        Upload a chapter with node modules:

    const path = require('path');
    MFA.login('username', 'password123', './bin/.md_cache').then(async () => {

            console.log('Closed existing session.');
        let mangaId = 'f9c33607-9180-4ba6-b85c-e4b5faee7192'; // Official test manga
        let session = await MFA.Manga.createUploadSession(mangaId); 
        console.log('Created new upload session.');
        let chapterDir = './chapter'; // Directory to retrieve page images
        let files = fs.readdirSync(chapterDir)
        await session.uploadPages( => {
            return {
                data: fs.readFileSync(path.join(chapterDir, name)), // Buffer-like data
                name: name // The name of this image
        console.log('Uploaded pages.');
        let chapter = await session.commit({
            chapter: '0', // Change chapter number
            volume: null, // Change volume number
            title: 'New Chapter', // Change chapter name
            translatedLanguage: 'en'
        console.log(`Uploaded new chapter at:${}`);
    // TypeScript Example:
    import MFA from 'mangadex-full-api';
    // You can also import directly like:
    // import { Manga, login } from 'mangadex-full-api';
    MFA.login('username', 'password123').then(async () => {
        const query = 'Ancient Magus Bride';
        const list = await{ title: query, limit: Infinity });
        console.log(list.length, 'results for', query);
        console.log('The first result was written by', (await list[0].authors[0].resolve()).name);


    • Requests will automatically be rate limited to about 5 requests/second.
    • The entire package is typed thanks to JSDoc and the included index.d.ts file, so TypeScript is supported.
    • If you are wondering why the documentation is no longer in the README, it became too difficult to maintain due to JSDoc issues. However, the examples and in-line JSDoc comments should (hopefully) be enough for using the package. Though, here is the old documentation
    • The entire project is written as regular NodeJS with CommonJS imports/exports. As for browser support, see below:


    Mangadex Full API works out of the box with Browserify and does not require additional configuration.

    browserify yourproject.js > bundle.js

    As for Webpack and similar applications, Mangadex Full API is untested and may require additional configuration. However, the only node-specific module used by the program is HTTPS, so if that is substituted by something like https-browserify, there should be no issues. The fs and Path modules are also included in auth.js, but are only required for node environments and can be excluded for browsers.


    npm i mangadex-full-api
