Kanzi, formerly titled Kodi-Alexa, this custom skill is the ultimate voice remote control for navigating Kodi. It can do anything you can think of (100+ intents). This container also contains lexigram-cli to setup Kanzi with an Amazon Developer Account and automatically deploy it to Amazon.

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/kanzi 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

armhf

arm32v7-latest

Usage

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

docker

docker create \
--name=kanzi \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-e INVOCATION_NAME=kanzi \
-e URL_ENDPOINT=https://server.com/kanzi/ \
-p 8000:8000 \
-v </path/to/appdata/config>:/config \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/kanzi

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

environment:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- TZ=Europe/London

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

8000

Application Port

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.

INVOCATION_NAME=kanzi

Specify an invocation name for this skill, use either kanzi or kod.

URL_ENDPOINT=https://server.com/kanzi/

Specify the URL at which the webserver is reachable either https://kanzi.server.com/ or https://server.com/kanzi/ Note the trailing slash MUST be included.

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

Configuration files.

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

Initial setup

  • Once you start the container for the first time, you need to perform some steps before use. 1. Create an Amazon Developer Account here. 2. Open a terminal in the /config directory of the docker container docker exec -itw /config kanzi bash 3. Enter lexigram login --no-browser true to setup your AWS credentials and copy the URL into a browser, login to your Amazon Developer Account and copy/paste the resulting authorisation code back into the terminal and press enter. 4. Edit the file kodi.config according to your local setup and this will be used by the included gunicorn server to respond to requests. 5. Restart the container to automatically deploy the Kanzi skill. 6. Reverse proxy this container with our LetsEncrypt container which contains preconfigured templates for reverse proxying the Kanzi container on either a subdomain or subfolder utilising Docker custom networking. Alternatively, if you already have an Nginx reverse proxy set up, you can use one of these location blocks to reverse proxy Kanzi to a subfolder or subdomain respectively.

    Subfolder

    location /kanzi {
    rewrite ^/kanzi/(.*) /$1 break;
    proxy_pass https://$IP-ADDRESS:8000;
    proxy_redirect https://$IP-ADDRESS:8000 /kanzi;
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $server_name;
    }

    Subdomain

    location / {
    proxy_pass https://$IP-ADDRESS:8000;
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $server_name;
    }
