Project Status: Active-ish
Studies mean I can't work on this project a lot outside of breaks, however I hope i'll be able to fit in general support and things like bug fixes into my time. New features and such will likely come in short bursts throughout the year (if they do at all).
Does/Will it still work?
jfa-go currently works on Jellyfin 10.8.9, the latest version. I should be able to maintain compatability in the future, unless any big changes occur.
If you want a bit more of a guarantee of support, I've seen these projects mentioned although haven't tried them myself.
- Wizarr focuses on invites, and also includes some Discord & Ombi integration.
- Jellyseerr is a fork of Overseerr, which can manage users and mainly acts as an Ombi alternative.
- Organizr doesn't focus on Jellyfin, but allows putting self-hosted services into "tabs" on a central page, and allows creating users, which lets one control who can access what.
a rewrite of jellyfin-accounts (original naming for both, ik 😂).
- 🧑 Invite based account creation: Send invites to your friends or family, and let them choose their own username and password without relying on you.
- Send invites via a link and/or email
- Granular control over invites: Validity period as well as number of uses can be specified.
- Account profiles: Assign settings profiles to invites so new users have your predefined permissions, homescreen layout, etc. applied to their account on creation.
- Password validation: Ensure users choose a strong password.
- CAPTCHAs can be enabled to avoid bots
- ⌛ User expiry: Specify a validity period, and new users accounts will be disabled/deleted after it. The period can be manually extended too.
- 🔗 Ombi Integration: Automatically creates Ombi accounts for new users using their email address and login details, and your own defined set of permissions.
- Account management: Apply settings to your users individually or en masse, and delete users, optionally sending them an email notification with a reason.
- Telegram/Discord/Matrix Integration: Verify users via a chat bot, and send Password Resets, Announcements, etc. through it.
- "My Account" Page: Allows users to reset their password, manage contact details, view their account expiry date, and send referrals. Custom messages can be added, with markdown.
- Referrals: Users can be given special invites to send to their friends and families.
- 📨 Email storage: Add your existing users email addresses through the UI, and jfa-go will ask new users for them on account creation.
- Email addresses can optionally be used instead of usernames
- 🔑 Password resets: When users forget their passwords and request a change in Jellyfin, jfa-go reads the PIN from the created file and sends it straight to them via email/telegram.
- Can also be done through the "My Account" page if enabled.
- Admin Notifications: Get notified when someone creates an account, or an invite expires.
- 📣 Announcements: Bulk message your users with announcements about your server.
- Authentication via Jellyfin: Instead of using separate credentials for jfa-go and Jellyfin, jfa-go can use it as the authentication provider.
- Enables the usage of jfa-go by multiple people
- 🌓 Customizations
- Customize emails with variables and markdown
- Specify contact and help messages to appear in emails and pages
- Light and dark themes available
TrayIcon builds include a tray icon to start/stop/restart, and an option to automatically start when you log-in to your computer. For Linux users, these builds depend on the
libappindicator package for Debian/Ubuntu, Fedora, and Alpine respectively.

Usage of jfa-go: start start jfa-go as a daemon and run in the background. stop stop a daemonized instance of jfa-go. systemd generate a systemd .service file. -config, -c string alternate path to config file.

jfa-go systemd to create a systemd
.service file in your current directory, which you can copy into
~/.config/systemd/user or somewhere else.
