Apps, Scripts and Mods
We hope members will contribute applications that use the API (see below) to deliver Inkbunny content in new ways, such as on portable devices, or allow users to do things that the core Inkbunny software doesn't yet support. Other scripts and mods such as using tools like Greasemonkey to modify Inkbunny on your browser are also most welcome. Translation mods or customized changes to the behavior and appearance of pages are just two examples of things that are possible with Greasemonkey.
All contributions are provided by the community for free use. They are not officially endorsed or supported by Inkbunny or its staff, and do not come with any warranties, but are listed here as a free public resource.
Hacks that bypass security measures or break our site are of course not what we are encouraging! Hopefully if you find any of those you'll be nice and tell us.

How to Contribute
If there is anything you think you could contribute to Inkbunny that would be suitable to add to this page, please file a support ticket to let us know.
Things to consider
Please be considerate of our bandwidth and server load when writing your scripts and mods. Many sites discourage community-contributed hacks because they can place an unnecessary extra load on the server. We'd rather encourage coders, and help get your awesome ideas working well for you and for us.
Scripts that load lots of large images rapidly, or run complex searches frequently, may put a big strain on our server. Be efficient, and try to get your scripts providing the most functionality while placing the least possible load. This will give your users the best experience, and ensure we can keep providing the fastest possible data and search speeds to you!
Where possible, your scripts must use the API to interact with Inkbunny. The Inkbunny HTML interface should only be accessed by human users, and scripts that modify its behavior for those users.
We reserve the right to block misbehaving scripts or mods that do not follow these guidelines.
Application Programming Interface (API)
External scripts must interact with Inkbunny via the Application Programming Interface (API). The API gives you a powerful set of tools for interacting directly with the core functionality of Inkbunny.
Code Examples for the API
Sample Upload Form
A sample upload form, using the API Upload interface, can be found here https://inkbunny.net/contrib/api_upload_testform.html
To use this form, a valid Session ID (SID) must be obtained by logging in via API Login and then entered in to the "SID" field.
Libraries for the API
The following are contributed code libraries used for connecting to the Inkbunny API.
C Library by DusXMT
The library is intended to be portable across most major operating systems, relying on GLib, json-glib and either libcurl or libsoup. Examples are available, including a command-line gallery manager, as well as pre-compiled Windows binaries and source tarballs with pre-generated configuration scripts.

Apps using the API
These links are provided at your own risk. Inkbunny does not officially recommend any apps, except FA2IB, which is developed and hosted by an Inkbunny staffer.
You must enable API access in your account settings before most of these will work properly.
Gallery management tools
These help you copy work between sites, or upload to multiple sites at once. Please read our Acceptable Content Policy before selecting uploads, and review ratings and keywords before publication.
You can copy your Fur Affinity submissions to Inkbunny with FA2IB, created by Salmy. You can choose what to import, and it will be uploaded as a series of hidden submissions for your review prior to publication.
