It has been 6 years and dirsearch has now become the fuzzing tool that has the highest stars on Github:, the second is FFUF. But of course, we can't compare this tool with FFUF. Because FFUF is a fuzzer, which can brute-force anything in a single HTTP request. And dirsearch, it has been designed for directories brute-forcing only. It has a lot of the best techniques for directories brute-forcing, like 2-level auto-calibration, extensions, exclude extensions, reporting, recursion (it has a really good recursion work), brute-force a CIDR (IP range), sub-directories brute-forcing, User-Agent randomization, proxy randomization, suffixes and prefixes, wordlist formats, ... It also has an impressive performance and nice output! Many hackers now are using dirsearch, so I think you should add dirsearch into your tool package so users can install easier.

Thank BTW!
