Beets is a music library manager and not, for the most part, a music player. It does include a simple player plugin and an experimental Web-based player, but it generally leaves actual sound-reproduction to specialized tools.

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/beets 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

Version Tags

This image provides various versions that are available via tags. latest tag usually provides the latest stable version. Others are considered under development and caution must be exercised when using them.

Stable Beets Releases

nightly

Built against head of Beets git, generally considered unstable but a likely choice for power users of the application.

Usage

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

docker

docker create \
--name=beets \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-p 8337:8337 \
-v </path/to/appdata/config>:/config \
-v </path/to/music/library>:/music \
-v </path/to/ingest>:/downloads \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/beets

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

Parameters

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.

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)

Support Info

  • Shell access whilst the container is running:

    • docker exec -it beets /bin/bash

  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime:

    • docker logs -f beets

  • Container version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' beets

  • Image version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' linuxserver/beets
