How to Install Shaarli on Your Synology NAS

Shaarli is a minimalist link sharing service that you can install on your own server. It is designed to be personal (single-user), fast and handy. Shaarli allows you to bookmark your favorite pages, and share them with others or store them privately. You can add a description to your bookmarks, tag them etc. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Shaarli on your Synology NAS using Docker.
