PlantUML is an open-source tool allowing users to create diagrams from a plain text language. Besides various UML diagrams, PlantUML has support for various other software development related formats, as well as visualization of JSON and YAML files. The language of PlantUML is an example of a domain-specific language. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install PlantUML on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.
Install Portainer using my step by step guide. If you already have Portainer installed on your Synology NAS, skip this STEP. Attention: Make sure you have installed the latest Portainer version.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folders and name it plantuml. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Log into Portainer using your username and password. On the left sidebar in Portainer, click on Stacks then + Add stack. Follow the instructions in the image below.
In the Name field type in plantuml. Follow the instructions in the image below.
version: "3.9" services: plantuml: image: plantuml/plantuml-server:latest container_name: PlantUML hostname: plantuml mem_limit: 2g cpu_shares: 768 security_opt: - no-new-privileges:true user: 1026:100 healthcheck: test: wget --no-verbose --tries=1 --spider http://localhost:8080 ports: - 9816:8080 volumes: - /volume1/docker/plantuml:/tmp/jetty:rw environment: TZ: Europe/Bucharest restart: on-failure:5
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Web editor area below, change the value numbers for PUID and PGID with your own values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.)
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Web editor area below, change the value for TZ. (Select your current Time Zone from this list.)
Scroll down on the page until you see a button named Deploy the stack. Click on it. Follow the instructions in the image below. The installation process can take up to a few minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection.
If everything goes right, you will see the following message at the top right of your screen: “Success Stack successfully deployed“.
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:9816
