Two ways to install
1. Install from prebuilt binaries
This is the recommended way to get started. All you need to do is:
pip install frida-tools # CLI tools pip install frida # Python bindings npm install frida # Node.js bindings
You may also download pre-built binaries for various operating systems from Frida's releases page on GitHub.
2. Build your own binaries
For running the Frida CLI tools, i.e.
frida-discover, you need Python plus a
pip3 install colorama prompt-toolkit pygments
macOS and iOS
First make a trusted code-signing certificate. You can use the guide at
https://sourceware.org/gdb/wiki/PermissionsDarwin in the sections
“Create a certificate in the System Keychain” and “Trust the certificate
for code signing”. You can use the name
frida-cert instead of
if you'd like.
Next export the name of the created certificate to the environment variables
IOS_CERTID, and run
export MACOS_CERTID=frida-cert export IOS_CERTID=frida-cert make
To ensure that macOS accepts the newly created certificate, restart the
sudo killall taskgated
(Requires Visual Studio 2019.)
