Project description

# Frida

Dynamic instrumentation toolkit for developers, reverse-engineers, and security researchers.

Two ways to install— ===

## 1. Install from prebuilt binaries

This is the recommended way to get started. All you need to do is:

pip install –user frida # CLI tools and Python bindings npm install frida # Node.js bindings

You may also download pre-built binaries for various operating systems from [](

## 2. Build your own binaries

### Dependencies

For running the Frida CLI tools, i.e. frida, frida-ls-devices, frida-ps, frida-kill, frida-trace, and frida-discover, you need Python plus a few packages:

pip3 install colorama prompt-toolkit pygments

### Linux


### macOS and iOS

First make a trusted code-signing certificate. You can use the guide at in the section “Creating a certificate”. You can use the name frida-cert instead of gdb-cert if you’d like.

Next export the name of the created certificate to the environment variables MAC_CERTID and IOS_CERTID and run make:

export MAC_CERTID=frida-cert export IOS_CERTID=frida-cert make

To ensure that macOS accepts the newly created certificate, restart the taskgated daemon:

sudo killall taskgated

### Windows


(Requires Visual Studio 2017.)

See []( for details.
