Spyrit is a modern graphical client for textual roleplaying games of the MUSH, MUCK, MOO and MUD kind. It aims to be simple and pleasant to use, while providing a number of features to make your roleplaying more enjoyable:

  • Tabs with activity indications.
  • Multiline input with history and togglable secondary input.
  • Full Unicode support.
  • Logging with ANSI colors.
  • Split screen when scrolling back.
  • /commands with full help (type /help from any session for a list).

Spyrit is a work in progress, and there are still a number of things missing before we can release version 1.0, first and foremost, configuration screens. For now you can configure things with the /settings command.


Spyrit requires Python 3.6 or later, Qt 5.6 or later, and the PyQt5 bindings. On Ubuntu and other Debian-like OS, install the package python3-pyqt5 and you will be good to go. Alternatively, install it with pip: pip install PyQt5

On Windows, install Python 3.6 or later from and the Windows binary PyQt5 package from for Python 3.6.

Windows and Mac OS X users may want to download the latest binary release for their OS from our Website instead.


No installation is required. Spyrit can run straight from the current directory.

Start Spyrit by running in this directory.


Spyrit is still a work in progress. Some things stand to be improved, and others are outright missing. Please give us feedback on GitHub:
