Project description

The wsinfo library

Travis CI test status Code health Version Monthly downloads Documentation

wsinfo (short for website information) is a Python package for getting some useful information about some website, without the need to write some complicated hackish Python code.


The package is compatible with both Python 2 and 3, so everything you need is a recent Python installation.


The wsinfo library is available on PyPI, so you can install it using pip:

pip install wsinfo


The usage of the wsinfo library is as easy as:

>>> import wsinfo
>>> w = wsinfo.Info("")
>>> w.ip
>>> w.http_status_code
>>> w.title
'How people build software · GitHub'
>>> w.content
'<!DOCTYPE html>\n<html>\n[...]\n</html>'
