Rapid Dashboard provides a connection between Docker queries and your Docker Host. Rapid changes the way of using Docker Engine API with ease. The Command Editor is your new Docker client communicating with the Engine. You can easily request supported Docker queries of Docker Remote API. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Rapid Dashboard on your Synology NAS using Docker.
Install Docker via Synology “Package Center”.
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 Rapid. 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=rapid \ -p 9660:8080 \ -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \ --restart always \ ozlerhakan/rapid
After you click OK on STEP 4 a new warning pop up window will open. Click OK.
After you click OK on STEP 5, select your “Install Rapid” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Install Rapid– 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:9660 Select an option from the list, in my case list of all containers. Once the script appears in the dashboard, select the text with the mouse, then click the green play button. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Wait for a few seconds until it’s processed. Follow the instructions in the image below.
You can now see all containers info at a glance in the dashboard!
Enjoy Rapid Dashboard!
