Bazooka 💣

STATUS: I am currently writing components for a rewrite under a new name (Spectre) into a desktop app (will also be available as a CLI; and definitely still a web app after for convenience), until then, development has halted for this version and package. I will open up the new version soon when it is ready but you can find core components like tpmu that I am still working on. I still use this often so I try to work on the new version when I can but I do not have a lot of time these days.


Bazooka is a simple tool in Go to find and kill processes on your machine by name or port. It provides a Web UI to view, find and kill processes without having to use the command line all in one binary.



You can install Bazooka using Homebrew:

brew tap aosasona/bazooka
brew install bazooka


Download the latest release from the releases page and extract the zip file. Run the executable file to start the application or run it from the command line like so:

cd bazooka && ./bazooka --port=8080


According to the Docker documentation: The host networking driver only works on Linux hosts, and is not supported on Docker Desktop for Mac, Docker Desktop for Windows, or Docker EE for Windows Server. So this image is only guaranteed to work on Linux servers/machines.

Use this command to run the latest version of Bazooka image using Docker in detached mode (obviously). Replace -d with -it to see logs in real-time (quitting this will also stop the program)

docker pull trulyao/bazooka@latest # optional
docker run -d --pid=host --net=host trulyao/bazooka@latest

Build from source

You can also build the application from source by cloning the repository to your machine and running the following Make command:

make build

This will create a bazooka executable file in the /build directory. You can run this file to start the application.


Run the application with the following command:

bazooka -port 8080

By default, Bazooka runs on port 22000. You can change this by passing the -port flag.

Once the application is running, you can access the Web UI by visiting http://localhost:22000 in your browser. You can also change the port by passing the --port flag when starting the application.

NOTE: Bazooka requires root access to kill or even find some processes. You will be prompted for your password when you try to kill a process, you can also run the application with sudo to avoid this prompt.
