A simple command-line utility for parsing URLs.

Project description


A simple command-line utility for parsing URLs, written in Python. Inspired by urlp.

$ urlp --host ""
$ urlp --registered_domain ""
$ urlp --path ""
$ urlp --path -i 0 ""
$ urlp --query ""
$ urlp --query --query_field=s ""

urlp often works together with other unix command-line tools. For example:

  • Find all hosts in urls, sorted by count.
cat urlfile | urlp --host | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr -k1,1
  • Find all url path words (separated by "/"), sorted by count.
cat urlfile | urlp --path | tr / \\n | awk '$1!=""' | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr -k1,1


pip install urlp


$ urlp --help
usage: urlp [-h] [--host] [-p] [-i path_index] [-q] [-k query_field] [-r]
            [urls [urls ...]]
