LinkFinder is a python script written to discover endpoints and their parameters in JavaScript files. This way penetration testers and bug hunters are able to gather new, hidden endpoints on the websites they are testing. Resulting in new testing ground, possibility containing new vulnerabilities. It does so by using jsbeautifier for python in combination with a fairly large regular expression. The regular expressions consists of four small regular expressions. These are responsible for finding:

LinkFinder supports Python 2 & 3 .

$ git clone
$ cd LinkFinder
$ python install

LinkFinder depends on the requests , argparse , jsbeautifier and requests-file python modules. These dependencies can all be installed using pip .

Short Form | Long Form | Description
-i | --input | Input a: URL, file or folder. For folders a wildcard can be used (e.g. '/*.js').
-o | --output | Where to save the file, including file name or output to CLI. Default: output.html
-r | --regex | RegEx for filtering purposes against found endpoints (e.g. ^/api/)
-b | --burp | Toggle to use when inputting a Burp 'Save selected' file containing multiple JS files
-c | --cookies | Add cookies to the request
-h | --help | show the help message and exit


  • Most basic usage to find endpoints in an online JavaScript file and output the results to results.html:

    python -i -o results.html

  • CLI ouput (doesn't use jsbeautifier, which makes it very fast):

    python -i -o cli

  • Burp input (select in target the files you want to save, right click, Save selected items , feed that file as input):

    python -i burpfile -b

  • Enumerating an entire folder for JavaScript files, while looking for endpoints starting with /api/ and finally saving the results to results.html:

    python -i 'Desktop/*.js' -r ^/api/ -o results.html
