Install and Sources
Install from git:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:gbrindisi/wordpot.git
Find the source on github.
You can use a wordpress theme as you would in a normal Wordpress installation by putting the theme folder in the
static/wp-content/themes/ directory. You might also need to edit the html skeleton which is stored in the
templates/ folder and should be named as your theme (e.g.
themename.html) - take a look at
twentyeleven.html to see how it works.
To use the theme start wordpot with the theme option (default value is
$ python wordpot --theme=THEMENAME
Templates are built with the Jinja2 template engine.
Expandable with plugins (beta)
Wordpot can be expanded with plugins to improve its behaviour or just expand some functionalities.
For example you can write a plugin to mimick a particular vulnerability in a Wordpress plugin or theme.
