This project is a new fork and is recruiting development help. If you are able to help out please contact us.

Please see our troubleshooting and contributing guidelines before submitting any issues or pull requests

Jackett works as a proxy server: it translates queries from apps (Sonarr, Radarr, SickRage, CouchPotato, Mylar, Lidarr, DuckieTV, qBittorrent, Nefarious 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.

Developer note: The software implements the Torznab (with hybrid nZEDb/Newznab category numbering) and TorrentPotato APIs.

A third-party Golang SDK for Jackett is available from webtor-io/go-jackett

Aggregate indexers

A special “all” indexer is available at /api/v2.0/indexers/all/results/torznab. It will query all configured indexers and return the combined results.

If your client supports multiple feeds it's recommended to add each indexer directly instead of using the all indexer. Using the all indexer has no advantages (besides reduced management overhead), only disadvantages:

  • you lose control over indexer specific settings (categories, search modes, etc.)
  • mixing search modes (IMDB, query, etc.) might cause low-quality results
  • indexer specific categories (>= 100000) can't be used.
  • slow indexers will slow down the overall result
  • total results are limited to 1000

To get all Jackett indexers including their capabilities you can use t=indexers on the all indexer. To get only configured/unconfigured indexers you can also add configured=true/false as a query parameter.

Filter indexers

Another special “filter” indexer is available at /api/v2.0/indexers/<filter>/results/torznab It will query the configured indexers that match the <filter> expression criterias and return the combined results as “all”.

Supported filters Filter | Condition -|- type:<type> | where the indexer type is equal to <type> tag:<tag> | where the indexer tags contains <tag> lang:<tag> | where the indexer language start with <lang> test:{passed\|failed} | where the last indexer test performed passed or failed

Supported operators Operator | Condition -|- !<expr> | where not <expr> <expr1>+<expr2>[+<expr3>...] | where <expr1> and <expr2> [and <expr3>...] <expr1>,<expr2>[,<expr3>...] | where <expr1> or <expr2> [or <expr3>...]

Example: The “filter” indexer at /api/v2.0/indexers/tag:group1,!type:private+lang:en/results/torznab will query all the configured indexers tagged with group1 or all the indexers not private and with en language (en-en,en-us,...)

Installation on Windows

We recommend you install Jackett as a Windows service using the supplied installer. You may also download the zipped version if you would like to configure everything manually.

To get started with using the installer for Jackett, follow the steps below:

  1. Check if you need any .NET prerequisites installed, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/install/windows?tabs=net50#dependencies
  2. Download the latest version of the Windows installer, “Jackett.Installer.Windows.exe” from the releases page.
  3. When prompted if you would like this app to make changes to your computer, select “yes”.
  4. If you would like to install Jackett as a Windows Service, make sure the “Install as Windows Service” checkbox is filled.
  5. Once the installation has finished, check the “Launch Jackett” box to get started.
  6. Navigate your web browser to http://127.0.0.1:9117
  7. You're now ready to begin adding your trackers and using Jackett.

When installed as a service the tray icon acts as a way to open/start/stop Jackett. If you opted to not install it as a service then Jackett will run its web server from the tray tool.

Jackett can also be run from the command line if you would like to see log messages (Ensure the server isn't already running from the tray/service). This can be done by using “JackettConsole.exe” (for Command Prompt), found in the Jackett data folder: “%ProgramData%\Jackett”.

Install on Linux (AMDx64)

On most operating systems all the required dependencies will already be present. In case they are not, you can refer to this page https://github.com/dotnet/core/blob/master/Documentation/linux-prereqs.md

Install as service

  1. Download and extract the latest Jackett.Binaries.LinuxAMDx64.tar.gz release from the releases page
  2. To install Jackett as a service, open a Terminal, cd to the jackett folder and run sudo ./install_service_systemd.sh You need root permissions to install the service. The service will start on each logon. You can always stop it by running systemctl stop jackett.service from Terminal. You can start it again it using systemctl start jackett.service. Logs are stored as usual under ~/.config/Jackett/log.txt and also in journalctl -u jackett.service.

Run without installing as a service

Download and extract the latest Jackett.Binaries.LinuxAMDx64.tar.gz release from the releases page, open a Terminal, cd to the jackett folder and run Jackett with the command ./jackett

home directory

If you want to run it with a user without a /home directory you need to add Environment=XDG_CONFIG_HOME=/path/to/folder to your systemd file, this folder will be used to store your config files.

Install on Linux (ARMv7 or above)

On most operating systems all the required dependencies will already be present. In case they are not, you can refer to this page https://github.com/dotnet/core/blob/master/Documentation/linux-prereqs.md

Install as service

  1. Download and extract the latest Jackett.Binaries.LinuxARM32.tar.gz or Jackett.Binaries.LinuxARM64.tar.gz (32 bit is the most common on ARM) release from the releases page
  2. To install Jackett as a service, open a Terminal, cd to the jackett folder and run sudo ./install_service_systemd.sh You need root permissions to install the service. The service will start on each logon. You can always stop it by running systemctl stop jackett.service from Terminal. You can start it again it using systemctl start jackett.service. Logs are stored as usual under ~/.config/Jackett/log.txt and also in journalctl -u jackett.service.

Run without installing as a service

Download and extract the latest Jackett.Binaries.LinuxARM32.tar.gz or Jackett.Binaries.LinuxARM64.tar.gz (32 bit is the most common on ARM) release from the releases page, open a Terminal, cd to the jackett folder and run Jackett with the command ./jackett

home directory

If you want to run it with a user without a /home directory you need to add Environment=XDG_CONFIG_HOME=/path/to/folder to your systemd file, this folder will be used to store your config files.

Installation on Linux (ARMv6 or below)

  1. Install Mono 5.8 or better (using the latest stable release is recommended)
    • Follow the instructions on the mono website and install the mono-devel and the ca-certificates-mono packages.
    • On Red Hat/CentOS/openSUSE/Fedora the mono-locale-extras package is also required.
  2. Install libcurl:
    • Debian/Ubuntu: apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
    • Redhat/Fedora: yum install libcurl-devel
    • For other distros see the Curl docs.
  3. Download and extract the latest Jackett.Binaries.Mono.tar.gz release from the releases page and run Jackett using mono with the command mono --debug JackettConsole.exe.
  4. (Optional) To install Jackett as a service, open the Terminal and run sudo ./install_service_systemd_mono.sh You need root permissions to install the service. The service will start on each logon. You can always stop it by running systemctl stop jackett.service from Terminal. You can start it again it using systemctl start jackett.service. Logs are stored as usual under ~/.config/Jackett/log.txt and also in journalctl -u jackett.service.

If you want to run it with a user without a /home directory you need to add Environment=XDG_CONFIG_HOME=/path/to/folder to your systemd file, this folder will be used to store your config files.

Mono must be compiled with the Roslyn compiler (default), using MCS will cause “An error has occurred.” errors (See https://github.com/Jackett/Jackett/issues/2704).

Running Jackett behind a reverse proxy

When running jackett behind a reverse proxy make sure that the original hostname of the request is passed to Jackett. If HTTPS is used also set the X-Forwarded-Proto header to “https”. Don't forget to adjust the “Base path override” Jackett option accordingly.

Example config for apache:

<Location /jackett>
    ProxyPreserveHost On
    RequestHeader set X-Forwarded-Proto expr=%{REQUEST_SCHEME}
    ProxyPass http://127.0.0.1:9117
    ProxyPassReverse http://127.0.0.1:9117
</Location>

Example config for Nginx:

location /jackett {
	proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:9117;
	proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
	proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
	proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
	proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $http_host;
	proxy_redirect off;
}

Search Cache

Jackett has an internal cache to increase search speed and to reduce the number of requests to the torrent sites. The default values should be good for most users. If you have problems, you can reduce the TTL value in the configuration or even disable the cache. Keep in mind that you can be banned by the sites if you make a lot of requests.

  • Cache TTL (seconds): (default 2100 / 35 minutes) It indicates how long the results can remain in the cache.
  • Cache max results per indexer: (default 1000) How many results are kept in cache for each indexer. This limit is used to limit the use of RAM. If you make many requests and you have enough memory, increase this number.

Configuring FlareSolverr

Some indexers are protected by CloudFlare or similar services and Jackett is not able to solve the challenges. For these cases, FlareSolverr has been integrated into Jackett. This service is in charge of solving the challenges and configuring Jackett with the necessary cookies. Setting up this service is optional, most indexers don't need it.

  • Install FlareSolverr service (following their instructions)
  • Configure FlareSolverr API URL in Jackett. For example: http://172.17.0.2:8191

Configuring OMDb

This feature is used as a fallback (when using the aggregate Indexer) to get the movie/series title if only the IMDB ID is provided in the request. To use it, please just request a free API key on OMDb (1,000 daily requests limit) and paste the key in Jackett
