What is Hachidori?


Hachidori (はちどり) is a lightweight, fast and accurate open source Kitsu scrobbler for macOS. It allows users to automatically update the user’s library based on what they are watching through any of the popular media players on macOS (Mplayer, IINA, Mpv, VLC, Quicktime, Plex Home Theater, Plex Media Player, Kodi and more), or streaming sites (Crunchyroll, AnimeNewsNetwork, Viz, AnimeLab, Funimation, Wakanim and Netflix) and Plex Media Server from Safari, Webkit, Chrome, Roccat and Omniweb. It can also track rewatch status and how many times for series you already watched.

Hachidori also has advanced features such as customizable global hotkeys, setting episode offsets in Anime Exceptions and ignore rules (for directories and filenames (with Regular Expressions support)).
