python script to download mangas
A manga download script written in python. It only supports mangadex.org for now. But support for other sites is planned.
Before downloading a new chapter, the script always checks if there is already a chapter with the same name in the download directory. If found the chapter is skipped. So you can run the script on a schedule to only download new chapters without any additional setup.
The default behaiviour is to pack the images to a cbz archvie. If you just want the folder with all the pictures use the flag

Read list of links from file
With the option
--read you can specify a file with links to multiple mangas. They will be parsed from top to bottom one at a time. Every link will be matched for the right api to use.
It is important that you only have one link per line, otherwise they can’t be parsed.
# mangas.txt link1 link2 link3
python3 manga-dlp.py --read mangas.txt --list
This will list all available chapters for link1, link2 and link3.
Set download path
With the option
-p/--path you can specify a path to download the chapters to.
The default path is
Absolute and relative paths are supported.
python3 manga-dlp.py <other options> --path /media/mangas
This will save all mangas/chapters in the path
/media/mangas/<manga title>/<chapter name>
Contribution / Bugs
For suggestions for improvement, just open a pull request.
If you want to add support for a new site, there is an api template file which you can use.
Otherwise you can open a issue with the name of the site which you want support for. (not guaranteed to be implemented)
If you encounter any bugs, also just open a issue with a description of the problem.
Make docker container for easy distribution–> Dockerhub
