JSON (including EJSON — encrypted JSON), YAML, AWS EC2 metadata, BoltDB, Hashicorp Consul and Hashicorp Vault secrets.
Use helmwave for all your releases.
You can also template helmwave.yml. Just create the helmwave.yml.tpl.
- Store list releases in databases;
- Template list releases;
- Template values base on releases;
- Imagination is infinite!
Become a helm hero with helmwave!
