Install Helm3 & Helm2 on macOS

Embrace Helm3 while keeping Helm2 around in transition

Helm v3 was recently released and can install Kubernetes applications without the need for a Tiller service. Before you go and delete Helm v2 completely, some things you may want to consider this:

  • Applications installed with Helm v2 + Tiller cannot be uninstalled, so if they need to be updated, they need to be uninstalled with Helm v2, reinstalled with Helm v3.
brew install helm@2
brew install helm
cd /usr/local/bin
ln -s /usr/local/opt/helm@2/bin/tiller tiller
ln -s /usr/local/opt/helm@2/bin/helm helm2
ln -s helm helm3
