Read The Docs



The elementals python package is a utility package with handy tools for CTF scripts and PoC-style scripts. What was first implemented for personal use in small research scripts was now upgraded to be used by security researchers as a lightweight substitute to the famous pwntools package.

The features included in elementals are:

  • Logger: Basic (logging based) logger - configured and ready to use
  • Prompter: Metasploit based stdout wrapper for the logger
  • ProgressBar: User-friendly graphical progress bar
  • StatusBar: User-friendly graphical status bar
  • createAnchor: Creates a time-stamped output directory for all script outputs
  • hexDump: Stylized hex dump for binary blobs / strings
