Project description

“De gustibus non est disputandum.”

Python Hentai API Wrapper

This python package implements a wrapper class around nhentai's RESTful API. Please be aware that this is not an official API, technical questions about nhentai.net should be redirected to support@nhentai.com. Further note that the content of this module is generally considered NSFW. Finally, I would like to comment at this point that you should under no circumstances use this module to make an unreasonable amount of requests in a short period of time.

Basic Usage

Hentai makes it very easy to browse through nhentai.net. It implements a flat namespace for easy access of all their endpoints:

from hentai import Hentai, Format

doujin = Hentai(177013)

# True
Hentai.exists(doujin.id)

# METAMORPHOSIS
print(doujin.title(Format.Pretty))

# [Tag(id=3981, type='artist', name='shindol', url='https://nhentai.net/artist/shindol/', count=279)]
print(doujin.artist)

# ['dark skin', 'group', ... ]
print([tag.name for tag in doujin.tag])

# 2016-10-18 12:28:49+00:00
print(doujin.upload_date)

# ['https://i.nhentai.net/galleries/987560/1.jpg', ... ]
print(doujin.image_urls)

# get the source
doujin.download(progressbar=True)

Apart from that, hentai.Utils also provides a handful of miscellaneous helper methods:

from hentai import Utils, Sort, Option, Tag
from pathlib import Path

print(Utils.get_random_id())

# recommend me something good!
print(Utils.get_random_hentai())

# advanced search with queries
for doujin in Utils.search_by_query('tag:loli', sort=Sort.PopularWeek):
    print(doujin.title(Format.Pretty))

# print all character names from all doujins
for character in Tag.list(Option.Character):
    print(character.name)

# store custom meta data as JSON file to disk
popular_loli = Utils.search_by_query('tag:loli', sort=Sort.PopularWeek)
custom = [Option.ID, Option.Title, Option.Epos]
Utils.export(popular_loli, filename=Path('popular_loli.json'), options=custom)

See also https://nhentai.net/info/ for more information on search queries.

Command Line Interface

Starting with version 3.2.4, this module also provides a rudimentary CLI for downloading doujins within the terminal:

# get help
hentai -h

# download this doujin to the CWD
hentai 177013

# check the module version
hentai -version
