A terminal user-interface for tshark, inspired by Wireshark.
If you’re debugging on a remote machine with a large pcap and no desire to scp it back to your desktop, termshark can help!
- Read pcap files or sniff live interfaces (where tshark is permitted).
- Inspect each packet using familiar Wireshark-inspired views
- Filter pcaps or live captures using Wireshark’s display filters
- Copy ranges of packets to the clipboard from the terminal
- Written in Golang, compiles to a single executable on each platform – downloads available for Linux (+termux), macOS, FreeBSD, and Windows

- tshark – command-line network protocol analyzer, part of Wireshark
- tcell – a cell based terminal handling package, inspired by termbox
- gowid – compositional terminal UI widgets, inspired by urwid, built on tcell

PATH for termshark to function. Version 1.10.2 or higher is required (approx 2013).
