You can use this link to test Sherlock directly in your browser: https://elody.com/scenario/plan/16/
NOTE: Python 3.6 or higher is required.
# clone the repo $ git clone https://github.com/sherlock-project/sherlock.git # change the working directory to sherlock $ cd sherlock # install python3 and python3-pip if not exist # install the requirements $ pip3 install -r requirements.txt
For example to search for an user:
To search for more than one user:
All of the accounts found will be stored in an individual text file with the corresponding username (e.g
If you have docker installed you can build an image and run this as a container.
Once the image is built sherlock can be invoked by running the following:
--rm flag removes the container filesystem on completion to prevent cruft build-up. See https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/run/#clean-up—rm
-t flag allocates a pseudo-TTY which allows colored output. See https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/run/#foreground
It is possible to use the following command to access the saved results:
-v "$PWD/results:/opt/sherlock/results" option tells docker create (or use) the folder
results in the present working directory and to mount it at
/opt/sherlock/results on the docker container. The
-o /opt/sherlock/results/text.txtoption tells
sherlock to output the result
Or you can simply use “Docker Hub” to run
Adding New Sites
Please look at the Wiki entry on adding new sites to understand the issues.
NOTE: Sherlock is not accepting adult sites in the standard list.
If you are contributing to Sherlock, then Thank You!
Before creating a pull request with new development, please run the tests to ensure that all is well. It would also be a good idea to run the tests before starting development to distinguish problems between your environment and the Sherlock software.
The following is an example of the command line to run all the tests for Sherlock. This invocation hides the progress text that Sherlock normally outputs, and instead shows the verbose output of the tests.
Note that we do currently have 100% test coverage. Unfortunately, some of the sites that Sherlock checks are not always reliable, so it is not uncommon to get response errors.
