ProxiTok allows you to use TikTok with an alternative frontend. It’s inspired by Nitter. ProxiTok’s strong point is that all requests made to TikTok are server-side, so you will never connect to their servers, which also means that you won’t see any ADS either. Note: ProxiTok does not need a persistent volume because all the data is cached on the RAM. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install ProxiTok on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.
