If rpc_interface and rpc_port are set, xeHentai will start a RPC server. The request and response follows the JSON-RPC 2.0 standard.

$ curl localhost:8010/jsonrpc -d '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": 1, "method":"xeH.addTask", "params":[[args],{kwargs}]}'
{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": 1, "result": "36df423e"}

rpc_secret is a secret key to your RPC server. If it's set, client should include this value in the request. For example when rpc_secret is set to hentai:

$ curl localhost:8010/jsonrpc -d '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": 1, "method":"xeH.addTask", "params":["token:hentai",[args],{kwargs}]}'
{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": 1, "result": "36df423e"}

The method filed should start with xeH. and should be a public class method of xeHentai from And change the name from lower_case_with_underscores notation to lowerCamelCase notation. For example, add_task becomes addTask.

Refer to xeHentai class from for parameters list.

If your browser has a Userscript plugin, you can use xeHentaiHelper.user.js to create tasks directly on e-hentai website. Chrome user will need to install Tampermonkey, for firefox Greasemonkey, and ViolentMonkey for Opera and Maxthon users.

Because e-hentai has enabled https, Chrome user will needs to click on the shield icon in the far right of the address bar and click "Load anyway" or "Load unsafe scripts"

Running modes

If xeHentai is ran from command line interface or interative mode, the program will exit after it finishes the tasks in h.json (if exists) and given URL.

If there's no URL given from command line, the program will exit after it finishes the tasks in h.json(if exists).

If program is running on daemon mode (-d is set or daemon is set to True), the program will keep running in background.


xeHentai supports three types of proxies:

  • socks proxy: socks5h:// If you want to resolve DNS on client side, use socks5://
  • http(s) proxy:
  • glype proxy: Please set value of b accordingly. glype is a widely used PHP proxy script. When using, uncheck Encrypt URL, Remove Scripts and check Allow Cookies and open a random URL. The paste the address into configuration.

Multiple proxies can be specified at the same time. The format can be like : ['socks5h://', ''].

By default proxies are used to download images and scan webpages. If you don't want to use proxy on downloading images, set proxy_image to False.

glype users are encouraged to set proxy_image to False

If you only want to use proxy to download image, set proxy_image_only to True in or use the --proxy-image-only CLI option. If both proxy_image and proxy_image_only are set to True, proxy_image will be ignored.

Download range

Download ranges are set in format start_positoin-end_positoin. For example, 5-10 means number download first 5 to 10 images, including 5 and 10. Or use 15 to download number 15 only.

Multiple ranges can be seperated with comma. For example,5-10,15.

If no range is given, xeHentai will download all images.


Image limit

Downloading images will be count towards image limit. This is calculated regarding the popularity of gallery, the server load and/or Hentai@Home bandwidth by e-hentai server.
