Shellerator is a simple command-line tool aimed to help pentesters quickly generate one-liner reverse/bind shells in multiple languages (Bash, Powershell, Java, Python...). This project is inspired by Print-My-Shell . I just rewrote it and added some options and glitter to it. The lists of reverse and bind shells are not perfect yet. I'll work on this when I have the time to. I'll be happy to review pull requests too :)

The install is pretty simple, just clone this git and install the requirements.

git clone
pip3 install --user -r requirements.txt

Usage is dead simple too.

usage: [-h] [-b | -r] [-t TYPE] [-p LPORT] [-i LHOST]

Generate a bind/reverse shell

optional arguments:
  -h, --help              show this help message and exit
  -l, --list            Print all the types of shells shellerator can generate
  -b, --bind-shell        Generate a bind shell (you connect to the target)
  -r, --reverse-shell     Generate a reverse shell (the target connects to you)(Default)

Bind shell options:
  -t TYPE, --type TYPE    Type of the shell to generate (Bash, Powershell, Java...)
  -p LPORT, --port LPORT  [Listener](<> "Listener" ) Port

Reverse shell options:
  -t TYPE, --type TYPE    Type of the shell to generate (Bash, Powershell, Java...)
  -i LHOST, --ip LHOST    Listener IP address
  -p LPORT, --port LPORT  Listener Port

Without CLI menus
If you already know what type of shell you want to generate and don't have time to select the language in the beautiful CLI menu, you can set it with the appropriate -t (or --type ) option.

python3 [-r | -b] -t/--type bash -i/--ip -p/--port 1337

To-Do List

Things to add
Here are some things to add that I have in mind, I'll work on that asap

  • Add bindshells
  • Add encrypted shells and separate them from bind/rev ?
  • Add some kind of option to help user get info on how to improve shell/tty (rlwrap, stty, ConPty (cf. PayloadsAllTheThings))

Shells mostly come from the following links
