Installing awscli on Synology

This will allow you to do useful things such as syncing a S3 bucket to disk. Working on my DS918+.

  1. Add a custom package source for cphub.net. From Package Center, select Settings -> Package Sources and add http://www.cphub.net.

  2. In the Community packages section, search for Easy Bootstrap Installer and install ipkg (not opkg).

  3. With ipkg now installed, use this to install Python 2.7.

     sudo /opt/bin/ipkg install py27-setuptools
    
  4. Then install pip and awscli.

     sudo /opt/bin/easy_install-2.7 pip
     sudo /opt/local/bin/pip install awscli
