biscuit - Modular HTTP cookie parser
Copyright (C) 2012 Andrea Cardaci <>
biscuit simplifies the managing and the organization of cookies, it reads
lines from standard input in the form:
host name=value; name=value; ...
parses them and applies some logic according to its known services, for

it skips some useless fields in the output. The result is dumped on standard
output. Several formats are available: quoted Javascript to be pasted in the
URL bar of the browser, Wget command invocation, etc.
Both service and printer interfaces are modular.
python (>= 2.7.3)
List all the available services:
$ biscuit list services
List all the available printers:
$ biscuit list printers
Describe the "js-url" printer:
$ biscuit describe js-url
Parse a text file processing all known services and also reporting unknown
cookies using the default printer:
$ biscuit parse < cookies.txt
Use tshark to extract cookies from a pcap file and process only the facebook
ones using Javascript output, unknown cookies are discarded:
$ tshark -r file.cap \
-R 'http.cookie and' \
-T fields -e -e http.cookie \
| biscuit parse -n js-url facebook

A module is a Python file located in services/ for the former and in
printers/ for the latter. Working examples can be found in that folders.
Both default service (core/ and printer
(core/ can be used as a template for creating new
