How to Install Reactive Resume V4 on Your Synology NAS

Do you remember my guides on how to install Reactive Resume V1 and Reactive Resume V3 on your Synology NAS? Today I want to show you how to install the new V4 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 V4 on your Synology NAS using Docker and Portainer. Note: If you want a more lightweight Resume container, you can check my OpenResume guide.

💡Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Reactive Resume v4.1.6 release.
