A cross-platform Swift framework to interact with the MangaDex website
.package(url: "https://github.com/JRomainG/MangaDexLib.git", from: "v0.5-beta")


MangaDexLib is a cross-platform Swift framework to interact with the MangaDex website. Its goal is to offer a robust abstract interface to access the API's core features.

Note: The official MangaDex API is currently in a read-only state and some features might not be available yet.


MangaDexLib requires Swift 5 or newer.


MangaDexLib is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'MangaDexLib'


MangaDexLib is available Carthage. To install it, simply add the following line to your Cartfile:

github "JRomainG/MangaDexLib"

Swift Package Manager

MangaDexLib is available through Swift Package Manager. To install it, simply add the dependency to your Package.Swift file:

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/JRomainG/MangaDexLib.git", .branch("master")),
targets: [
    .target(name: "YourTarget", dependencies: ["MangaDexLib"]),


If you do not wish to use a package manager, you can also simply copy the Sources directory to your project.

Example usage

Here are a few examples of how to use the API:

To get a list of mangas:

import MangaDexLib
let api = MDApi()
api.getMangaList { (res, error) in

To get a manga's chapters:

let mangaId = "32d76d19-8a05-4db0-9fc2-e0b0648fe9d0" // Solo leveling
api.getMangaFeed(mangaId: mangaId) { (res, error) in

To get a chapter's pages:

let chapterId = "eaaac5cc-07aa-412b-be50-9f342ceedffb" // Eight volume 4 chapter 37.6 (en)
api.viewChapter(chapterId: chapterId) { (res, error) in
    let chapter = res?.object?.data
    api.getChapterServer(chapterId: chapterId) { (node, error) in
        print(chapter?.getPageUrls(node: node!, lowRes: false))

To login to a user's account:

let credentials = MDAuthCredentials(username: "username", password: "password")
api.login(credentials: credentials) { (error) in

Release Notes

4 weeks ago

First beta release for version 5 of the MangaDex API. All features in the official documentation should be implemented.

This version introduces many breaking changes and can be seen as a complete rewrite for the new MangaDex API. The SwiftSoup dependency has been dropped as there is no need to parse HTML pages anymore. Overall, this should make MangaDexLib faster and more reliable.

Note: The official MangaDex API is still in beta and in a read-only state, so some features might not be available yet.
