nodejs – Wappalyzer
In fact I know there’s already a pretty good Chrome extension called Wappalyzer, but I still wanna make a CLI tool for myself. There’s 2 major reasons why:
- I’ve already installed too many extensions so far.
- I’m a CLI lover, it’s just that simple.
Hello, I’m the author of stacks-cli,and yes just like you said, stacks-cli just another tool based on wappalyzer this npm module and was a side project of mine built in my spare time, but I think the most important core value of stacks-cli is that you can still have another options when choosing tools. I mean you can choose to install browser extension or just installing stacks-cli. For my situation, there’s two reasons, the first one is that I don’t wanna too many redundant extensions in my browser especially Chrome already ate too many RAM of my laptop. The other one is I’m a CLI lover, just that simple.
go – webanalyze
This is a port of Wappalyzer in Go. This tool is designed to be performant and allows to test huge lists of hosts.
Copying my previous reply: Comparing with Wappalyzer and BuiltWith, here’s why we think we have something different (and maybe better):
- WhatRuns detects fonts, Wordpress plugins and themes (tens of thousands of them).
- Ability to follow sites (and know what techs websites started using/ditched).
- Very lightweight compared to our counterparts, and arguably better UI 😉
- More accurate data. BuiltWith can be very inaccurate as you might’ve already noticed. Wappalyzer is fairly accurate, but limited in technologies. WhatRuns is trying to be the best of both worlds.
Whatruns vs Wappalyzer
- Whatruns seems to provide more detailed / thorough information compared to Wappalyzer
- You can follow some websites using Whatruns and get notified when there is a change
- Wappalyzer provides APIs but Whatruns doesn’t seem to have.
- Wappalyzer is available via npm too but not Whatruns
- Wappalyzer is open-source but Whatruns doesn’t seem to be.
- Both of them are available via Chrome and FireFox extensions.
- How to figure out the technology stack of a #web page?
- Whatruns: Identify technologies used on any website
- Stacks-cli: Analyze a website’s stack from the terminal (github.com)
