Booru Browser


  1. My password/API key is not saved after restarting ahoviewer
  2. I get No results found on Danbooru
    • Danbooru only allows normal users to use 2 tags, if you have Maximum post rating set to anything other than Explicit it will count as one tag.
  3. I wish to use a proxy with ahoviewer
    • This can be done by setting the http_proxy and https_proxy environment variables respectively, this works on both GNU/Linux and Windows. See my comment in issue #61 for details.
