Jackett works as a proxy server: it translates queries from apps (Sonarr, Radarr, etc.) into tracker-site-specific http queries, parses the html or json response, and 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.
Specifically, Jackett, combined with Stremio-Jackett, is one half of a popular integration enabling streaming of content from Debrid providers via Stremio.
