From r2 shell

  • Directions can be found in the r2wiki.py
  • In order for this to work, you need a local copy of the wiki. You can get it from github

  • The argument supports regex and the output is in less format

  • Because the output is using less, you can highlight/search using / or show only matching lines by using &

  • /path/to/repo/r2wiki.py needs to be absolute path

  • This can be accessed multiple ways.

    • Method 1: Set an alias in your ~/.radare2rc file
      sh echo '$'wiki="#"'!'"pipe python /path/to/repo/r2wiki.py" >> ~/.radare2rc

    !pipe python /path/to/repo/r2wiki.py


Tips for local wiki (applies to wiki.js version 1.0.12)

To style your local wiki in a manner similar to the online version, add the following to the /wiki_installation_dir/server/views/layout.pug under the section marked as //- JS / CSS
```css style(type='text/css'). .mkcontent { font-family: Arial; }

   .mkcontent {
     font-size: 16px;

To change the search behaviour of your local wiki similar to that of the online version, change the following lines in `server/libs/search.js` - Line 73 to 1 - Line 78 to 0 - Line 88 to 3 - Line 175 to 20 ```
