Komga

So you've just watched a bunch of superhero movies, and you're suddenly inspired to deep-dive into the weird world of comic books? You're already rocking AutoPirate with Mylar and NZBGet to grab content, but how to manage and enjoy your growing collection?

Komga Screenshot

Komga is a media server with a beautifully slick interface, allowing you to read your comics / manga in CBZ, CBR, PDF and epub format. Komga includes an integrated web reader, as well as a Tachiyomi plugin and an OPDS server for integration with other mobile apps such as Chunky on iPad.

  • Traefik Forward Auth to secure your Traefik-exposed services with an additional layer of authentication
  • AutoPirate components (specifically Mylar), for searching for, downloading, and managing comic books

Preparation

Setup data locations

First we create a directory to hold the komga database, logs and other persistent data:

mkdir /var/data/komga

Setup Docker Swarm

Create a docker swarm config file in docker-compose syntax (v3), something like this:

Tip

I automatically and instantly share (with my sponsors) a private "premix" git repository, which includes necessary docker-compose and env files for all published recipes. This means that sponsors can launch any recipe with just a git pull and a docker stack deploy 👍.

🚀 Update: Premix now includes an ansible playbook, so that sponsors can deploy an entire stack + recipes, with a single ansible command! (more here)

version: "3.2"

Serving

Avengers Assemble!

Launch the Komga stack by running docker stack deploy komga -c <path -to-docker-compose.yml>

Log into your new instance at https://YOUR-FQDN. Since it's a fresh installation, Komga will prompt you to setup a username and password, after which you'll be able to setup your library, and tweak all teh butt0ns!

Save teh wurld!

If Komga scratches your particular itch, please join me in sponsoring the developer ❤

Chef's notes 📓


  1. Since Komga doesn't need to communicate with any other services, we don't need a separate overlay network for it. Provided Traefik can reach Komga via the traefik_public overlay network, we've got all we need.
