The package manager for Kubernetes, Helm’s new version has been released with Tiller removed and the Helm Go SDK refactored.
Helm is designed to allow developers and operators to configure, and deploy applications and services onto Kubernetes clusters. Helm is now an official Kubernetes project and a part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports open-source projects for the Kubernetes ecosystem. Helm aims to make it easier to manage objects in Kubernetes, including ConfigMaps, services, pods, and Persistent Volumes. Helm can be used to package everything into a simple application.
The latest version of Helm now comes with a large collection of pre-defined Helm Charts covering uses including MySQL, MariaDB, and WordPress. One of the biggest changes in the newest version of Helm is, it no longer uses Tiller. Another major change is Helm 3.0’s new Go SDK is refactored general use.
Helm 3.0 uses a three-way strategic merge patched instead of a two-way strategic merge used in Helm 2.0. Helm also said in their blog post: “We set out to build a tool that is an on-ramp to Kubernetes. We wanted to make it easier for the Kubernetes user to create, share, and run production-grade workloads.”
