Generates all possible permutations of a given charset.

Developed by Alex Pellegrini.

Code and performance optimisation by Daniele Bonadiman.


$ pip install wordlist

There are two ways to use wordlist (command line, python)


Generate all the possible words with a given charset:

$ wordlist [charset]
Generate all the possible words with length within a given interval (e.g. from 2 to 5):

$ wordlist [charset] -m 2 -M 5
Generate following a given pattern:

$ wordlist [charset] @@q@@er@t@y
Save a list to file:

$ wordlist [charset] -o list.txt

$ wordlist [charset] > list.txt

Generate all the possible words with length within a given interval (e.g. from 2 to 5):

import wordlist
generator = wordlist.Generator('charset')
for each in generator.generate(2, 5):
Generate following a given pattern:

import wordlist
generator = wordlist.Generator('charset')
for each in generator.generate_with_pattern('@@q@@er@t@y'):

There are to ways to pass the charset to the script:

A simple list of characters

$ wordlist abcxyz987

A list of ranges following the simple regex (\w-\w)

$ wordlist a-z0-9A-Z


The pattern should be like:


The script will replace every @ symbol with every letter in the charset so as to get every possible permutation. Every other symbol will be a fixed character present in every string. In this example, every generated string will contain a q at the 3rd position an e at the 6th and so on.
