Project description


Generating tags file according to the DWARF debug information in the binary file.


  • SQLAlchemy
  • SQLite3


# Ubuntu
apt install sqlite3
# ArchLinux
pacman -S sqlite3
pip install btags

Usage -j 2 -c /dir/to/the/build/root /path/to/the/binary
  • -j max worker threads
  • -c specify the directory under which the binary is compiled

After, you will get a tags file under current working directory.

It can be used as following

vim -t main

For examples Assume there is a autoconf project under dir /tmp/project, and you use the following command to build it.

cd /tmp/project
mkdir build
cd build

Then, /tmp/project/build will be the build root, because the project is compiled under this directory.


  • [] Replace sqlite with other faster data store mean
  • [] Add test cases
  • [] Add Travis CI support
