WordPress information gathering tool

Project description

What’s this

You much probably have landed off here while seeking some python scripts online to gather some information from WordPress sites without too much effort. I regret to say that this library, while I actively seek to make it usable by other applications, it may not meet your expectations. On one side, it’s being rolled down employing asyncio, low-level parsers such as lxml and of course python>=3.7. (We only python3 in this house). Either way, not a too much exotic stack but modern enough to require you to prepare more complex environments in order to run it. Of course I know about other tools that ship with all the ecosystem needed to extract this information, such as scrapy, but I wanted to get my hands dirty with new tech… Besides, who does not want to reinvent the wheel from time to time?

On the other hand, it is still under heavy development and there is not much info you can scrape using this tool. Hence, you are very welcome to contribute! :)

[STRIKEOUT:I’d rather have a deterministic dependency manager. That’s why this projects employs poetry]. Ejem well, I’m pretty tired of running into weird issues on different environments due to these exotic dep managers, should I will stick back to pip for now.

Install with

git clone
cd wpoke/
python install

Install from pypi

pip install -U pip  # Make sure pip is updated
pip install wpoke

Run as command line tool

pip install wpoke

Run on docker

docker run sonirico/wpoke:latest


As of now, configurable parameters are:

  • max number of redirects: max-redirects

  • global timeout: timeout

  • user-agent: user-agent


wpoke-cli --max-redirects=5 --timeout 5 --user-agent "Mozilla/5.0"

Roll down your own checks (aka fingers)

import requests
from wpoke.hand import Hand

hand = Hand()

def custom_version_extractor(url):
    response = requests.get(url)
    data = my_response_parser(response.text())
    return data

if __name__ == "__main__":
