then wait for tiller to be ready:

kubectl get pod -n kube-system -l app=helm -l name=tiller or wait for it with : kubectl wait pod -l app=helm --for condition=ready -n kube-system

Install chartmuseum

helm upgrade --install chartmuseum stable/chartmuseum --set env.open.DISABLE_API=false

Add the helm plugin for chartmuseum

helm plugin install https://github.com/chartmuseum/helm-push

Add a portforward so you can use chartmuseum

export POD_NAME=$(kubectl get pods --namespace default -l "app=chartmuseum" -l "release=chartmuseum" -o jsonpath="{.items[0].metadata.name}") echo kubectl port-forward $POD_NAME 8080:8080 --namespace default &
