  • You can add ongoing manga to the tracked list for a easy way to check for new chapters
  • Config is saved as a .json for readability and easy modification
  • The downloader has a config "mode" that allows the modification of the config file without having to edit the .json manually

Installation

Requirements

  • BeautifulSoup 4
  • cfscrape

IMPORTANT!

cfscrape requires Node.js to be installed

pip

pip install simple-manga-downloader

USAGE

You can specify a different config to be used like this:

SMD -c "path/to/config" mode arguments

Examples:

SMD -c "~/Downloader/config.json" down link_to_manga -l
SMD -c "~/Downloader/config.json" update

Download mode

This mode will download the manga from the link based on your selection, accepts multiple links.

Download all of the chapters:

SMD down link_to_manga [more_links]

Download a range of chapters (both ends are inclusive):

SMD down link_to_manga [more_links] -r 1 20
SMD down link_to_manga [more_links] --range 1 20

Download specific chapters (works if numbers are not in order):

SMD down link_to_manga [more_links] -s 1 10 5 15
SMD down link_to_manga [more_links] --selection 1 10 5 15

Download the newest chapter (based on chapter number not time of upload):

SMD down link_to_manga [more_links] -l
SMD down link_to_manga [more_links] --latest

Exclude chapters from download (works together with -r and -s):

SMD down link_to_manga [more_links] -e 5 10 1
SMD down link_to_manga [more_links] --exclude 5 10 1

Download into a different directory:

SMD down link_to_manga -d "some/path"

Download using a custom name:

SMD down link_to_manga -n Some new name
SMD down link_to_manga --name Some new name

Warning: Using a custom name when downloading multiple manga at once will cause overwriting of the files since all of them will be assigned the same name

Update mode

This mode will go over every manga tracked in the config and download every missing chapter

SMD update

Config mode

This mode allows the modification of the config file.

Adding a manga to the tracked list:

SMD conf -a link_to_manga [more_links]
SMD conf --add-tracked link_to_manga [more_links]

Removing a manga from the tracked list using links:

SMD conf -r link_to_manga [more_links]
SMD conf --remove-tracked link_to_manga [more_links]

Removing a manga from the tracked list by index:

SMD conf -r 5 1 3
SMD conf --remove-tracked 5 1 3

Note: You can't add and remove at the same time, if both -a and -r are present it will only add manga.

Removing a manga from the tracked list by title:

SMD conf -r title "title with spaces"
SMD conf --remove-tracked title "title with spaces"

Removal by index, title and link can be used together (works if multiple point to the same manga):

SMD conf -r link_to_manga 5 "sample title" link_to_manga 2

Clearing the tracked list:

SMD conf -t
SMD conf --clear-tracked

Changing the save directory:

SMD conf -s path/to/directory
SMD conf --save-directory path/to/directory

Toggle the covers setting:

SMD conf -c
SMD conf --covers

Reset the config to the default:

SMD conf -d
SMD conf --default

Listing all of the tracked manga(add -v/--verbose flag to also print the links):

SMD conf -l (-v)
SMD conf --list-tracked (--verbose)

Change the position of a manga:

SMD conf -m
SMD conf --modify-position

Print the config and download paths:

SMD conf -p
SMD conf --paths
