Fork of yara-python that enables more modules by default

Project description

# magic-yara-python

This is a fork of the official yara-python library developed by VirusTotal ([GitHub](, [PyPI](, [documentation](

It introduces no functional differences but enables the following YARA modules by default:

In other words, installing magic-yara-python is equivalent to installing yara-python with the –enable-magic –enable-dotnet flags.

The reason this fork exists is that it is sometimes hard or inconvenient to provide these flags, depending on your method of installation. For example, setuptools provides no means to supply additional build options for its install_requires entries. If you install via pip you can set these options through –global-option flags, but that becomes unwieldy quickly. magic-yara-python is meant as an easy workaround for these cases.
