Torznab proxy implementation of the Newznab API
Jackett works as a proxy server it translates queries from apps Sonarr, Radarr, SickRage, CouchPotato, Mylar, etc into tracker-site-specific http queries, parses the html response, then sends results back to the requesting software. This allows for getting recent uploads like RSS and performing searches. Jackett is a single repository of maintained indexer scraping & translation logic - removing the burden from other apps.
