The aim of Wordsmith is to assist with creating tailored wordlists and usernames that are primarilly based on geolocation.

Start by cloning the repo or downloading the latest release:
$ git clone https://github.com/skahwah/wordsmith.git Cloning into 'wordsmith'... remote: Counting objects: 165, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (62/62), done. remote: Total 165 (delta 55), reused 117 (delta 55), pack-reused 48 Receiving objects: 100% (165/165), 61.99 KiB | 1.05 MiB/s, done. Resolving deltas: 100% (92/92), done.
Then download the latest
data.tar.xz from the Releases page and place it into the wordsmith directory:
$ cd wordsmith $ ruby wordsmith.rb wordsmith v2.1.1 Written by: Sanjiv Kawa (@kawabungah) & Tom Porter (@porterhau5) [!] data/regions.csv and data.tar.xz not detected! Try downloading data.tar.xz: $ wget https://github.com/skahwah/wordsmith/releases/download/v2.1.1/data.tar.xz [!] If data.tar.xz is downloaded, then try changing to the wordsmith directory. $ wget https://github.com/skahwah/wordsmith/releases/download/v2.1.1/data.tar.xz
On next run, Wordsmith will unpack some files from
data.tar.xz to complete the installation. This may take a few seconds:

[*] This script will remove the data/ directory in the current working directory. Enter 'y' to continue: y [*] Just need to unpack some files (Running: tar -xf data.tar.xz) [*] Unpack completed!

$ ruby wordsmith.rb -E wordsmith v2.1.1 Written by: Sanjiv Kawa (@kawabungah) & Tom Porter (@porterhau5) Input names: ------------ Valid inputs for wordsmith (using -I option) are based on nodes located in the "data" directory. The top-level nodes are countries labeled by their 3-letter ISO Country Code: data/gbr : Great Britain data/usa : United States data/deu : Germany etc. Some countries are divided into states, provinces, counties, or municipalities. These child nodes are nested beneath the parent: data/can/on : Ontario, Canada data/usa/nc/raleigh : Raleigh, NC, USA data/gbr/eng/sx/east_sussex : East Sussex, Sussex, England, Great Britain Inputs for wordsmith use these node paths, but with a hyphen (-) delimiter: ruby wordsmith.rb -I gbr [options] ruby wordsmith.rb -I can-on [options] ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa-nc-raleigh [options] If you prefer to not dig through the "data" directory looking for potential inputs or attributes, use -C to show children nodes for a given input: ruby wordsmith.rb -I all -C (show all potential nodes) ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa -C (show children nodes of USA) ruby wordsmith.rb -I gbr-eng -C (show children nodes of England) Alternatively, inputs can also be user-defined through the use of the "regions.csv" file. Wordsmith ships with a few regions already defined, such as: Continents : africa, asia, europe, etc. US regions : southeast, newengland, greatlakes, etc. Unions/Assoc. : eu, asean, nafta, etc. These region aliases can be found by inspecting "regions.csv" or by using the -R option: ruby wordsmith.rb -R Attributes: ----------- Each node may have one or more attributes, such as cities, roads, colleges, etc. Wordsmith will recurse every child node and grab data for the specified attribute. For example, the following syntax starts at the top-level "usa" node and recurses into every sub-directory looking for zip codes: ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa -z Some attributes are widely-used, such as roads (-r), cities (-c), and a handful of others. Use the -h option to see a listing of those attributes. Some attributes may be unique to an area and don't have a dedicated option. These can still be grabbed by using the -b option. The -b option will look for all txt files that are not one of attributes with a dedicated option. For example, if someone generated data for all of the lakes in Minnesota and placed it in "data/usa/mn/lakes.txt", this can be grabbed using: ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa-mn -b Extending wordsmith to incorporate new data is as simple as creating a ".txt" file in the proper data directory. If you have data that you'd think would benefit other users, please connect with us on GitHub. Basic usage: ------------ Show all children nodes and attributes for Great Britain ruby wordsmith.rb -I gbr -C Grab all of the most popular names for USA ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa -N Grab all of the zip codes for California ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa-ca -z Grab all of the sports teams for Charlotte, NC, USA ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa-nc-charlotte -t -m Grab all of the landmarks for California, Montana, and Florida ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa-ca,usa-mt,usa-fl -l Using regions: -------------- Show regions defined in regions.csv ruby wordsmith.rb -R Grab all of the cities for the European Union ruby wordsmith.rb -I eu -c Grab all of the roads for New England (U.S.) ruby wordsmith.rb -I newengland -r Username generation: -------------------- Generate usernames with format FirstinitialLastName: ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa --filn Generate usernames with format LastnameFirstname, truncate usernames to 8 characters: ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa --lnfn --truncate 8 Generate usernames with format Firstname.LastName using the 250 most popular first and last names ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa --fndln --name-depth 250 Output formatting: ------------------ Grab all colleges for California, mangle the output, convert to lowercase ruby wordsmith.rb -I usa-ca -f -m -j Grab all roads for England with a minimum character length of 8 ruby wordsmith.rb -I gbr-eng -r -k 8 Grab everything for Italy, write to file named italy.txt ruby wordsmith.rb -I ita -a -o italy.txt Create a mega wordlist containing all countries with all options, quiet output, write to file named all.txt ruby wordsmith.rb -I all -m -q -o all.txt Web scraping: ------------- Run CeWL against https://www.popped.io, mangle the output ruby wordsmith.rb -d https://www.popped.io -m Run CeWL against list of URLs contained in urls.txt, write to file out.txt ruby wordsmith.rb -i urls.txt -m -o out.txt
Wordsmith should work without any external gems, with the exception of the CeWL integration options (
-i). These features are completely optional and can be ignored if not using them. A Gemfile has been included to simplify gem installation for CeWL. These can be installed using
bundle install. Alternatively, each gem can be installed manually using
gem install <gem>. Wordsmith assumes the CeWL executable (cewl) is on the user's PATH. If cewl is not found, Wordsmith will skip the URLs and continue. Instructions for installing CeWL can be found in Robin Wood's CeWL repository: https://github.com/digininja/CeWL
Wordsmith uses data that's been compressed in data.tar.xz. On first run, Wordsmith will unpack this to a directory called "data/" in the current working directory. This can be circumvented manually using
tar -xf data.tar.xz.
