Wordle is a web-based word game developed by Josh Wardle. Players have six attempts to guess a five-letter word; feedback is given for each guess, in the form of colored tiles, indicating when letters match or occupy the correct position. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Wordle on your Synology NAS using Docker.
Install Docker via Synology “Package Center”.
Go to Control Panel / Task Scheduler / Create / Scheduled Task / User-defined script. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Once you click on User-defined script, a new window will open. Follow the instructions below:
- General: In the Task field type in Install Wordle. Uncheck the “Enabled” option. Select root User.
- Schedule: Select Run on the following date then select “Do not repeat“.
- Task Settings: Check “Send run details by email“, add your email then copy paste the code below in the Run command area. After that, click OK.
docker run -d --name=wordle \ -p 4111:8080 \ --restart always \ modem7/wordle
After you click OK on STEP 4 a new warning pop up window will open. Click OK.
After you click OK on STEP 5, select your “Install Wordle” Task then click the “Run” tab. You will be asked to run Install Wordle – click Yes. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂
The installation process can take up to a few seconds/minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection. Now open your browser and type in http://Synology-ip-address:4111 Follow the instructions in the image below.
