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.

RTorrent / ruTorrent

RTorrent is a popular CLI-based bittorrent client, and ruTorrent is a powerful web interface for rtorrent.

Choose incoming port

When using a torrent client from behind NAT (which swarm, by nature, is), you typically need to set a static port for inbound torrent communications. In the example below, I've set the port to 36258. You'll need to configure /var/data/autopirate/rtorrent/rtorrent/rtorrent.rc with the equivalent port.

Inclusion into AutoPirate

To include ruTorrent in your AutoPirate stack, include the following in your autopirate.yml stack definition file:

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. 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.
