Here is what I did to install YAC Reader Library Server on my Synology NAS (DS418play):


Step 1 - Install Docker

You must first install Docker on your Synology NAS.
www.synology.com/en-ca/dsm/packages/Docker

If your Synology model does not officially support Docker, you can side-load it by downloading the spk here (as of 2022-08-03 the latest version is Docker-x64-20.10.3-1306.spk):
archive.synology.com/download/Package/Docker


Step 2 - Install the YAC Reader Library Server Container

In Synology DSM, open the Docker package that you installed in step 1, then select Registry in the side-menu and search for the term "YACReaderLibrary". There will be several results. I used this one: "Mullion/yacreaderlibrary-server-docker"

Double-click it to download the image, then select Image in the Docker side-menu and you should see it listed there (you may have to wait for it to finish downloading).

Double-click the image to install the container, then follow these steps:

a) Network: Specify the network for this container. I selected "Use the same network as Docker Host". Click Next.

b) General Settings: I enabled auto-restart. Click Next.

c) Volume Settings: Click Add Folder then navigate to your comic library and select it. For the mount path I used "/comics". Click Next.

d) Summary: Click Done.


Step 3 - Set up YAC Reader Library Server

Select Container in the Docker side-menu, then double-click on the container we just installed to view its details. Click on Terminal, then Create to add a bash terminal. Click bash in the side menu, then enter the following commands in the terminal as needed:

Create a new library:
YACReaderLibraryServer create-library LibraryName /comics
Refresh your library (do this after adding/removing comics):
YACReaderLibraryServer update-library /comics
List all existing YACReader libraries:
YACReaderLibraryServer list-libraries
Remove a library:
YACReaderLibraryServer remove-library LibraryName
Legend:
LibraryName = whichever name you give your library.
/comics = this is the "mount path" that we designated in step 2c.

These steps worked for me. Good luck!

Thanks Renns. I tried those terminal commands, though after hitting return, nothing seems to happen - it just seems to move onto the next line instead of executing the command?

Hmm… were you in the default “muallin-yacreaderlibrary-server-docker1” terminal, or the “bash” terminal? I was getting the same response as you (nothing happened) in the blank default terminal, but when I clicked “create” to add a second terminal and then clicked on “bash” to open it, that new terminal opened with the following line:
root@muallin-yacreaderlibrary-server-docker1:/sec/git#
I then entered my commands in that terminal and they worked.

I followed Renns' tutorial to set up the library server in my Synology NAS via Docker.
The library has been created but I have nothing when I go to http://local-ip-nas:8080 in the YACReader iPadOS app or in the browser.

Any help?

Ok I found the issue. I had to enable the port 8080 for local IP addresses in the firewall rules.

If you are interested into upgrading your docker with a 9.9.2 version of the YACReaderLibrary headless server, you can follow the excellent tutorial from Renns above but use wehartgames/yacreaderlibraryserver from the docker hub instead of the muallin one.

Enjoy

I'm kind of new to this, but how did you enable the port? Was it under Docker, Synology, Router?
