  • Termshark now colorizes its packet list view by default, using the current Wireshark colorfilter rules.
  • Termshark now supports tshark's -t option to specify the timestamp format in the packet list view.


  • Fixed a potential deadlock when reassembling very long streams.

2.0.0 - 2019-11-10


  • Termshark supports TCP and UDP stream reassembly. See termshark's "Analysis" menu.
  • By popular demand, termshark now has a dark mode! To turn on, run termshark and open the menu.
  • Termshark can be configured to "auto-scroll" when reading live data (interface, fifo or stdin).
  • Termshark uses less CPU, is less laggy under mouse input, and will use less than half as much RAM on larger pcaps.
  • Termshark now supports piped input e.g.
$ tshark -i eth0 -w - | termshark
  • Termshark now supports input from a fifo e.g.
1$ mkfifo myfifo
1$ tshark -i eth0 -w myfifo
2$ termshark -r myfifo
  • Termshark supports running its UI on a different tty (make sure the tty doesn't have another process competing for reads and writes). This is useful if you are feeding termshark with data from a process that writes to stderr, or if you want to see information displayed in the terminal that would be covered up by termshark's UI e.g.
termshark -i eth0 --tty=/dev/pts/5
  • Like Wireshark, termshark will now preserve the opened and closed structure of a packet as you move from one packet to the next. This lets the user see differences between packets more easily.
  • Termshark can now be installed for MacOS from Homebrew.
  • Termshark now respects job control signals sent via the shell i.e. SIGTSTP and SIGCONT.
  • Termshark on Windows no longer depends on the Cywgin tail command (and thus a Cygwin installation).
  • The current packet capture source (file, interface, pipe, etc) is displayed in the termshark title bar.
  • Termshark can be configured to eagerly load all pcap PDML data, rather than 1000 packets at a time.


  • You can now simply hit enter in the display filter widget to make its value take effect.

1.0.0 - 2019-04-17

  • Initial release.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
