Docker Hub vs Helm: What are the differences?

Developers describe Docker Hub as "Build and Ship any Application Anywhere". It is the world's easiest way to create, manage, and deliver your teams' container applications. It is the perfect home for your teams' applications. On the other hand, Helm is detailed as "The Kubernetes Package Manager". Helm is the best way to find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes.

Docker Hub and Helm can be primarily classified as "Container" tools.

Helm is an open source tool with 13.2K GitHub stars and 4.23K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Helm's open source repository on GitHub.
