This guide assumes you already have a Plex Media Server up and running, a Linux server with Docker installed and a Trakt account.
First let's create your Trakt API app: https://trakt.tv/oauth/applications/new
Name: $AnythingYouWant Description: $AnythingYouWillRememberInFurture Redirect URI: urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob
Then click Save App. You will need the newly created ClientID and ClientSecret in a moment, so keep that page open.
On your docker host, create a new folder wherever you keep your docker-compose files called 'plextraktsync':
In this folder we create a 'docker-compose.yml' file:
with the contents:
services: scheduler: image: mcuadros/ofelia:latest container_name: scheduler depends_on: - plextraktsync command: daemon --docker volumes: - /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock:ro labels: ofelia.job-run.plextraktsync.schedule: "@every 6h" ofelia.job-run.plextraktsync.container: "plextraktsync" plextraktsync: image: ghcr.io/taxel/plextraktsync:latest container_name: plextraktsync volumes: - ./config:/app/config
With our file saved, let's run and daemonize it:
docker-compose up -d
And with our container running, we can do the first-time setup/authentication:
docker-compose run --rm plextraktsync
Fill in all the info it prompts you for
Plex Password (Remember if you use 2FA you will need to append the code to the end of the password without a space, EG: password123456)
Pick your server from the list available
Sign into Trakt using the link and enter the key provided
Finally enter your Trakt API Client ID and Client Secret
Once all that is entered it will automatically start scrobbling everything on your server for you. Be patient or grab a coffee here.
The last thing to do is to restart your containers to ensure that they are using the correct credentials now that you've logged in.
docker-compose stop docker-compose up -d
And you're done! Happy Scrobbling!
