LLs GagBook

Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (4 votes)

This app is no longer working as 9GAG changed its Website and has no public API available.

Please use the updated version by Alex from here: https://openrepos.net/content/alex/gagbook


GagBook is an unofficial mobile app for 9GAG website.

This is a fork of the original GagBook by dicksonleong mainly focussing on updateting the UI for SailfishOS and adding some features as GagBook wasn't updated in years.

This will overwrite the original GagBook version if installed.


  • Simple, smooth and native UI
  • View posts in different sections, eg. hot, trending, fresh, etc
  • Full screen view of image with pinch-to-zoom
  • Login (with email only) and voting [NOT TESTED due to lack of account]
  • View comments for each post
  • Save image
  • Video support (support for MP4 Files on 9GAG)

Hi, could You please use this http://9gag-rss.com/ as new source of images and videos since official api is off ? Kindly please, do so. I looked through gagbook code but it would be too much effort for my level of understanding code. Perhaps it.just need to replace url.for get requests but I guess You will know better. Thank You in advance kind Sir, You saved Gagbook before, but sadly it needs to be saved once more, hopefully it can be done. Good Luck in new year !

If you want to use an RSS Feed for 9gag you can then use an RSS Reader on SailfishOS to view the RSS Feed. I will not implement an RSS Reader in GagBook.

Hey @llelectronics,

could you please also fix the 9gag comments? :) The comments are not shown anymore after updating the app to https.

Turns out 9GAG turned off their API support for comments we used. The only thing I can do is showing the mobile 9gag site with the top3 comments.

Thanks @llelectronics . :)

I just found this: https://github.com/and3rson/nineapi

It would be awesome if you have some time to port/implement it into GagBook and also maybe fix the Account (show NSFW content) and voting system.

I know about this but the code is outdated already and most of the app calls there don't work anymore

I will take a look at it. Was wondering anyway why they always shown empty.
