go-malscraper is just another project scraping/parsing MyAnimeList website to a useful and easy-to-use data by using Go. It is a simple REST API that you can host yourself. It also provides the API library that you can use for your other Go projects.

Well, it is created to help people get MyAnimeList data without relying on MyAnimeList since they limited/disabled/closed their API. It's working as long as the web is up and the UI design stays the same so it can get the page sources and parse them.

go-malscraper is using PuerkitoBio's HTML DOM parser and inspired by Jikan's API library and my PHP Mal-Scraper library.
