This software is a Go implementation of the original dirsearch tool written by Mauro Soria. DirSearch is the very first tool I write in Go, mostly to play and experiment with Go's concurrency model, channels, and so forth :)

baby-gopher Go Report Card


DirSearch takes an input URL ( -url parameter ) and a wordlist ( -wordlist parameter ), it will then perform concurrent HEAD requests using the lines of the wordlist as paths and files eventually bruteforcing folders and files on a web server.

It supports a custom file extension ( -ext, default to php ) and other optional arguments:

Usage of dirsearch:
        If enabled, will only display responses with 200 status code.
  -consumers int
        Number of concurrent consumers. (default 8)
  -ext string
        File extension. (default "php")
  -maxerrors int
        Maximum number of errors to get before killing the program. (default 20)
  -url string
        Base URL to start enumeration from.
  -wordlist string
        Wordlist file to use for enumeration. (default "dict.txt")
