Fenrus is a personal homepage/dashboard. It allows you to have a custom homepage/new tab page with quick access to your personal apps, website, and docker images. It’s something similar to Homarr, Flame, Dashboard and Heimdall. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Fenrus on your Synology NAS using Docker.
Install Docker via Synology “Package Center”.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it fenrus. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Now create one new folder inside the fenrus folder that you created at STEP 3 and name it images. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Go to Control Panel / Task Scheduler / Create / Scheduled Task / User-defined script. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Once you click on User-defined script, a new window will open. Follow the instructions below:
- General: In the Task field type in Install Fenrus. Uncheck the “Enabled” option. Select root User.
- Schedule: Select Run on the following date then select “Do not repeat“.
- Task Settings: Check “Send run details by email“, add your email then copy paste the code below in the Run command area. After that, click OK.
docker run -d --name=fenrus \ -p 5300:3000 \ -v /volume1/docker/fenrus:/app/data \ -v /volume1/docker/fenrus/images:/app/wwwroot/images \ --restart always \ revenz/fenrus
After you click OK on STEP 6 a new warning pop up window will open. Click OK.
After you click OK on STEP 7, select your “Install Fenrus” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Install Fenrus – click Yes. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂
The installation process can take up to a few seconds/minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection. Now open your browser and type in http://Synology-ip-address:5300 Add your own Username and Password. Click Save. Follow the instructions in the image below.
You can easily change the current purple theme with another one from the list. Follow the instructions in the image below.
