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

Jackett works as a proxy server: it translates queries from apps (Sonarr, SickRage, CouchPotato, Mylar, etc) into tracker-site-specific http queries, parses the html response, then sends results back to the requesting software. This allows for getting recent uploads (like RSS) and performing searches. Jackett is a single repository of maintained indexer scraping & translation logic - removing the burden from other apps.

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/jackett 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:

Usage

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

docker

docker create \
--name=jackett \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-e RUN_OPTS=<run options here> `#optional` \
-p 9117:9117 \
-v <path to data>:/config \
-v <path to blackhole>:/downloads \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/jackett

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

---
version: "2"
services:
jackett:
image: linuxserver/jackett
container_name: jackett
environment:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- TZ=Europe/London
- RUN_OPTS=<run options here> #optional
volumes:
- <path to data>:/config
- <path to blackhole>:/downloads
ports:
- 9117:9117
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.

Ports (-p)

Parameter

Function

9117

WebUI

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

TZ=Europe/London

Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London.

RUN_OPTS=<run options here>

Optionally specify additional arguments to be passed. EG. --ProxyConnection=10.0.0.100:1234.

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

Where Jackett should store its config file.

/downloads

Path to torrent blackhole.

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

The web interface is at <your-ip>:9117 , configure various trackers and connections to other apps there. More info at Jackett.

Disable autoupdates in the webui to prevent jackett crashing, the image is refreshed when new versions are released.
