How to get Kanji stroke order diagrams?

I am creating a program that involves mining kanji stroke order diagrams from jisho. How can I get it? Are there any API methods that can do this?

Instead of getting them from Jisho.org, it'd probably be a much better idea to just get them from the original data source. That way, you won't have to mine them in the first place: https://github.com/KanjiVG/kanjivg/releases

The only thing Jisho.org does is combine multiple freely available data sources in one nice interface. It does not hold any substantial original data.

As such, there's also no API for stroke order diagrams.
