Due to many changes in the new API this project has been discontinued.

e621 API Build Status

Simple wrapper for e621.net API written in PHP, uses Guzzle under the hood.

This class is currently in development, most of the stuff was not tested and not every method in entities is implemented yet.

Table of Contents



Install this package through Composer - composer require jacklul/e621-api.


  • Initialize the E621 object:
    require 'vendor/autoload.php';
    use jacklul\E621API\E621;
    $api = new E621();
  • You should specify custom user agent to identify your project:
    $options = [
        'headers'  => [
            'User-Agent' => 'My project',
    $api = new E621($options);
  • Perform request with parameters:
    $request = $api->postIndex(['tags' => 'cat order:score', 'limit' => 25]);
  • This will return Response object, to get the actual data we make sure the request was successful first before getting result data:
    if ($request->isSuccessful()) {
        $results = $request->getResult();    // Result data (usually array of objects, empty array means no results)
    } else {
        echo $request->getReason();     // Failure reason
        echo $request->getMessage();    // Failure descriptive message (when available)
        echo $request->getRawResult();  // Raw response (when available)
  • You can easily iterate over the result using foreach() and then print every image's URL:
    /** @var \jacklul\E621API\Entity\Post $post */
    foreach ($results as $post) {
        echo $post->getFileUrl() . PHP_EOL;

You can pass Guzzle's options applied only for a single request as a second parameter:

    $request = $api->postIndex(['tags' => 'cat order:score'], ['timeout' => 10]);

By default library will throw exceptions on connection failures or errors, you can disable this by using:

    $api->throwExceptions(false);   // Not recommended

When disabled - all error messages will be available via $request->getError() method and $request->getReason() will contain a message that you can display to the user.

Logging in

Some actions require logging in to execute, to authenticate you can either pass login and password_hash (API key) parameters with each request or set it globally:

    $api = new E621();
    $api->login('login', 'api_key');  // Set authentication data
    $request = $api->dmailInbox();
    $api->logout();                   // Remove authentication data


You can set progress handler through Guzzle's options while initializing the object, per single request or after:

    $api->setProgressHandler([$this, 'progress']);
    $api->setProgressHandler(null);     // Unset the handler

Similar with a debug logging function:

    $api->setDebugLogHandler([$this, 'logger']);
    $api->setDebugLogHandler(null);     // Unset the handler

This will write the output to php://temp until the request finishes and then it will flush it to your handler, if you need to use different approach then set your handler through Guzzle's options.
