A documented, idiomatic, and tested wrapper library around Pixiv's App API.
Supports Python versions 3.6+.
$ pip install pixiv-api
To start making requests to the Pixiv API, instantiate a client object.
from pixivapi import Client client = Client()
The client can be authenticated to Pixiv's API in multiple ways. One is by logging in with a username and password:
And another is with a refresh token.
Once authenticated, a refresh token can be saved for future authorizations.
refresh_token = client.refresh_token
After authenticating, the client can begin making requests to all of the Pixiv endpoints. For example, the following code block downloads an image from Pixiv.
from pathlib import Path from pixivapi import Size illustration = client.fetch_illustration(75523989) illustration.download( directory=Path.home() / "my_pixiv_images", size=Size.ORIGINAL, )
And the next code block downloads all illustrations of an artist.
from pathlib import Path from pixivapi import Size artist_id = 2188232 directory = Path.home() / "wlop" response = client.fetch_user_illustrations(artist_id) while True: for illust in response["illustrations"]: illust.download(directory=directory, size=Size.ORIGINAL) if not response["next"]: break response = client.fetch_user_illustrations( artist_id, offset=response["next"], )
