example

Built With

Getting Started

To get a local copy up and running follow these simple steps.

Prerequisites

  • golang (if you want to build from source)
  • linux, windows or mac

Installation

Linux

# clone and go into the repository
git clone https://github.com/Gyro7/mangodl.git
cd mangodl

# run the installation script
chmod +x install.sh
./install.sh

Linux (build from source)

# clone and go into the repository
git clone https://github.com/Gyro7/mangodl.git
cd mangodl

# NOW JUST OPEN THE INSTALL.SH SCRIPT AND UNCOMMENT THE COMMENTED LINES
# then run the installation script
chmod +x install.sh
./install.sh

Arch Linux and derivatives

An AUR package is now available.

Just yay -S mangodl or, if you use paru paru -S mangodl

Windows

If you just want to use it without installing it, just run mangodl.exe everytime and skip these steps below

Open start menu,
1. Type Edit environment variables
2. Open the option Edit the system environment variables
3. Click Environment variables... button
4. There you see two boxes, in System Variables box find path variable
5. Click Edit
6. a window pops up, click New
7. Type the Directory path of mangodl.exe (Directory means exclude the file name from path)
8. Click Ok on all open windows and restart the command prompt.

macOS

If you haven't already given the terminal access to the disk, then do it, for further help see THIS

Anyway, this is not tested, so if you have macOS and want to test/fix just create a pull request or an issue.

# clone and go into the repository
git clone https://github.com/Gyro7/mangodl.git
cd mangodl
# remove the linux executable, rename the macos one to mangodl and make it executable
rm mangodl
mv mangodl-darwin mangodl
chmod +x mangodl
# move the executable to the /usr/local/bin/ path, be aware of not deleting the directory!
sudo mv mangodl /usr/local/bin/mangodl

Usage

Usage: mangodl [FLAGS]...

Arguments and flags:

-h, --help			shows this message and exit
Needed (one of them):
-D, --download			downloads the manga specified after -D (e.g. mangodl -D jojo will search for 5 manga with that name and ask you which one to download)
-S, --search			searches for the manga specified after this flag (e.g. mangodl -S "kanojo x kanojo" will search and display the manga found with that name)
-Q, --query			show downloaded manga
-Dir, --directory		sets the default directory to download manga (e.g. mangodl -Dir "$HOME/Documents/manga/"), otherwise the default one would be "~/Downloaded Manga/" and the Desktop for Windows

Optional:
For -D:
-c, --chapter			used to specify the chapter to download (if omitted it will download them all)
-cr, --chapterrange		used to specify a range of chapters to download (e.g. mangodl -S -M "Martial Peak" -cr 1 99 will download chapters from 1 to 99 (included)

For -S:
-n, --noplot		do not print the plot of searched manga	

Reading

To read the downloaded pages, I really suggest this free piece of software, which is lightweight and flexible:

OpenComic

OpenComic Demonstration

You can simply add the folder "Downloaded Manga" to OpenComic, which is the most recommended thing to do.
And then it'll open all your manga, divided into chapters.

Roadmap

See the open issues for a list of proposed features (and known issues).

  • [SUGGESTION] Include a tarball (tar.gz file) in the release version

    [SUGGESTION] Include a tarball (tar.gz file) in the release version

    After searching on how to make formulaes it's apparently needed to have a tarball file inside the release so brew can build from source (so no pre-compiled executables!) it must follow a naming convention like this:

    mangodl-1.3.tag.gz
    

    i request that @Gyro7 adds this

  • Leading 0 in names

    Leading 0 in names

    Would it be possible to have leading 0s in the page filenames? that way they would get sorted properly when creating archives. This would also come in handy for folder names of long running titles with over 100 chapters.

  • Downloading bug; directory created, no command output or files downladed.

    Downloading bug; directory created, no command output or files downladed.

    On some manga (yuri hime collections, "my slave is way too cheerful," and maybe others I'm forgetting) after making the decision on what to download, the command with end with an exit code of 0. No verbose errors are printed, and no download info shown. I'm running on EndeavourOS (arch with helpful bash scripts), latest zen kernel, and installed via yay and the good ol AUR.

    Besides that, also wanted to say that the tool has been very useful. Nowhere near as over complicated, outdated, and outright broken so many other things i've tried have been.

  • Flat Directory

    Flat Directory

    Hey, Since I output to .cbz, having each individual cbz file in a folder is quite annoying and i've had to run a command on each one to get every chapter in one folder. Could you add a flag that allows the user to place everything in the one folder without subfolders?

  • Unable to download some manga past the 5th option listed with -S

    Unable to download some manga past the 5th option listed with -S

    Some manga, when searched for, show more than 5 options, but when you use -D, only 5 options are listed. However, when trying to narrow down the download by using the exact listed name, it is sometimes still not listed, as it is still past option 5 in the download list.

    An example of this, is trying to download Ichido dake demo, Koukai Shitemasu. This brings up the correct manga at number 8, under its English name: Even If It Was Just Once, I Regret It However, if you do a search with Even If It Was Just Once, I Regret It, it shows up at number 10. This means you can not download it, as -D only lists the first 5 options to download.

  • [FEATURE] Option to get the manga as .cbr

    [FEATURE] Option to get the manga as .cbr

    I basically do my reading through YacReader, since all comics are in .cbr format. It would be grate to have an option that outputs the manga as .cbr format, just like it exist as .pdf. An easy work around can be done by hand but i think it would make for a great feature.

    Thank you and best regards.

  • [Feature] Add the option to set a default output format

    [Feature] Add the option to set a default output format

    I read all my mangas on cbz format, so I will always have to use -o cbz. While is not too difficult, sometimes I write the chapter before and the output format is not applied.

    I saw that using the -Dir flag changes the default directory. Could something similar be made for the output format?

    https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/8656/usr-bin-vs-usr-local-bin-on-linux

    When I tried using install.sh on MacOS 12.3.1 it kept denying me access:

    • to /usr/bin/ directly
      • I would have to disable MacOS's SIP for that to work

    Instead: used a workaround

    • to install to /usr/local/bin/
      • which also works fine on linux
