Helm: render manifest locally

  1. Install yq (brew install yq)

  2. Download chart to local

  3. Get values from release yaml

  4. Using helm template to render manifest

function download {
  CHART_REPO=$(yq r ${1} spec.chart.repository)
  CHART_NAME=$(yq r ${1} spec.chart.name)
  CHART_VERSION=$(yq r ${1} spec.chart.version)
  helm repo add ${CHART_NAME} ${CHART_REPO}
  helm fetch --version ${CHART_VERSION} --untar ${CHART_NAME}/${CHART_NAME} --untardir ${2}
  echo ${CHART_DIR}


# Download chart to local
CHART_DIR=$(download ${HELM_RELEASE} ${TMPDIR}| tail -n1)

# Custom values
yq r ./releases/$HELM_RELEASE.yaml spec.values > my-custom.values.yaml

HELM_RELEASE_NAME=$(yq r ${HELM_RELEASE} metadata.name)
HELM_RELEASE_NAMESPACE=$(yq r ${HELM_RELEASE} metadata.namespace)

# Render 
helm template ${HELM_RELEASE_NAME} ${CHART_DIR} --namespace $HELM_RELEASE_NAMESPACE --skip-crds true -f my-custom.values.yaml
