Some time ago, I started a project to create a Helm based operator for an OpenShift application. I used the Operator SDK to create the Helm operator. The Operator SDK documentation describes the parameters pretty good, and it contains a simple tutorial. it does not, however, describe the complete development cycle. This article aims to describe everything from creating the operator to the point where you can upload your operator to OperatorHub.io. We start with a basic Helm Chart. With this, you can install Nginx as a StatefulSet. You can find the source code in my github repo. Before we can start with creating an operator, we need to fulfill some prerequisites.
