AudioBookshelf is a self-hosted audiobook server for managing and playing your audiobooks.

Currently in Beta - Free & open source Android/iOS app is in development

Folder Structures Supported:


Title can start with the publish year like so:
/1989 - Awesome Book/...

There is still a lot to do:

  • Adding new audiobooks require pressing Scan button again (on settings page)
  • Matching is still manual - should auto-match when exact title and author with cover image is found
  • Support different views to see more details of each audiobook
  • Add ability to add/manage additional accounts with varying access levels
  • Then comes the mobile app..


Built to run in Docker for now (also on Unraid server Community Apps)

docker run -d -p 1337:80 -v /audiobooks:/audiobooks -v /config:/config -v /metadata:/metadata --name audiobookshelf --rm advplyr/audiobookshelf
