|Initial release||December 04, 2017|
|Written in||Qt C++|
|Operating system||Linux, macOS, Microsoft Windows|
Cutter is a free and open source reverse engineering platform powered by radare2. It is focusing on providing a modern, advanced and user-friendly cross-platform reverse-engineering software. Cutter enjoys the fast paced development of its core, radare2. This makes the project one of the most actively developed reverse engineering frameworks. Cutter is one of the most popular reverse-engineering software on GitHub. Cutter is actively maintained by a community of volunteers.
Cutter is the successor of the formerly known project Iaito which was created in 2017 to provide a modern C++ graphical user interface for radare2. When Iaito was abandoned by its developers, it was forked, rewritten and renamed to Cutter. Since then, Cutter became the official graphical user interface of radare2.
|Python Scripting Engine|
|Integrated radare2 console|
|Modern & Customizable UI|
Cutter support plugins written in Python and C++ using Qt for the GUI. As it is based on radare2, it also supports radare2 commands and scripts. Plugins make it possible to extend the features and functionality provided by Cutter. Notable and popular plugins can be later integrated into Cutter code-base and be part of the platform. Features that are harder to maintain or deprecated might be removed from Cutter's code-base and become external plugins. An example to such feature is Cutter's integration with the Jupyter Project that was removed from Cutter and became an external plugin.
