Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Central helm chart repository - suggestions for request

HI Sigi,

I waited a couple of days to respond to see if this would generate a conversation, but as traditionally the subscribers to this list have been focussed on the Eclipse IDE written in Java, they may be somewhat more detached from helm and the related technologies than the whole Eclipse Open Source community. If you haven't already, it may be worth reaching out to the Automotive, IoT, ECD PMC mailing lists which may have a more aligned audience?

Hi Everyone,


I’m Sigi, part of the open source project Eclipse Tractus-X and we are in the middle of building that platform.


This platform is based on k8s and uses helm charts as a sane installation base for all products.


As far as I know there is no central eclipse helm chart repository. There is an IoT project from Bosch were they leverage github actions with github pages to generate a static helm chart repository.


Our current workflow is very similar: we also leverage github action with github pages. We actually have two: dev and stable. Dev is for all non official releases and stable for all official releases.


I’m preparing a proposal to suggest to the eclipse foundation to add a helm repository as a service because while the github based approach works well enough, its probably not a good long term solution.


Things I think a real helm chart repository can do better are:

  • Scalability
  • Proper api (add, delete, etc.)
  • Archive functionality (push once, don’t allow to delete or overwrite one)
  • . . .


Before I propose this, I’m asking for your feedback, thoughts and suggestions. Also perhaps if you tell me you also see the need, I will ask you later to sign my proposal.
