Slither, the Solidity source analyzer
Slither is a Solidity static analysis framework written in Python 3. It runs a suite of vulnerability detectors, prints visual information about contract details, and provides an API to easily write custom analyses. Slither enables developers to find vulnerabilities, enhance their code comphrehension, and quickly prototype custom analyses.
- Detects vulnerable Solidity code with low false positives
- Detection of most major smart contract vulnerabilities
- Detection of poor coding practices
- Identifies where the error condition occurs in the source code
- Easy integration into continuous integration pipelines
- Four built-in 'printers' quickly report crucial contract information
- Detector API to write custom analyses in Python
- Ability to analyze contracts written with Solidity > 0.4
Support for advanced value- and taint-tracking is coming soon!
$ slither tests/uninitialized.sol [..] INFO:Detectors:Uninitialized state variables in tests/uninitialized.sol, Contract: Uninitialized, Vars: destination, Used in ['transfer'] [..]
If Slither is run on a directory, it will run on every
.sol file of the directory. All vulnerability checks are run by default.
--solc SOLC: Path to
--solc-args SOLC_ARGS: Add custom solc arguments.
SOLC_ARGScan contain multiple arguments
--disable-solc-warnings: Do not print solc warnings
--solc-ast: Use the solc AST file as input (
solc file.sol --ast-json > file.ast.json)
--json FILE: Export results as JSON
--exclude-name: Excludes the detector
--printer-summary: Print a summary of the contracts
--printer-quick-summary: Print a quick summary of the contracts
--printer-inheritance: Print the inheritance graph
--printer-vars-and-auth: Print the variables written and the check on
msg.senderof each function
By default, all the checks are run.

How to install
Slither requires Python 3.6+ and solc, the Solidity compiler.
$ git clone https://github.com/trailofbits/slither.git & cd slither $ python setup.py install
