How to Install Oasis on Your Synology NAS

How to Install Oasis on Your Synology NAS

Oasis is a simple file server/browser. It’s very easy to use, with basic functionalities such as file download, upload, sharing, preview and has good support for mobile browsers. You can use it to play videos or music on another computer, and for some formats not supported by browsers it also provides the sharing links to open them in an external player like MPV or VLC. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Oasis on your Synology NAS using Docker.

Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Oasis v0.2.2 release.
