To use third-party repositories like the United Manufacturing Hub, you first need to add them to OpenLens / UMHLens. Fortunately, adding a repository to Lens is a simple process that can be accomplished in a few steps.
In Lens, go to "Files" and then select "Preferences".
In the preferences window, navigate to the "Kubernetes" tab.
Under the "Helm Charts" section, click the "Add custom helm repo" button.
In the "Add custom helm repo" dialog, enter a name for the repository in the "Name" field. We commonly use "united-manufacturing-hub".
In the "URL" field, enter the URL for the UMH Helm Repo: https://repo.umh.app.
Click the "Add" button to add the repository.
- Install Helm on your computer running UMHLens (on Windows in combination with WSL2):
export VERIFY_CHECKSUM=false && curl -fsSL -o get_helm.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/helm/helm/master/scripts/get-helm-3 && chmod 700 get_helm.sh && ./get_helm.sh
- Add the United Manufacturing Hub Helm Repo:
helm repo add united-manufacturing-hub https://repo.umh.app
- Get repository updates:
helm repo update
- Restart UMHLens (make sure to also close it in the system tray).
By following these steps, you can easily add the United Manufacturing Hub Helm Repo to OpenLens / UMHLens and start using it to manage your Kubernetes applications.
