Synology Install Trilium With Portainer

Synology Install Trilium With Portainer

My previous guide for Trilium involved the use of Task Scheduler. Today I’m offering a recommended and excellent alternative for installing the latest Trilium version via Portainer. Trilium Notes is a hierarchical note taking application with focus on building large personal knowledge bases. You can look at Trilium as your own self-hosted Wikipedia. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Trilium on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.

💡Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Trilium v0.62.6 release.
