Forge can output Helm charts, and not just the deployment manifests

FWIW, I'm experimenting on an another way of integrating forge with Helm charts - something like this:

  if [ -d k8s/ ]; then
    echo removing directory k8s/...
    rm -rf k8s/
  mkdir k8s/
  echo rendering k8s/manifests-from-helm-template.yaml...
  helm-secrets template \
    --name '{{}}' \
    --set 'image.repository=\{\{build.images[\"Dockerfile\"]\
\"].split(\":\")[1]\}\}' . \
    -f values.yaml \
    -f secrets.yaml \
    > k8s/manifests-from-helm-template.yaml
  forge build manifest
  kubectl apply -f  .forge/k8s/$service_name/manifests-from-helm-template.yaml --prune ...

Basically, it works like:

  • forge computes and passes dynamic values(like image tag) to helm
  • Then, helm(-secrets) combines decrypted secrets + raw config values to produce forge-style k8s manifests under k8s/.
  • forge renders k8s manifests into .forge/k8s/$service_name/manifests-from-helm-template.yaml.
  • kubectl apply to apply the rendered k8s manifests into the cluster
