# Install Helm

Install Helm (opens new window) binary:

export DESIRED_VERSION="v2.13.0"
curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/helm/helm/master/scripts/get | bash

Install Tiller (the Helm server-side component) into the Kubernetes cluster:

kubectl create serviceaccount tiller --namespace kube-system
kubectl create clusterrolebinding tiller-cluster-rule --clusterrole=cluster-admin --serviceaccount=kube-system:tiller
helm init --wait --service-account tiller
helm repo update

Check if the tiller was installed properly:

kubectl get pods -l app=helm --all-namespaces
