The following table lists the configurable parameters of the recipes chart and their default values that have to be overriden.

env.DEBUG Only set this to true when testing/debugging 0
env.ALLOWED_HOSTS Hosts the application can run under e.g. recipes.mydomain.com,cooking.mydomain.com,… *

You can add more environment variables, read through Recipes .env.template

Read through the charts values.yaml file. Additionally you can take a look at the common library values.yaml for more (advanced) configuration options.

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

helm install recipes \
  --set env.POSTGRES_HOST="postgresql.domain" \

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the above parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

helm install recipes k8s-at-home/recipes --values values.yaml
  tag: ...


If you get

Error: rendered manifests contain a resource that already exists. Unable to continue with install: existing resource conflict: ...`

it may be because you uninstalled the chart with skipuninstall enabled, you need to manually delete the pvc or use existingClaim.

Upgrading an existing Release to a new major version

A major chart version change (like 1.0.1 -> 2.0.0) indicates that there is an incompatible breaking change potentially needing manual actions.
