Binary Files

If you would like to not install the program and instead use a single binary file, you can download them from our Github releases page.


The program offers a simple wget-like CLI. To download a series, simply enter:

$ manga-dl <URL>

This will create a new directory with the series name in the current working directory and subsequently download all currently available pages of the series

The CLI does offer some configuration:

  • --destination, -d (type: string)
    • Specifies the directory in which the series will be stored
    • Defaults to the current working directory + the series name
  • --threads, -t (type: integer)
    • Specifies how many threads the program may use. Using more threads may speed up the parsing
    • Defaults to the amount of logical processors the system has
  • --verbose, -v
    • If set, the program will print it's progress to the console
  • --update
    • If set, the program will only check for content that have not been downloaded yet
  • --repair
    • If set, the program will check each previously downloaded file for errors
    • If errors are found, the file in question is re-downloaded
  • --zip-volumes
    • Zips the series by volume after the download is completed
  • --zip-chapters
    • Zips the series by chapter after the download is completed
