Swizzin is a light, modular seedbox solution that can be installed on Debian 9/10/11 or Ubuntu 18.04/20.04. The QuickBox package repo has been ported over for your installing pleasure, including the panel -- if you so choose!
Box has been revamped to reduce and consolidate the amount of commands you need to remember to manage your seedbox. More on this below. In addition to that, additional add-on packages can be installed during installation. No need to wait until the installer finishes! Now with unattended installs!
You can either use the quick installation method (recommended) or you can wile out with installations options using the advanced setup.
Just paste this in your terminal as root and go! This will ask you all the necessary questions to get you set up. Use your arrow keys, tab (to go to next field), space (to select) and enter (to confirm) to navigate the interactive boxes.
You can see what that looks like here:
bash <(wget -qO - git.io/swizzin) && . ~/.bashrc
bash <(curl -sL git.io/swizzin) && . ~/.bashrc
If you did not log into your server with a root login, the method you use to escalate to root will directly influence the success of your installation. Certain distributions and commands may not correctly provide you with a full root login shell when you use them, so please familiarize yourself with the following if they apply to you.
If you are running Ubuntu and use
sudo for the installation you should include the -H argument to ensure that your home directory is modified to /root. The installer will take care of this default for you in the future, and this should be the only time you need to specify sudo -H before running a swizzin command. For example:
sudo -H bash bash <(wget -qO - git.io/swizzin) && . ~/.bashrc
or in a one-liner:
sudo -H su -c 'bash <(wget -qO - git.io/swizzin)'
Since the inclusion of mandatory cracklib checks, we've seen an uptick in users having an issue passing the cracklib check as the installer can't seem to find the
cracklib-check binary despite it being installed. This is because
/sbin and derivative paths have not been properly set due to your chosen method of escalation. If you have troubles passing cracklib, then there's a very good chance you escalated to root with
su instead of
su simply changes you to root user while
su - goes through the entire login process and correctly resets all environmental variables as if you had logged in directly as root. Please always use
su - when interacting with swizzin if this is your chosen method of privilege escalation.

There's a whole bunch of options for the setup.sh to achieve custom/unattended setups, which you can read all about in this article. Here are a couple of examples what you can do with it.
Want to use your local swizzin clone instead of cloning upstream? Use the
git clone https://github.com/<your-fork>/swizzin.git sudo bash swizzin/setup.sh --local
Want to specify the user and their password? And the packages to have installed? Use the
--pass flags, and add packages as arguments!
bash <(curl -sL git.io/swizzin) --unattend qbittorrent nginx panel --user tester --pass test1234
Want something a bit more complex, specify package install variables, don't want a super long command to type, and store the configuration? Use the
--env flag with your custom
env file! (see the unattended.example.env file for an example)
bash <(curl -sL git.io/swizzin) --env /path/to/your/env/file/here.env

Box is a great tool, but it didn't quite do everything I wanted it to. That's why I've upgraded it and added a few commands intended to make your life a bit easier.
box install sickrage couchpotato plex
box remove sonarr radarr
box adduser freeloadingfriend
box deluser exgirlfriend
box chpasswd forgetfulfriend
box upgrade nginx
