FlexConnect - A Helper for Flex TV
FlexConnect is a python based web application for monitoring, analytics and control of Plex Media Server.
Our images support multiple architectures such as
armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.
digitalhigh/flexconnect should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.
The architectures supported by this image are:
Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container.
docker create \ --name=FlexConnect \ -e PUID=1000 \ -e PGID=1000 \ -e TZ=Europe/London \ -v <path to data>:/app \ -v <path to plex data>:/plex \ --restart unless-stopped \ --network=host \ digitalhigh/flexconnect
Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.
version: "2" services: flexconnect: image: digitalhigh/flexconnect container_name: flexconnect environment: - PUID=1000 - PGID=1000 - TZ=Europe/London volumes: - :/app - :/plex restart: unless-stopped network_mode: "host"
## Parameters Container images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate `<external>:<internal>` respectively. For example, `-p 8080:80` would expose port `80` from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port `8080` outside the container. | Parameter | Function | | :----: | --- | | `-e PUID=1000` | for UserID - see below for explanation | | `-e PGID=1000` | for GroupID - see below for explanation | | `-e TZ=Europe/London` | Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London. | | `-v /app` | Contains flexconnect files. | | `-v /plex` | Map this to Plex data directory - recommended RO. | ## User / Group Identifiers When using volumes (`-v` flags) permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user `PUID` and group `PGID`. Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic. In this instance `PUID=1000` and `PGID=1000`, to find yours use `id user` as below:
$ id username uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)
