Hi i noticed that the pulumi docker image, does not have helm installed. If we were to use the library
Copy code
k8s.helm.v2.Chart
Do we need to install helm above the pulumi image? What do you recommend?

So you maintain your own pulumi image.

thanks for the insight @bitter-dentist-28132
🙂
I wonder, did you consider instead of insialling it in runtime, install it in buildtime? this isnt pulumi related but I noticed in the pulumi image, theres like azure cli, gke cli and aws cli etc. maybe you dont need it /need it etc.

yes. i chose runtime so that i wouldn't have to maintain my own pulumi image. docker hub doesn't have image triggers any more, so keeping a fork up-to-date with the upstream is a manual (read: time-consuming) task. installing helm in the CI script means i don't have to deal with that particular headache.
