How to Install Speedtest Tracker on Your UGREEN NAS

How to Install Speedtest Tracker on Your UGREEN NAS

SpeedTest Tracker is a program that runs a speedtest check every hour and graphs the results in a fancy way. The back-end is written in Laravel and the front-end uses Filament. It uses Ookla’s Speedtest cli to get the data and uses Chart.js to plot the results. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install SpeedTest Tracker on your UGREEN NAS with SQLite using Docker & Portainer.

💡Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Speedtest Tracker v.0.20.7 release.
