Just ask and I will do my best to answer as quickly as I can
Similar to my QNAP QPKG (here) here is a project to build a custom Synology SPK package for installation on your Synology NAS.
Provides similar benefits
- integrated UI to manage the configuration file
- integrated into the Synology desktop package manager
- makes the log files viewable
- easy installation/update without requiring new shares or even a separate PC
- automatic restart when the NAS restarts (after update for example)
