1st Day of Christmas: CeWL

Updated: May 25, 2020

It's December! We will be celebrating 12 days of Christmas Div0 Style. For the next 12 days, we will be making a post each day on a useful tool that can be found in Kali Linux.

On the 1st Day of Christmas, Div0 gave to me ... Custom Word List Generator (CeWL).


CeWL crawls through a target website and returns all the unique words found.

cewl <target-site>

By default, this command will crawl through the target website, stopping at a maximum depth of 2. Also, it will (by default) return words that are at least of length 3.

To view all the CeWL options:

cewl --help

Some other useful options are:

  • -w / --write: Output to a word

  • -d / --depth <int>: Set the depth for CeWL to crawl

  • -m / --min_word_length: The minimum word length

  • -e / --email_file <filename>: Output email addresses to a file
