Mangacast File

Mangacast Producer

Use the Mangacast Producer bundled with eManga to create your mangacast instead of manually editing xml files.

Linking to Your Mangacast

Direct Subscribe Link: The following link automatically subscribes the user to the mangacast in eManga. Note that this method fails for Windows users who do not have eManga installed, so it should be clearly noted that the link is intended for subscription with eManga.


Note that this is a direct call to the user's eManga client software.

eManga RSS Tags

eManga uses RSS 2.0 plus some additional tags. Note that the additional tags are not required, but are recommended where needed in order to provide the best possible user experience.

Defining Tags with the eManga Podcasting Namespace.

When using the eManga tags, you must add a namespace declaration as the second line in your feed xml, like this:

<rss xmlns:emanga="" version="2.0">

The namespace declaration points to a document that defines the eManga tags. Without the declaration, the tags are meaningless.

Note that the namespace definition is case sensitive, and the previous location of the namespace had capital letters in it. The old namespace definition is still supported, but the new (all lowercase) definition is preferred.

Text Encoding

Please use UTF-8 encoding for your feed. Other encodings are not guaranteed to work in eManga.

All values should be plain text (no markup or HTML). Values are limited to 255 characters, except for <emanga:summary> which can be up to 4000 characters. Whitespace in values is significant, i.e. it will show in eManga, so don’t add leading or trailing whitespace to your values. CDATA sections are strongly discouraged.
