Apps, Scripts and Mods

From Inkbunny
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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

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.

Javascript wrapper and downloader by nodefox

bunnny-wrapper is a promise-based wrapper of login, logout and search for the Inkbunny API, created by nodefox, and used by their submission downloader library, bunny-dl.

Inkbunny.API (.NET) by Athari

The InkBunny.API library (Alba.InkBunny.Api) by Athari aids accessing Inkbunny through the official API when using .NET.

Inkbunny Python wrapper by Crying Ibex

The Inkbunny Python wrapper by Crying Ibex "exists because I couldn't find a Python wrapper anywhere else". It requires Python ≥ 3.10.2, Requests and platformdirs.

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.

ArtWatcher for Windows and Linux

ArtWatcher is a Java-based application for Windows and Linux by Jack Mcslay which allows you to submit work and view art, journal and comment notifications and browse your followers and members you are following, on Inkbunny, Fur Affinity, Weasyl, SoFurry, deviantART, tumblr and Flickr, with varying levels of support for other sites.


LazyCrossposter is a Java/Selenium-based crossposting tool by Nsyse, supporting Inkbunny, Fur Affinity, SoFurry, Furiffic, DeivantArt, and Weasyl. (No public site is available as of June 2016; some setup is required.)


PostyBirb is a crossposting tool for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux by Lemonynade, supporting Inkbunny, Fur Affinity, DeviantArt, Furry Network, Furiffic, SoFurry, Pixiv, Route50, Tumblr, Twitter, Weasyl and e621.

Download tools

These tools help you download a copy of content hosted on our server to your computer. Inkbunny considers bulk downloads to be a legitimate use of our service when performed from specific locations provisioned for this purpose. (Indexers may find our daily sitemaps useful.)

For best performance, set your content server to Dallas or Quebec (North/South America), Paris or Belgium (elsewhere), and schedule downloads close to 08:00-16:00 GMT/UTC+0 (early morning in the Americas). Use of IPv6 is recommended vs. IPv4 to avoid bandwidth limits.

Furry site favorite scraper for node.js

Furry site favorite scraper by Hoya82 is a simple script that scrapes your favorites from furry sites and stores them in a local FileSystem. Files are stored in `res/ib/{artist name}` grouped by artist. Submission metadata is stored into the MongoDB database. A UI front-end is available consisting of a server and client.

gallery-dl for Windows/Linux/OSX (Python)

gallery-dl is a multi-gallery download tool that supports the download of favorites, pools, posts, search results and user profiles on Inkbunny. Python 3.4+ and Requests are required (and should be included with the usual install methods).

IB Downloader for Windows (.NET 4.x)

IB Downloader by BunnyFoxglove for Windows helps you download various submissions, including your favorites, watched users, a specific user's gallery, a search, or lists of submissions. Includes block options. Requires .NET 4.0 or above (use .NET 4.5 if not on XP). By default, .NET 4.5 uses outdated security protocols. You must modify your registry to force the app to use TLS 1.2 or no connections will work:

  • Run the RegEdit tool and paste the following into the path box at the top, then press enter to load it (on 32-bit Windows, remove \WOW6432Node):
  • Right-click inside the pane on the right and add a New/DWORD value: SystemDefaultTlsVersions
  • Double click the new value and set its Value to 1. Repeat this process with SchUseStrongCrypto
  • Now start the program and it should work (having set download ratings and other options appropriately in the menus).
Inkbunny Downloader/Pool Party for Google Chrome

Inkbunny Downloader/Pool Party by Sammi Husky for Google Chrome offers a button to download a zip of all submissions (including submissions with multiple files) on a gallery-style page, such as Favorites, Gallery, Scraps, and Pools.

Inkbunny Downloader for Firefox

The Inkbunny Downloader by humbird0 is a Firefox extension that assists in the downloading of files from Inkbunny into organized folders.

Unfortunately you may also need a currently-unavailable patch which was released by Xial; and as of September 2017 it is not a WebExtension, so is incompatible with Firefox 57 and above.

Just Another Inkbunny Downloader for Windows/Linux/OSX (PHP)

Just Another Inkbunny Downloader (JAID) by smaxattax downloads/syncs all submissions from a list of users. Requires PHP and Aria2 and should work on any PHP-running platform (e.g. Linux, Windows, OSX). (The tool may not handle username changes ideally.)

Raccoony for Firefox and Chrome

Raccoony is a web extension for Firefox and (possibly, unsupported) Chrome that adds shiny new features (like automatic downloading) to art sites. You probably want the WebExtension version, but it also comes as a pre-Firefox 57 add-on.

Mobile app

Offers a different interface for browsing Inkbunny content on mobile devices.

AndroBunny for Android

AndroBunny by Issarlk is a submission-browsing app. (This application appears to be broken as of 2014; a link is provided in case that changes.)



FoxBot (blog, source) by Syfaro is a Telegram bot for identifying image sources from various sites. It supports Inkbunny for links to the site, but not fuzzy search (as of June 2024).


Inkbunny-RSS (possibly now a user bridge for RSS-Bridge by joeblackclone takes the output from Inkbunny's search API and converts it into a usable RSS file. It is designed to use Redis, Flask, Python and Heroku.


InkBunny PM Desktop Notifications

IB PM Notifications (original journal, alternate versions) by Whippy is a script which can be used in combination with Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey to provide visual and (optional, disabled by default) audio notification of a newly-arrived private message.
