Installing OpenFaaS using Helm

Now we have the cluster launched, we need to install the OpenFaaS components. We are going to be using Helm for this. If you didn't install Helm during the previous chapter please refer to the installation instructions there. As with a Helm installation, we need to initialize it, which installs the server-side component Tiller. To do this, run the following command:

$ helm init

Now that we have Helm configured on our local, single-node Kubernetes cluster, we need to download a copy of the faas-netes code repository from GitHub. To do this, run either of the following commands:

$ git clone https://github.com/openfaas/faas-netes$ cd faas-netes

You can also download a copy as a ZIP file from https://github.com/openfaas/faas-netes ...
