Short Description
Docker image for running CouchPotato in a Raspberry PI
Full Description


You can run the image with the following command.

docker run -d -p 5050:5050 -v /path/to/movies:/movies -v /path/to/config:/config --restart=always --name couchpotato adrianmo/rpi-couchpotato

Note the --restart=always parameter, that will restart the Docker container every time it stops. We need that because CouchPotato will update itself periodically and restart the process, causing the Docker container to stop.


You can optionally build the image adrianmo/rpi-couchpotato with the latest CouchPotato version. To do that just execute the following command once you have checked out the source repository.

docker build -t adrianmo/rpi-couchpotato .

Docker daemon on the Raspberry PI

The Docker daemon relies on several packages that are specified as dependencies. Most OS kernels for the Raspberry PI must be rebuild to meet the dependencies, which can be a tedious work if you are not familiar with it.

That's why I would recommend you to download a preconfigured SD card image for the PI which will already contain everything you need to run Docker on it.

As of preconfigured images, the Hypriot team created an excellent step-by-step guide to installing their customized image.
