What's GAZE?

It's a true turnkey open-source media center solution. It will deploy, configure and network the following services, making use of Docker's ecosystem:

  • Sonarr, to manage TV series downloads.
  • Radarr, to manage movie downloads.
  • Jackett, to manage torrent trackers.
  • Transmission, a torrent client.
  • Plex, to encode and stream media to devices.

Additionally, to aggregate all of the above in to a single user-friendly service, we also provide:

  • GAZE Control, a command-line tool to manage the full stack.
  • GAZE Web, a web-UI to aggregate all of the above.


Although GAZE should run on any system with Docker, we test builds on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and later so suggest it as a known good configuration.

To install the gaze command-line tool and deploy the full media center stack, simply paste the following command into a shell. On completion, you will be presented with all the details you need to access your services:

curl -L > /usr/local/bin/gaze && chmod +x /usr/local/bin/gaze && gaze bootstrap

If you get a Permission denied error, try sudo -i then the above command again.


Web interface

GAZE comes complete with a web-UI which can be accessed via browser at https://localhost:

Further documentation on GAZE Web can be found here.

Command-line interface

To make life easy, the gaze command-line tool can be used to manage the full stack of media center services, including the GAZE web-UI service. Usage can be seen using the following command:

gaze --help

Further documentation on GAZE Control can be found here.
