I have a feature request ...

Provide a Synology NAS AddOn to allow the server to run from these devices

There are many SMB's running their office tools on their Synology NAS. It would be pretty nice to have the Manic Time Server running on this platform too. MT is just the kind of tool/facility to run from a NAS, providing secure access from everywhere.

        I have a Synology DS214+ with CPU MARVELL Armada XP MV78230. Does it work there too?

      • Marco commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        here I am - I can test it on a DS218+ which has an INTEL Celeron J3355

        NAS yes! For a small office, running the server off a QNAP, MyCloud, Synology, or similar NAS drive would be ideal.

        I would also prefer to use the server side on our Synology NAS! Hope this will be heard and soon you will release such a plugin.

        @MTSupport - That's really good to hear. Understand it's a big undertaking but it should be a worthy one. Definitely worth waiting for a linux port and I think Docker containers would be great.

        One less VM to run on my server! :)

        Currently ManicTime is windows based so docker would not help. You still cant run windows apps on Linux even if there is a Docker container.
        By the end of the year I hope the server will run on .Net core, which would mean it will also run on Linux. Then we can also create a Docker. But until we have a Linux version there is no way to run it on Nas.

        Agreed that Docker is probably a better way to go than a straight Synology port however as the MT server is currently a Windows based software and I'm unaware of any Windows-on-Docker containers that run on a Linux host this whole concept might be a ways off.

        If the whole of the server is written in .NET (and not just portions) I think there are some .NET ports for linux that might make it easier. (Mono is a .net port I believe, but I'm not a dev so can't say how complete it or any .net port is)

        I'd definitely like to see a linux based MT server. From there a Docker container should be easy enough

      • Martin Rudat commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Given Docker being available on (certain models?) of Synlogy NAS, it might cover more bases to create a docker container for the ManicTime server, rather than one specific to Synology.
