Docker PullsDocker StarsBuild Status

Beets is a music library manager and not, for the most part, a music player. It does include a simple player plugin and an experimental Web-based player, but it generally leaves actual sound-reproduction to specialized tools.



docker create \
--name=beets \
-v <path to data>:/config \
-e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid>  \
-p 1234:1234 \


The parameters are split into two halves, separated by a colon, the left hand side representing the host and the right the container side. For example with a port -p external:internal - what this shows is the port mapping from internal to external of the container. So -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 http://192.168.x.x:8080 would show you what's running INSIDE the container on port 80.

  • -p 8337 - the port(s)
  • -v /config - Configuration files
  • -v /music - Music library location
  • -v /downloads - Non-processed music
  • -e PGID for GroupID - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID for UserID - see below for explanation

It is based on alpine linux with s6 overlay, for shell access whilst the container is running do docker exec -it beets /bin/bash.

User / Group Identifiers

Sometimes when using data 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 the data volume directory on the host is owned by the same user you specify and it will "just work" ™.

In this instance PUID=1001 and PGID=1001. To find yours use id user as below:

  $ id <dockeruser>
    uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)

Setting up the application

Edit the config file in /config

To edit the config from within the container use beet config -e

For a command prompt as user abc docker exec -it -u abc beets bash

See Beets for more info.
