Rate Limiting

As AniAPI is free-to-use, we wanna be sure to avoid too many requests within a limited span of time. Therefore, request from the same origin are limited to 90 per minute.

Inside each HTTP response header from the API, you will receive three additional headers:

  • X-RateLimit-Limit, which indicates the maximum requests number you can do in a minute
  • X-RateLimit-Remaining, to update you on your current remaining number of requests
  • X-RateLimit-Reset, which tells you about how many seconds you have to wait until you can make another accepted request
tip

You have to care about X-RateLimit-Reset only if you do more than 90 requests in a minute

When you go over 90 requests in a minute, you will get a 429 HTTP error as response.
