Installation

Installation instructions*

If you have trouble installing, see extended installation instructions here or join the discord server for help.

Note:

  • For Cloudflare scraping either cfscrape or selenium is used. Cfscrape depends on node-js and selenium utilizes an automated invisible instance of a browser (chrome/firefox). So, if you want to use Cloudflare enabled sites, make sure you have node-js and a webdriver installed.
  • You might have to use pip3 depending on your system
  • To install this project with gui and all its dependencies, add #egg=anime-downloader[gui] to the pip command you are using to install it. Example: pip install -U git+https://github.com/anime-dl/anime-downloader#egg=anime_downloader[gui]
  • To install this project with selescrape (if you are using GUI, ignore this line), do the same as above - but with #egg=anime-downloader[selescrape]

Usage

See docs.

Anime Downloader has six (6) sub-commands, dl, watch, gui, config, ezdl and test.

  • dl: dl can download anime.
  • ezdl: Uses metadata agents to unify providers and also auto select a result if the search argument is close to the anime title.
  • watch: watch can manage your anime watch list. Needs mpv.
  • config: can manage the configuration for anime dl.
  • test: Tests all the providers, not the most reliable command as the results may be faulty.
  • gui: opens a PyQT gui that allows for non commandline downloading and streaming.

To use anime_downloader in your package:

This tool can be used as a library. This means you can import it into your own applications and search for anime and do many other wonderful things.
