Installing gitlab runner chart without tiller


I’m trying to deploy the gitlab runner on my kubernetes cluster, but I don’t want to deploy tiller. Is it possible to use the gitlab runner helm chart with helm template and kubectl apply, or does gitlab runner for kubernetes require tiller outside of the install step?

So far attempting to install the runner with helm template gitlab-runner --name gitlab-runner --namespace gitlab -f $my.yaml | kubectl -n gitlab apply -f - just results in the deployment and replica set being created, but no pods are ever created.
