A tool for visualizing binary data using a colour palette

Project description

A Python port of pixd, a tool for visualizing binary data using a colour palette. It is in a lot of ways akin to a hexdump tool, except using coloured squares to represent each octet.


pixd uses 24-bit color SGR escape sequences. For a list of terminal emulators with support for these, see XVilka’s list of supporting terminal emulators.


To install

$ pip install pixd

To display a file
