Jikan (時間) is an open-source PHP & REST API for the “most active online anime + manga community and database” — MyAnimeList.net. It parses the website to satisfy the need for an API.
Try out the Anime Search API
You can focus on making your app while we keep the requests rolling.
TRITON is a media pipeline that aims to go one step further than services like Jellyfin and Plex provide. Media is fetched from a magnitude of supported protocols (HTTP, S3-compatible, Usenet, etc), converted into multiple different quality levels, and then uploaded to a S3-compatible storage provider in an organized fashion. This enables cheap storage and ensures that buffering is never a problem. On top of all of this, a frontend allows users to watch your media on the go.
With nearly limitless quota on requests, you have the freedom to create without the need of writing your own parsers. Save yourself some Jikan.
Jikan caters to over 30 million requests weekly. And this includes the use of the most popular Anime/Manga apps around!
By the community, for the community.
Thanks to avid contributors, the Jikan REST API has a multitude of wrappers available so you can easily use it with the language of your choice.
Help contribute by writing or maintaining a wrapper in your favorite programming language.
