  • snowman

    Snowman decompiler

  • lumen

    A private Lumina server for IDA Pro (by naim94a)

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • mrustc

    Alternative rust compiler (re-implementation)

    The simpler way to obtain C from Rust would be to use mrustc https://github.com/thepowersgang/mrustc

    Not that the C will be much more readable than the dissassembly, but there's a chance less information will be lost.

  • llvm-cbe

    resurrected LLVM "C Backend", with improvements

  • rellic

    Rellic produces goto-free C output from LLVM bitcode

  • dire

    Neural Variable Renaming for Decompiled Binaries

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned DIRE[0] yet. They did exactly this and got some very impressive results.
