Join the chat at Average time to resolve an issue Percentage of issues still open

This is Plex Requests but written with Meteor! It's been updated with an approval system, basic issue reporting, and a new visual style!

⚠️ Warning regarding Meteor 1.3 ⚠️

Meteor recently updated to 1.3, and while we don't expect any issues we advise you don't update your installation yet. You will get prompted to run meteor update once the update has downloaded in the background. Please refrain from running it, until we can confirm everything will continue to work.

    • We've added the ability to create dynamic custom notifications through the use of tags; The available tags are listed and described below:

      • <type> - Type of request that was made, either a "Movie" or "TV"
      • <user> - The user that placed the request
      • <issues> - The issues associated with the request
      • <year> - Year the requested content was released. For TV shows, this is the year the first episode aired.
      • <link> - The link to the requested medias TVDB/TVMaze information page.
    • These tags can be used anywhere in the Notifications body and title. The default settings are an example how to utilize the tags in your messages.


  • Installation is straightforward: please update to Meteor 1.2.1, download and extract the latest release, cd into the directory, and run meteor. For Windows users check out this blog post for installation instructions using Git!

  • On first run navigate to http://localhost:3000/admin and create an admin account with an email address and password. If this isn't done someone else can create the admin account to your application. This account is only used for logging in, email integration isn't enabled. Once logged in, you can configure your settings and get things going.
