Webtech : Identify Technologies Used on Websites


We’re very proud to release WebTech as open-source software. WebTech is a Python software that can identify web technologies by visiting a given website, parsing a single response file or replaying a request described in a text file.

This way you can have reproducible results and minimize the requests you need to make to a target website.
