WTFramework – Detect Which Framework A Site Is Using, The Easy Way

WTFramework Summary

WTFramework is a dead simple, and well designed way to detect which framework a site is using as well as version. Being primarily a JavaScript developer I was always looking through the source to find which framework a certain site was using. Or to see if the developer had done something particularly cool with my favorite framework MooTools.

It was developed by Oskar Krawczyk and is implemented as a bookmark for any A grade browser. You simply drag it into your bookmarks bar and its installed. You can now use it on any site you visit. The notifications are “Growl” like and are very well designed.

Kudos to Oskar on this one, a dead simple, but time saving tool.

Installation

  1. Visit The Site
  2. Drag the big red icon into your bookmarks.
  3. It is now installed.

Fortunately For Us

Oskar has a public Git Hub repository for this. So if needs be you can change it to suit your needs.

Somehow I couldn’t make it work consistently. Sometimes it was just no response.

Taras, thats interesting… What browser are you attempting to use it. I’ve had it running fine on Firefox and Safari since the release. Let me know! Thanks!

So instead of Bowser detection we need Framework detection now ? ;)
Doesn’t sound nice.

ps: does it detect obfuscated and minified frameworks ?
