Setup Nefarious to automate TV & Movie watching.

Nefarious is a web application which can automatically search torrents and download TV & Movies for you.

Nefarious uses Jackett for torrents searching and Transmission for torrents downloading.


  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • docker
    • docker-compose



  1. Install docker and docker-compose
    • # install docker
      curl -sSL | sh
      # install docker-compose (change the version number if there's a higher one)
      sudo curl -L "$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
      sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
    • Check if docker and docker-compose are properly installed.
      docker --version
      docker-compose version
  2. Install Nefarious
    • Clone the Nefarious Repo
      git clone
    • Install with docker-compose
      cd nefarious
      sudo docker-compose up -d

Once the installation is completed, Nefarious web interface is listening on http://localhost:8000, Jackett is listening on http://localhost:9117, and http://localhost:9091 for Transmission.


The movie(or TV seires) you choose to watch will be downloaded once there’s a torrent released.

As you can see in the screenshots below, the search function doesn’t support fuzzy search——I have to add a space between ‘Mr.’ and ‘Robot’ to find the show(love this show btw 🙂 ).
