I’m testing some local changes for the Ghost Helm Chart (Primary Chart). However, when cloning that subdirectory and attempting to test the chart, I get an error about its dependency on the MariaDB Helm Chart (Secondary Chart):
Error: found in requirements.yaml, but missing in charts/ directory
For clarity, the two charts will be referred to as Primary/Secondary, in bold, for this short post.
This will pull the dependent charts dynamically.
cdto the root of the chart you’re working on from https://github.com/helm/charts. This is based on what’s in your chart’s
- Then run:
$ helm dependency update

This is if you want to manage the dependency on the filesystem manually. Ideally, you wouldn’t want to do this.
- In the directory of your primary chart, run:
mkdir -p ./charts
- Extract the contents of the root directory of Secondary Chart into
- Now test your Primary Chart to see if the dependency error continues:
helm install --dry-run --name ghost ./
