How to install?

Installing Helm

This guide shows how to install the Helm CLI. Helm can be installed either from source, or from pre-built binary releases.

From the Binary Releases

Every release of Helm provides binary releases for a variety of OSes. These binary versions can be manually downloaded and installed.

Download your desired version

Unpack it (tar -zxvf helm-v3.0.0-linux-amd64.tar.gz)

Find the helm binary in the unpacked directory, and move it to its desired destination (mv linux-amd64/helm /usr/local/bin/helm)

Note: Helm automated tests are performed for Linux AMD64 only during CircleCi builds and releases. Testing of other OSes are the responsibility of the community requesting Helm for the OS in question.
