Due to all the new hurdles, development is over. Thanks for all the support!
Downloads all mp4s from a kissanime, kisscartoon, or kissasian mastersite! (kissanime.ru/Anime/, kisscartoon.se/Cartoon/, kissasian.com/Drama/)
Currently supports as hosts:
*nix or OSX:
For some odd reason, this requires sudo for lxml
STATIC_DEPS=true sudo -H pip install lxml pip install kissanime_dl
Alternative installation instructions for Linux if facing problems with
# Remove problematic pip install sudo apt-get remove python-pip # Install dependencies sudo apt-get install python-setuptools libxslt1-dev python-dev zlib1g-dev build-essential libgmp10 pypy-dev sudo easy_install pip sudo pip install --upgrade requests sudo pip install js2py sudo pip install pycryptodome sudo easy_install lxml # Install kissanime_dl pip install -U kissanime_dl
Note : If
pip install -U kissanime_dl is run with root privileges,
the module throws errors if update is available. This happens
as the module is unable to write to its install directory to
perform the update. The solution to this is to either not
install module with root privileges or run download as root
once an update is available and normally after that
Windows is a tricky one.
pip install kissanime_dl
If you get an error like:
error: Microsoft Visual C++ 10.0 is required (Unable to find vcvarsall.bat)
There are more steps needed. First, go to
and download the latest lxml wheel.
pip install PATH_LXML
where PATH_LXML is the path to the lxml wheel you downloaded.
Then, try to reinstall.
Type into shell: kissanime-dl URL PATH_TO_DOWNLOAD OPT_ARGS #### MAKE SURE THAT kissanime_dl RUNS IN SEPARATE DIRECTORIES FOR DIFFERENT URLS, OR ELSE UPDATE WILL BE SCREWY #### First argument: the url to the kiss-site master page. It can also be "update" which will download any videos not downloaded into the folder. "update" can only be used if kissanime_dl has been run in that directory and has generated a history file Second argument: the path to download files to Optional arguments: --verbose: Verbose output --simulate: Grabs download urls, but doesn't download --episode=OPT_BEG%OPT_END: Downloads specific episodes. If only OPT_BEG is given WITHOUT "%", only one episode will be downloaded. If only OPT_BEG is given WITH "%", then all files after OPT_BEG will be downloaded. If only OPT_END is given WITH "%", then all files before OPT_END will be downloaded. If OPT_BEG and OPT_END is given, then a range between the two will be downloaded. "%" literal needs to be between the two. OPT_BEG needs to be above OPT_END in terms of the page --max_threads=VAL: Sets the max_threads to search for the download urls. The threads for the actual downloading is not affected. The actual downloading uses one thread per file --quality=QUAL: Sets the quality of the downloaded video. If the quality is not found, the highest one is downloaded --txtlinks Doesn't downloads the videos, but prints the direct video urls into a txt file. --forcehistory Forces a history to be written with the given episodes. This is good for manually setting files you don't want to download when updating —noupdate Prevents kissanime_dl from autoupdating --delay=SEC Adds a delay between get requests to the master page Value in seconds --legacy Runs the script in legacy mode (before update 1.9.0) --autogen Names the episodes numerically rather than the found filename. Good when it outputs clunky names. --help: Prints help
