Search tool to find email addresses by abusing search

Project description

Frisbee is a small utility to collect email addresses from search engines and other free-form text sources. Frisbee makes it simple to find email addresses posted on the web by taking user-fed input and translating it into an automated search query. Users can extend frisbee by adding modules for new search engines or other obscure data sources.

For detailed explanations of the library, please see the wiki.

Quick Start

Install the library:

pip install frisbee or python install

Run a search

frisbee search -e bing -d -l 50 --greedy --save

Sample Code

This sample code shows some of the range of functionality within the module:

from frisbee import Frisbee

# Create an instance
frisbee = Frisbee(save=True)

# Describe your job
jobs = [{'engine': 'bing', 'modifier': '',
         'domain': '', 'limit': 50}]

# Execute the jobs

# Get the results
results = frisbee.get_results()

Example Output

Below is an example job result:

    "engine": "bing",
    "modifier": "",
    "domain": "",
    "limit": 50,
    "results": {
        "start_time": "2018-12-13 16:54:15",
        "end_time": "2018-12-13 16:54:19",
        "emails": [
        "duration": "4",
        "processed": 44
    "project": "zealous_kirch"
