A local MyAnimeList API
Python MAL API
An unofficial MyAnimeList API for Python 3.
Currently, the API does not feature any kind of rate limiting. Use the API in moderation and rate limit your queries (0.5 seconds is sufficient to my knowledge). This API uses cached webpage data to increase efficiency and save bandwidth. If you want to refresh your data, you must manually refresh the object.
The API is currently incomplete. More features are to come.
If there are any features that you wish to be supported, please raise an issue. Any feedback is also appreciated.
Installation and Usage
To install the library:
pip install -U mal-api
To import the library:
from mal import *
To call the API, you need to create an object.
ID Query Example
from mal import Anime anime = Anime(1) # Cowboy Bebop print(anime.score) # prints 8.82 anime.reload() # reload object print(anime.score) # prints 8.81
Search Query Example
from mal import AnimeSearch search = AnimeSearch("cowboy bebop") # Search for "cowboy bebop" print(search.results.title) # Get title of first result
To configure timeout (default timeout is 5 seconds):
from mal import Anime from mal import config config.TIMEOUT = 1 # Import level config anime = Anime(1, timeout=1) # Object level config
