Proper Noob question - pls help

Hi there, long story short, I am trying to use Docker to run Sonarr/Radarr/Jackett on my Mac.

Pls note: I have zero experience of prgramming, architecture, visualisation. containers… total and utter noob

I have Docker Desktop all set up and have pulled the Sonarr and Jackett images into Docker (could be wrong terminology!). Do I now ned to download and run Sonarr and Mono on my Mac, and then Docker ‘pulls on their functionality’, or can I configure Sonarr from within Docker, ie not have to have the app running locally on my Mac?

I also want Transmission to act as the download client, with the resulting media files being placed on an older Mac (that can’t be upgraded to a newer OS to run all this on the one machine) that I have on my home network.

Is there a guide I can follow for a total and utter noob?

Many thanks

Same question - any luck?

I am in the same boat. Managed to hobble together pieces of the system yet not w/o a great deal of trail 7 error, and the help of some amazing friends and good netizens.

Next phases: Getting Transmission macOS client connected and working w/Sonarr, then VPN where I can still remote in.

Seems like most in this space are using Pi, Windows etc… not that many on Mac (or not that many inclined to post are on Macs.)
