How to Install Organizr on Your Synology NAS

How to Install Organizr on Your Synology NAS

Organizr allows you to set up “Tabs” that will all be loaded in one webpage. You can then work on your server with ease. You can even open up two tabs side by side. Organizr is a frontend manager for all of your server applications. Basically, it organizes all of your commonly used websites or media applications (Sonarr, Radarr etc.) into one dashboard. Organizr is an awesome application for anyone running a homelab or media server. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Organizr on your Synology NAS using Docker.
