Frida

Dynamic instrumentation toolkit for developers, reverse-engineers, and security researchers. Learn more at frida.re.

Two ways to install

1. Install from prebuilt binaries

This is the recommended way to get started. All you need to do is:

pip install frida-tools # CLI tools
pip install frida       # Python bindings
npm install frida       # Node.js bindings

You may also download pre-built binaries for various operating systems from Frida's releases page on GitHub.

2. Build your own binaries

Dependencies

For running the Frida CLI tools, e.g. frida, frida-ls-devices, frida-ps, frida-kill, frida-trace, frida-discover, etc., you need Python plus a few packages:

pip install colorama prompt-toolkit pygments

Linux

make

Apple OSes

First make a trusted code-signing certificate. You can use the guide at https://sourceware.org/gdb/wiki/PermissionsDarwin in the sections “Create a certificate in the System Keychain” and “Trust the certificate for code signing”. You can use the name frida-cert instead of gdb-cert if you'd like.

Next export the name of the created certificate to relevant environment variables, and run make:

export MACOS_CERTID=frida-cert
export IOS_CERTID=frida-cert
export WATCHOS_CERTID=frida-cert
export TVOS_CERTID=frida-cert
make

To ensure that macOS accepts the newly created certificate, restart the taskgated daemon:

sudo killall taskgated

Windows

frida.sln

(Requires Visual Studio 2022.)

See https://frida.re/docs/building/ for details.
