Jikan - Unofficial PHP API

build build stable Average time to resolve an issue Percentage of issues still open stable Discord Server

Jikan is a PHP API with scrapes and parses requests from

The raison d'être of Jikan is to help developers easily get the data they need for their apps and projects without having to depend on the lackluster official API, unstable APIs, or sidetracking their projects to develop parsers.

The word Jikan literally translates to Time in Japanese (時間). And that's what this API saves you of. ;)

Getting Started

  1. composer require jikan-me/jikan
  2. Documentation

❗️ If you are using dev-master and are not ready for v2 yet, require version ~1.0 until you are.



There's a REST service available, as well as a few wrappers built around it.
