Generate tag file according to the debug information such as DWARF including in the binary file

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
