Native install on NAS / Synology
#1  Henning 07-01-2020, 05:21 AM
Dear all

I would like to suggest a native build of calibre for Synology. I'm using a docker system on my NAS to run calibre - and it works but has several short comings.

I actually have no knowledge how difficult it would be to develop and then maintain another build. The Synology system is somehow close to Linux. ...

I would like to hear your opinion on this suggestion.

Yours

Henning, sorry for waking up an old thread I'd like to give my two cents on the subject.

Even if Synology DSM (DiskStation Manager) is based on BSD it's still a storage only solution without any native GUI besides the webadmin console thus you would have no use of a native Calibre port other than store the book library it self.

In other words it's better to use it as pure storage.

Calibre does work on Synology. Here is the information I found.

Can you get Calibre 5 to work on Synology? I want to be able to highlight.

Neither of the Synology community packages (COPS and BicBucStriim) are calibre though the repository seems to have used the calibre icon for them. There are threads about both in the calibre Related Tools subforum. There are also a couple of threads about calibre and Synology, a search for Synology might help you to find them.

I'm kind of curious what the use case would be for calibre native to a NAS? It's not as if you normally logon to the NAS and run an application; most of the time the interface is through a web interface.
