Before you begin

Setup a Kubernetes Cluster

The quickest way to setup a Kubernetes cluster is with Google Container Engine (GKE) using these instructions.

Finish up by creating a cluster:

$ gcloud container clusters create my-cluster

The above command creates a new cluster named my-cluster. You can name the cluster according to your preferences.

For setting up Kubernetes on other cloud platforms or bare-metal servers refer to the Kubernetes getting started guide.

Install Helm

Helm is a tool for managing Kubernetes charts. Charts are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources.

To install Helm, refer to the Helm install guide and ensure that the helm binary is in the PATH of your shell.

Add Repo

The stable charts are contributed to the upstream kubernetes/charts repository. The following command allows you to download and install all the charts from this repository, both the bitnami and the upstreamed ones.

$ helm repo add bitnami https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami

Using Helm

Once you have installed the Helm client and initialized the Tiller server, you can deploy a Bitnami Helm Chart into a Kubernetes cluster.

Please refer to the Quick Start guide if you wish to get running in just a few commands, otherwise the Using Helm Guide provides detailed instructions on how to use the Helm client to manage packages on your Kubernetes cluster.

Useful Helm Client Commands:

  • View available charts: helm search
  • Install a chart: helm install stable/<package-name>
  • Upgrade your application: helm upgrade
