How to Install Taisun on Your Synology NAS

Taisun is an application for a Docker enabled device with an emphasis on providing a web based interface for managing a single server. Taisun allows you to: Deploy and manage web based virtual desktops. Deploy Taisun specific stacks of applications. Browse available images on popular Docker repositories. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Taisun on your Synology NAS using Docker.

💡Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Taisun 0.6.0 release.

Taisun Deprecation Notice: Due to the upstream project no longer being in development, the Taisun container is now deprecated. This means you can continue to install it and use it, but there will be no more updates of any kind to the software. In any case, if a developer may decide to pick up and continue the project, I will update the article accordingly.
