A local MyAnimeList API

Project description

Python MAL API

Here is an unofficial MyAnimeList API in response to the MyAnimeList's API shutdown.

Hold on, this API is in early stages and is unstable.

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 create a new object (a refresh option will most likely come in the future; no plans for dynamically updating info).

Notice

I am in the process of rewriting the whole API, some functionality is currently missing. 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.

Usage

To install the required packages: pip install requirements.txt

To import the library: from mal import *

API Documentation

To call the API, you need to create an object.

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
