Cardigann a server for adding extra indexers to Sonarr, SickRage and CouchPotato via Torznab and TorrentPotato proxies. Behind the scenes Cardigann logs in and runs searches and then transforms the results into a compatible format.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/cardigann should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture Tag
x86-64 amd64-latest
arm64 arm64v8-latest
armhf arm32v7-latest


Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container from this image.


docker create \
  --name=cardigann \
  -e PUID=1000 \
  -e PGID=1000 \
  -p 5060:5060 \
  -v <path to data>:/config \
  --restart unless-stopped \


Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

version: "2"
    image: linuxserver/cardigann
    container_name: cardigann
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - <path to data>:/config
      - 5060:5060
    restart: unless-stopped


Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter Function
5060 The port for the Cardigann webinterface

Environment Variables (-e)

Env Function
PUID=1000 for UserID - see below for explanation
PGID=1000 for GroupID - see below for explanation
SOCKS_PROXY=IP:PORT for using a socks proxy (optional)
HTTP_PROXY=IP:PORT for using a HTTP proxy (optional)

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume Function
/config Cardigann config

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

  $ id username
    uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Application Setup

Access the webui at <your-ip>:5060, for more information check out Cardigann.

By adding a variable to the run command, SOCKS_PROXY or HTTP_PROXY cardigann can be used with a proxy, eg -e SOCKS_PROXY=localhost:1080

The folder /config/definitions can be used to add additional tracker definitions (for more info see Additional definitions ).
