Build Status

hexyl is a simple hex viewer for the terminal. It uses a colored output to distinguish different categories of bytes (NULL bytes, printable ASCII characters, ASCII whitespace characters, other ASCII characters and non-ASCII).



On Debian-based systems

wget ""
sudo dpkg -i hexyl_0.5.0_amd64.deb

On Arch Linux

You can install hexyl from the official package repository:

pacman -S hexyl

On macOS

brew install hexyl

On FreeBSD

pkg install hexyl

Via Nix

nix-env -i hexyl

On other distributions

Check out the release page for binary builds.

On Windows

For now, you will have to install from source via cargo (see below). Make sure that you use a terminal that supports ANSI escape sequences (like PowerShell on Windows 10).

Via cargo
