Minio Packaging for Synology NAS
This repo can create a Synology NAS SPK file suitable for a home user. If you don't know what Minio is, please take look.
What this is
Minio offers a wide-variety of features. This repo only exposes enough of Minio to get started. That is:
- fetch and build Minio for the Synology ARM or i386-platform
- package Minio in a SPK format
- Targets for ARM or i386-based Synology
Minio has elected to support Synology NAS's through Docker Containers. In my opinion, targeting Docker is the correct decision for Cloud-base storage. However, if you have a consumer-grade Synology NAS, using Docker is a non-starter: I hope that this side-project will help close the gap.
As of right now, it only supports:
- non-SSL encryption
- setting the ACCESS and SECRET key
Here Be Dragons
Removing the Minio installation from the NAS will result in your data being deleted.
THIS ONLY WORKS FOR ARM-7 or i386 NAS's right now.
Due to the inclusion of Minio's Art Work, re-distribution of the SPK may violate their terms. Please see LICENSE-Artwork for more information..
Credit where Credit is Due
I based this repo off the great work from a Gitea SPK that I also use on my Synology NAS.
You will need:
- A Synology NAS
Docker is used to as the build system and to manage dependencies, specifically:
- Artwork is fetched remotely. This requires tooling to get the artwork, unzip to extract it and ImageMagick to transform the icon sizes.
- The building of Minio is done in a Debian Stretch Golang container. This was done to make the packaging more accessible to people who just want an
spkbut don't want to setup Go.
After cloning/forking this repo:
make init. This step fetches the latest release of Minio and the icons.
make i386. During this step, a docker container will cross compile Minio. It will take a bit.
- Go to your NAS's package manager
- Click Manually uplaod
- Follow the dialogs
- Login at
<port>was the one you selected in the dialogs.
I promise not to be a jerk. If you improve, or add a feature, please send it my way; I'm happy to consider it. Opensource should be inclusive.
