In 2015, I published a docker-compose stack I’d developed to automate media discovery and management with SABnzbd and related tools (Radarr, CouchPotato, etc).
Once the cutting edge of the “internet” (pre-world-wide-web and mosiac days), Usenet is now a murky, geeky alternative to torrents for file-sharing. However, it’s cool geeky, especially if you’re into having a fully automated media platform.
A good starter for the usenet scene is Reddit’s r/usenet. Because it’s so damn complicated, a host of automated tools exist to automate the process of finding, downloading, and managing content. The tools included in this recipe are as follows:
- SABnzbd : downloads data from usenet servers based on .nzb definitions
- NZBHydra : acts as a “meta-indexer”, so that your downloading tools (radarr, sonarr, etc) only need to be setup for a single indexes. Also produces interesting stats on indexers, which helps when evaluating which indexers are performing well.
- Sonarr : finds, downloads and manages TV shows
- Radarr : finds, downloads and manages movies
- Mylar : finds, downloads and manages comic books
- Headphones : finds, downloads and manages music
- Lazy Librarian : finds, downloads and manages ebooks
- ombi : provides an interface to request additions to a plex library using the above tools
- plexpy : provides interesting stats on your plex server’s usage
This recipe presents a method to combine these tools into a single swarm deployment, and make them available securely…
