GitHub Release MicroBadger Layers MicroBadger Size Docker Pulls Docker Stars Build Status

Booksonic is a server and an app for streaming your audiobooks to any pc or android phone. Most of the functionality is also availiable on other platforms that have apps for subsonic.

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/booksonic 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

Usage

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

docker

docker create \
--name=booksonic \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-e CONTEXT_PATH=url-base \
-p 4040:4040 \
-v </path/to/appdata/config>:/config \
-v </path/to/audiobooks>:/audiobooks \
-v </path/to/podcasts>:/podcasts \
-v </path/to/othermedia>:/othermedia \
--restart unless-stopped \

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)

Application Setup

Default user/pass is admin/admin
