Before we start!! Let me tell you that I was planning to write on Sherlock, but it would be damn harder for beginners to modify the source, and learning the concept would be harder too. So, I found the basic and easy-to-customize checker application which will help you learn easily. 😉

Greetings, everyone! Today, in this lesson, you will learn how to easily trace someone on all social networks for free. Yeah! so let me introduce you to Emora Project, an OSINT tool for finding usernames across social networks. I found it a powerful open-source tool inspired by Sherlock, designed to help us search for accounts by username across various social networks. It has a simple user interface that simplifies the process of navigating search results. As it is an open-source so you can download the sorce code from below URL & modify it by adding support to additional social networks and more.

So, let me guide you through the installation process of Emora. I’ll divide it into 2 for simplicity..

  1. Using Setup: For those who prefer not to customize the software themselves, the setup file can be downloaded from https://github.com/Prescoter/Emora-Project/releases/tag/v1.0.
  2. Customizing from Source Code: Learners interested in building the software themselves will need to install Visual Studio 2022 or higher. Visual Studio can be downloaded from its official website. (https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/thank-you-downloading-visual-studio/?sku=Community&channel=Release&version=VS2022&source=VSLandingPage&passive=false&cid=2030)

Downloading Setup File

Download Setup File using the official link provided for Emora’s setup file. Download the EmoraPortable.exe / EmoraSetup.exe file if you want to normally use it with default features OR Download the Source code(zip) if you want to modify the source code to integrate additional features and checks.


Installation & Usage

If you download the normal .exe file, it’s directly ready to use. You can run it and use normally. But if you’ve downloaded the source code, then you can customize and build Emora from its source code. Before building Emora from source, ensure you have Visual Studio 2022 or a higher version installed on your computer. You can download Visual Studio from its official website as I mentioned above in this lesson.

Guide for those who want to customize..

Launch Visual Studio on your computer. (Make sure you’ve installed as noted above)

In Visual Studio, select “Open a project or solution” from the start page.
Navigate to the directory where you cloned the Emora repository.

Select the Emora solution file and open it.

Once the Emora project is loaded in Visual Studio, you can explore the codebase and make customizations as desired. (Example: You can add additional support for social networks that are not present in the list.)

Once you’ve made the edits, click on the “Build” menu and choose “Build Solution” to compile Emora from the source code.

After the build process completes, verify that Emora was built successfully without any errors or warnings.

Once the build is successful, you can find the Emora executable file in the output directory. (Emora-Project-main\Emora-Project-main\Emora\bin\Debug\Emora.exe)

Double-click on the Emora executable to launch the application.

Remember: If you make any improvements or fixes, consider contributing back to the Emora project by submitting a pull request on GitHub.
