Helm Charts rather than Halyard-based install?


One of our customers asks this about managing Spinnaker:

“Currently we are using Halyard to manage spinnaker. I also see others in the community using helm charts to manage spinnaker. What is the preferred way?”


In short, halyard is the recommended way.

Helm charts are great, particularly for those more comfortable with helm, however it is not managed directly by the Spinnaker eng team, so may see some delay in updates, etc.

There are benefits on either side, so if the question can be broken down to any more specifics, I’m happy to provide answers.
