IDArling is a collaborative reverse engineering plugin for IDA Pro and Hex-Rays. It allows to synchronize in real-time the changes made to a database by multiple users, by connecting together different instances of IDA Pro.

The main features of IDArling are:

  • hooking general user events
  • structure and enumeration support
  • Hex-Rays decompiler syncing
  • replay engine and auto-saving
  • database loading and saving
  • interactive status bar widget
  • user cursors (instructions, functions, navbar)
  • invite and following an user moves
  • dedicated server using Qt5
  • integrated server within IDA
  • LAN servers discovery
  • following an user moves in real time

If you have any questions not worthy of a bug report, feel free to ping us at #idarling on freenode and ask away.


This project is under active development. Feel free to send a PR if you would like to help! :-)

It is not really stable in its current state, please stayed tuned for a first release of the project!


Install the IDArling client into the IDA plugins folder.

  • Copy and the idarling folder to the IDA plugins folder.
    • On Windows, the folder is at C:\Program Files\IDA 7.x\plugins
    • On macOS, the folder is at /Applications/IDA\ Pro\ 7.x/idabin/plugins
    • On Linux, the folder may be at ~/ida-7.x/plugins/
  • Alternatively, you can use the "easy install" method by copying the following line into the console:
import urllib2; exec(urllib2.urlopen('')).read()

Warning: The plugin is only compatible with IDA Pro 7.x on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

The dedicated server requires PyQt5, which is integrated into IDA. If you're using an external Python installation, we recommand using Python 3, which offers a pre-built package that can be installed with a simple pip install PyQt5.


Open the Settings dialog accessible from the right-clicking the widget located in the status bar. Show the servers list by clicking on the Network Settings tabs and add your server to it. Connect to the server by clicking on it after right-clicking the widget again. Finally, you should be able to access the following menus to upload or download a database:

- File --> Open from server
- File --> Save to server


This project is inspired by Sol[IDA]rity. It started after contacting its authors and asking if it was ever going to be released to the public. Lighthouse source code was also carefully studied to understand how to write better IDA plugins.

Thanks to Quarkslab for allowing this release.
