Helm Operator is an open-source Continuous Delivery solution for deploying Helm charts, and an integrated part of Weave Flux. The Flux operator watches a Git repository for changes to YAML manifest files, pulls updates from the repo, and syncs changes into your cluster's etcd, via Kubernetes API, from any commits that have been made to the git repo.

Helm-operator extends this approach to manage helm charts, adding a "HelmRelease" CRD which is monitored and controlled by the helm-operator. Each HelmRelease resource maps a Helm chart source to a deployed Helm release, through an instrumented, automated Helm Client, the helm-operator.

We will cover the basics of setting up Helm Operator, Tiller with TLS, using Flux, and of course basics of Helm Operator. Learn how Helm Operator and its HelmRelease custom resource can better enable your Helm usage, with automated and continuous releases.
