How to Install Reactive Resume V3 on Your Synology NAS

How to Install Reactive Resume V3 on Your Synology NAS

Do you remember my old guide on how to install Reactive Resume on your Synology NAS? Today I want to show you how to install the new V3 version of Reactive Resume. Reactive Resume is a free and open source resume builder that’s built to make the mundane tasks of creating, updating and sharing your resume as easy as 1, 2, 3. With this app, you can create multiple resumes, share them with recruiters or friends through a unique link and print it as a PDF, all for free, no ads, no tracking, without losing the integrity and privacy of your data. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Reactive Resume V3 on your Synology NAS using Docker and Portainer.

Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Reactive Resume v3.6.14 release.
