Re: Helm unit tests

As one of the maintainers I'm biased, but try out Conftest

We have a Helm plugin which makes this easier too

Are there any good options for writing unit tests for Helm charts? My use case is that I want to test that, when setting a parameter, the correct changes are applied to the chart.

I've looked a bit at the helm-unittest project ( and it looks good enough. Unfortunately it is no longer maintained, last commit was almost a year ago and many issues are left unanswered. For example it doesn't have Helm v3 support (yes, there is a PR but I don't want to apply hotfixes and maintain the project myself).
Are there any other good projects with healthy community support for Helm chart unit tests?
