At IntVerse.io, we specialize in Platform and Integration Services. This article focuses on how
we package any application using Helm and access it via GitHub. Below we have described the
article by choosing the observability application.
What is GitHub
GitHub is a web-based platform that provides a
hosting service for version control repositories. It allows individuals and teams to collaborate
on software development projects by providing tools for version control, code review, issue
tracking, and project management. GitHub is known for being open-source friendly and provides a
platform for open-source projects to collaborate and grow.
What is Helm
Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that
simplifies the deployment and management of applications on a Kubernetes cluster. It allows
users to define, install, and upgrade complex Kubernetes applications with just a few commands.
Helm provides a way to package Kubernetes manifests, templates, and other resources into a
single deployable unit called a chart.
Step by step Process to upload and access Helm Charts from GitHub Pages
- Create new repository on GitHub to upload Helm Chart and Helm Package files
- Commit Helm chart files to the newly created Repository on GitHub.

from terminal with helm binary installed
- helm lint is a command in Helm, a package manager for
Kubernetes, that checks a Helm chart
for potential issues before deploying it to a Kubernetes cluster.
helm lint observability/
- helm package a distributable package from a Helm chart.
The helm package command
takes a directory containing a chart and creates a compressed package, or "tgz" file, that
includes all the files necessary to install the chart on a Kubernetes cluster.
helm package observability/
- The repository index is a YAML file called index.yaml, located at the root of the chart
repository. It contains a list of chart entries, with each entry providing metadata about
the chart, such as its name, version, and URL to download the chart package.
helm repo index --url

- Commit index.yaml and observability-1.0.0.tgz to GitHub
- Now is the time to publish the helm chart from GitHub pages. Click settings on the GitHub
repository, scroll to pages and select the branch to start publishing the helm package.
- helm repo add is a command to add a new chart repository to your local Helm client. The
helm repo add command requires two arguments: the name of the repository and its URL.

- A chart is a package containing all the necessary files and metadata to deploy an
application or service to a Kubernetes cluster. helm install is the command used in the Helm
package manager to install a chart onto a Kubernetes cluster. The helm install command
requires two arguments: the name of the release and the name of the chart to install.
