Documentation

libgen-python-api

A Python library that provides an api to search and get links from Books,Magazines,Comics,... from Library Genesis.

Requirements:

  • Python 2/3
  • Grab library and it's dependencies.

Installation:

Two options:

  • Clone this repo and use "python setup.py install"
  • Use pip, "pip install libgenapi"

Example of usage:

import libgenapi

lg=libgenapi.Libgenapi(["http://[INSERT MIRROR DOMAIN 1 HERE].com","http://[INSERT MIRROR DOMAIN 2 HERE].com]) # You can add as many mirrors as you want.

lg.search("python")

Then the results are something like this (but... without the crazyness :P real links and titles...):

    [
        {
            "author":"Dat Guy",
            "series":"Library of New Guy Studies volume 420",
            "title":"Dat perfect 5/7 Title !",
            "isbn":[123456],
            "edition":"[1 ed.]",
            "publisher":"WHo knows? Me no!",
            "year":"420",
            "pages":"420",
            "language":"chan",
            "size":"420 kb",
            "extension":"vap",
            "mirrors":["http://IDontWantADMCA.takedown/view.php?id=1337HAYKER",
                     "http://IDontWantADMCA.takedown/ads.php?md5=MD5HERE",
                     "http://IDontWantADMCA.takedown/md5/MD5HERE",
                     "http://IDontWantADMCA.takedown/md5/MD5HERE"
                     ]
        }
    ]

You can also choose the column to search like this:

l.search("93438924","identifier") # Identifier is ISBN
l.search("Michael","author")
...

Other examples:

You can make a quick command to search using an alias, for example in zsh you can add this to your .zshrc:

alias lgen="python -c 'import sys;import libgenapi;l=libgenapi.Libgenapi("http://[INSERTDOMAINHERE]/");print(l.search(sys.argv[1]))'"
