Voltron is an extensible debugger UI toolkit written in Python. It aims to improve the user experience of various debuggers (LLDB, GDB, VDB and WinDbg) by enabling the attachment of utility views that can retrieve and display data from the debugger host. By running these views in other TTYs, you can build a customised debugger user interface to suit your needs.

If your debugger has an init script (.lldbinit for LLDB or .gdbinit for GDB) configure it to load Voltron when it starts by sourcing the /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/voltron/entry.py entry point script.

command script import /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/voltron/entry.py

source /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/voltron/entry.py
voltron init
set disassembly-flavor intel
