Notes.txt

its container notes for user how to run this helm charts

  1. Get the application URL by running these commands:
{{- if .Values.ingress.enabled }}
{{- range $host := .Values.ingress.hosts }}
  {{- range .paths }}
  http{{ if $.Values.ingress.tls }}s{{ end }}://{{ $host.host }}{{ .path }}
  {{- end }}
{{- end }}
{{- else if contains "NodePort" .Values.service.type }}
  export NODE_PORT=$(kubectl get --namespace {{ .Release.Namespace }} -o jsonpath="{.spec.ports[0].nodePort}" services {{ include "new-chart.fullname" . }})
  export NODE_IP=$(kubectl get nodes --namespace {{ .Release.Namespace }} -o jsonpath="{.items[0].status.addresses[0].address}")
  echo http://$NODE_IP:$NODE_PORT
{{- else if contains "LoadBalancer" .Values.service.type }}
     NOTE: It may take a few minutes for the LoadBalancer IP to be available.
           You can watch the status of by running 'kubectl get --namespace {{ .Release.Namespace }} svc -w {{ include "new-chart.fullname" . }}'
  export SERVICE_IP=$(kubectl get svc --namespace {{ .Release.Namespace }} {{ include "new-chart.fullname" . }} --template "{{"{{ range (index .status.loadBalancer.ingress 0) }}{{.}}{{ end }}"}}")
  echo http://$SERVICE_IP:{{ .Values.service.port }}
{{- else if contains "ClusterIP" .Values.service.type }}
  export POD_NAME=$(kubectl get pods --namespace {{ .Release.Namespace }} -l "app.kubernetes.io/name={{ include "new-chart.name" . }},app.kubernetes.io/instance={{ .Release.Name }}" -o jsonpath="{.items[0].metadata.name}")
  export CONTAINER_PORT=$(kubectl get pod --namespace {{ .Release.Namespace }} $POD_NAME -o jsonpath="{.spec.containers[0].ports[0].containerPort}")
  echo "Visit http://127.0.0.1:8080 to use your application"
  kubectl --namespace {{ .Release.Namespace }} port-forward $POD_NAME 8080:$CONTAINER_PORT
{{- end }}

chart.yaml

its container helm chart versioning

  
apiVersion: v2
name: new-chart
description: A Helm chart for Kubernetes

# A chart can be either an 'application' or a 'library' chart.
#
# Application charts are a collection of templates that can be packaged into versioned archives
# to be deployed.
#
# Library charts provide useful utilities or functions for the chart developer. They're included as
# a dependency of application charts to inject those utilities and functions into the rendering
# pipeline. Library charts do not define any templates and therefore cannot be deployed.
type: application

# This is the chart version. This version number should be incremented each time you make changes
# to the chart and its templates, including the app version.
# Versions are expected to follow Semantic Versioning (https://semver.org/)
version: 0.1.0

# This is the version number of the application being deployed. This version number should be
# incremented each time you make changes to the application. Versions are not expected to
# follow Semantic Versioning. They should reflect the version the application is using.
# It is recommended to use it with quotes.
appVersion: "1.16.0"
