A tool to scan sites for mixed content
This repo contains a tool called
mixed-content-scanner that can help you find pieces of mixed content on your site. This is how you can use it:
mixed-content-scanner scan https://spatie.be
And of course our company site reports no mixed content.
Here's an example of a local test server that does contain some mixed content:
You can install the package via composer:
composer global require spatie/mixed-content-scanner-cli
When scanning a site, the tool will crawl every page. On all html retrieved, these elements and attributes will be checked:
If any of those attributes start with
http:// the element will be regarded as mixed content.
The tool does not scan linked
.js files. Inline
<style> are not taken into consideration.
You can scan a site by using the
scan command followed by the url
mixed-content-scanner scan https://example.com
You might want to check your site for mixed content before actually launching it. It's quite common your site doesn't have an ssl certificate installed yet at that point. That's why by default the tool will not verify ssl certificates.
If you want to turn on ssl verification just use the
mixed-content-scanner scan https://self-signed.badssl.com/ --verify-ssl
That examples will result in non responding urls because the host does not have a valid ssl certificate
You can filter which urls are going to be crawled by passing regex to the
In this example we are only going to crawl pages starting with
mixed-content-scanner scan https://spatie.be --filter="^\/en"
You can use multiple filters:
mixed-content-scanner scan https://spatie.be --filter="^\/en" --filter="^\/nl"
You can also ignore certain urls. Here we are going to ignore all url's that contain the word
mixed-content-scanner scan https://spatie.be --ignore="opensource"
Of course you can also combine filters and ignores:
mixed-content-scanner scan https://spatie.be --filter="^\/en" --ignore="opensource"
By default, the crawler will respect robots data. You can ignore them though with the
mixed-content-scanner scan https://example.com --ignore-robots
