MangaReaper is an automated tool to download and manage mangas for Linux, created around Comix viewer (and its various forks).

MangaReaper let the user subscribe to various mangas in a completely automated way, and periodically download the new chapters available. It supports many download sites, such as mangareader, mangafox, or eatmanga.

MangaReaper organizes the downloaded chapters in various libraries of Comix, and let the user manage them. It includes many features such as automatically deleting mangas after a certain number of days or chapters, or viewing the list of the unread chapters.

This tool aims to be as flexible and configurable as possible. Even though it's a bash script, all the interactions are done graphically, thanks to Zenity's fork, Yad.

*** Update ***: A new portable Perl / Gtk3 version is currently under development. The bash version ow serves just as a demo.
