Buy Me A Coffee

A CLI for downloading Anime from making use of their RSS Feed and python-libtorrent

Warning: Only tested on Linux. Windows or MacOS support is not guaranteed, feel free to open issues about it, but I don't have any non-Linux machines to test any problems related to other OSes.






  • python3 -m pip install nyaacli --user

    • Note: python-libtorrent will still need to be downloaded separately as shown below
  • This Program depends on libtorrent together with its Python API, which can be installed using apt on debian-based linux distros with sudo apt install python3-libtorrent (libtorrent-rasterbar with pacman for Arch-based distros) or can be built from source here: python-libtorrent


  • Help: nyaa --help or nyaa-cli --help

  Search for Anime on and downloads it

      nyaa "Anime Name" <Episode Number (Optional)> -o <Output Folder (Default = "~/Videos/Anime")>
