01 - Adding TrueCharts to SCALE¶
Adding the TrueCharts Community App Catalog is relatively straight forward.
- Make sure your storage-pool is created and working
- Make sure you have a working internet connection and can reach github and truecharts.org from the host system.
When opening the Apps menu item on TrueNAS SCALE for the first time, you get prompted to setup a new pool for Apps. This will create a new dataset on the selected pool called "ix-applications", which will contain all docker containers and most application data, unless specified otherwise.
- Go to "Apps" in the left hand menu
- Select the "Manage Catalogs" tab
Click "Add Catalog" and enter the required information:
- Preferred Trains:
We also heavily advise people starting with TrueCharts and the rest of this guide to ensure that
stable are added to preferred trains. Without those two trains you will be unable to follow all the steps we've outlined in the "Quick Start Guides". You may enable other trains as well, see below for a description of the contents of each train.
Difference between Stable and Incubator¶
TrueCharts has multiple "trains": All trains contain Apps that should work fine. However they have a slightly different meaning:
stablecontains most of our Apps. These are considered stable and working.
corecontains important Apps that are used to supply features like "ingress" (Traefik) or advanced networking to our Apps.
gamescontains game servers (eg. Minecraft, Valheim etc)
dependencycontains apps that are mostly used as dependencies. This train is not supported, besides from bug fixes.
incubatorThese Apps are still in development and/or are not considered to be of high-enough quality.
