Repository: govuk-helm-charts

Helm charts for the GOV.UK website and publishing platform. See also Not quite production yet, as of Dec 2022. See for the current equivalent.



Local development

  1. Clone the repository
  2. Configure git hooks: git config core.hooksPath git-hooks


Helm must be installed to use the charts. Please refer to Helm’s documentation to get started.

Refer to the GOV.UK Kubernetes Cluster User Docs for an introduction to the cluster or ask for help from #govuk-replatforming in Slack.

Once Helm has been set up correctly, add the repo as follows:

helm repo add govuk-helm-charts

If you had already added this repo earlier, run helm repo update to retrieve the latest versions of the packages. You can then run helm search repo <alias> to see the charts.

To install the chart:

helm install my-<chart-name> <alias>/<chart-name>

To uninstall the chart:

helm delete my-<chart-name>


Refer to schemas/ for guidance on the schema that the Kubernetes manifests are validated against.
