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

pip install wsinfo

>>> import wsinfo
>>> w = wsinfo.Info("https://github.com")
>>> w.ip
