  • r2ghidra

    Native Ghidra Decompiler for r2

    I'm amazed at how often it does better than hexrays decompiler wise.

    It's pretty spectacular.

    Radare2 has a plugin for using ghidra's decompiler too

    So you can get all of the terminal level unix like goodness of radare2, yet still get really great ghidra quality decompiler output.
