LaunchAgent on MacOS

As-is, the LaunchAgent expects bazarr to be cloned or installed at /Applications/bazarr. If this is counter to other documentation I recommend amending the file contents.

The LaunchAgent should be named com.github.morpheus65535.bazarr.plist - again, if you'd like something else, update the Label in the file itself as well.

The file is installed to /Library/LaunchAgents and the service will start when the user logs into the system. After installation, the service can be started immediately by running launchctl load /Library/LaunchAgents/com.github.morpheus65535.bazarr.plist. The service can be stopped by running the same command replacing load with unload.

Make sure that owner and permissions are properly defined on the plist:

sudo chown root:wheel /Library/LaunchAgents/com.github.morpheus65535.bazarr.plist
sudo chmod -R 0644 /Library/LaunchAgents/com.github.morpheus65535.bazarr.plist

Logs are written to /usr/local/var/log/bazarr.log.

Here's the file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

  </dict>
</plist>
