Using the Helm Tiller Addon

helm-tiller Addon

Kubernetes Helm - The Kubernetes Package Manager

Enabling helm-tiller

To enable this addon, simply run:

minikube addons enable helm-tiller

In a minute or so tiller will be installed into your cluster. You could run helm init each time you create a new minikube instance or you could just enable this addon. Each time you start a new minikube instance, tiller will be automatically installed.

Testing installation

helm ls

If everything went well you shouldn’t get any errors about tiller being installed in your cluster. If you haven’t deployed any releases helm ls won’t return anything.

Deprecation of Tiller

When tiller is finally deprecated this addon won’t be necessary anymore. If your version of helm doesn’t use tiller, you don’t need this addon.
