Bazarr is a companion application to Sonarr and Radarr. It manages and downloads subtitles based on your requirements. You define your preferences by TV show or movie and Bazarr takes care of everything for you.

Installation

  1. Connect to your slot through SSH

  2. Create a Python 3 virtualenv with the instructions found here or use an existing one.

  3. Download the latest version of Bazarr

     git clone https://github.com/morpheus65535/bazarr.git
    
  4. Activate your Python 3 virtualenv if it is not already active. If you are using a different directory for your virtualenv, use that directory instead.

    source ~/virtualenv3/bin/activate
    
  5. Change your directory

     cd bazarr
    
  6. Install bazarr's Python dependencies

     pip install -r requirements.txt
    
  7. Launch Bazarr. Port 27219 has been automatically generated for you, but you may use another 5 digit port between 10000 and 65535.

     screen -dmS bazarr ~/virtualenv3/bin/python3 ~/bazarr/bazarr.py -p 27219
    

Access Bazarr at http://server.whatbox.ca:27219 and follow the configuration wizard. Once Bazarr is configured, click on the link near the top of the page to restart Bazarr. Click on Settings and change Authentication to Forms (Login Page). Add a username and password you wish to use to access Bazarr. Click the Save button at the top of the page and then click the link to restart Bazarr again. You will be redirected to the login page where you can login with the username and password you provided.

To update Bazarr, change to its directory and pull the latest files from GitHub: pkill -f bazarr.py; cd ~/bazarr; git pull

Automatically restart

  1. Make a file to be used for the script. touch ~/bazarr_restart.cron

  2. Edit the file and enter the text below. nano -w ~/bazarr_restart.cron

     #!/bin/bash
     if pgrep -fx "/home/user/virtualenv3/bin/python /home/user/bazarr/bazarr.py -p 27219" > /dev/null
     then
         echo "bazarr is running."
     else 
         echo "bazarr is not running, starting bazarr"
         /home/user/virtualenv3/bin/python /home/user/bazarr/bazarr.py -p 27219
     fi
     exit
    
  3. Save the file with Ctrl+x and the "y" and Enter to accept overwriting.
