Warning

This is not a complete recipe - it's a component of the autopirate "uber-recipe", but has been split into its own page to reduce complexity.

LazyLibrarian

LazyLibrarian is a tool to follow authors and grab metadata for all your digital reading needs. It uses a combination of Goodreads Librarything and optionally GoogleBooks as sources for author info and book info. Features include:

  • Find authors and add them to the database
  • List all books of an author and mark ebooks or audiobooks as 'wanted'.
  • When processing the downloaded books it will save a cover picture (if available) and save all metadata into metadata.opf next to the bookfile (calibre compatible format)
  • AutoAdd feature for book management tools like Calibre which must have books in flattened directory structure, or use calibre to import your books into an existing calibre library
  • LazyLibrarian can also be used to search for and download magazines, and monitor for new issues

Tip

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

Assemble more tools..

Continue through the list of tools below, adding whichever tools your want to use, and finishing with the end section:

Chef's Notes 📓

  1. The calibre-server container co-exists within the Lazy Librarian (LL) containers so that LL can automatically add a book to Calibre using the calibre-server interface. The calibre library can then be properly viewed using the calibre-web recipe.
  2. In many cases, tools will integrate with each other. I.e., Radarr needs to talk to SABnzbd and NZBHydra, Ombi needs to talk to Radarr, etc. Since each tool runs within the stack under its own name, just refer to each tool by name (i.e. "radarr"), and docker swarm will resolve the name to the appropriate container. You can identify the tool-specific port by looking at the docker-compose service definition.
