Manga scraper

Project description


Search and download specific volumes of a manga series from MangaReader and store as a PDF.


To install:

pip install --user MangaReaderScraper

For development:

git clone
pip install -r MangaReaderScraper/requirements.txt
export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/path/to/MangaReaderScraper/


To use the GUI instead of the CLI, simply don't parse any args:

NOTE: due to a bug in PyQt5, this can only be used if you installed locally by cloning directly from the repo.

python scraper



--search Search for a given query and select to download one of the mangas from the parsed searched results.
--manga Manga series name to download.
--volumes Manga series volume number to download.
--cbz Store in CBZ format instead of PDF.
