sumy is a Python library for automatic summarization of text documents. It can be used to extract summaries from various input formats such as plaintext, HTML, and URLs. It supports multiple languages and multiple summarization algorithms, including Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA), Luhn, Edmundson, TextRank, and SumBasic.

Photon is a Python library for web scraping. It is designed to be lightweight and fast, and can be used to extract data from websites and web pages. Photon can extract the following data while crawling:

  • URLs (in-scope & out-of-scope)
  • URLs with parameters (
  • Intel (emails, social media accounts, amazon buckets etc.)
  • Files (pdf, png, xml etc.)
  • Secret keys (auth/API keys & hashes)
  • JavaScript files & Endpoints present in them
  • Strings matching custom regex pattern
  • Subdomains & DNS related data

The extracted information is saved in an organized manner or can be exported as json.
