zarf tools helm repo index

zarf tools helm repo index

generate an index file given a directory containing packaged charts


Read the current directory and generate an index file based on the charts found.

This tool is used for creating an ‘index.yaml’ file for a chart repository. To set an absolute URL to the charts, use ‘—url’ flag.

To merge the generated index with an existing index file, use the ‘—merge’ flag. In this case, the charts found in the current directory will be merged into the existing index, with local charts taking priority over existing charts.
