Helmfile's Features

  • Write, version-control, apply the desired state file for visibility and reproducibility
  • Modularize common patterns of your infrastructure, distribute it via Git, S3, etc. to be reused across the entire company

  • JSON/Strategic-Merge Patch Kubernetes resources before helm-installing, without forking upstream charts

Helmfile Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Helmfile?
Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
Docker Compose
With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.
Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
Docker Swarm
Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
