Initializing the syntribos Environment

Once syntribos is installed, you must initialize the syntribos environment. This can be done manually, or with the init command.

$ syntribos init


By default, syntribos init fetches a set of default payload files from a remote repository maintained by our development team. These payload files are necessary for our fuzz tests to run. To disable this behavior, run syntribos with the --no_downloads flag. Payload files can also be fetched by running syntribos download --payloads at any time.

To specify a custom root for syntribos to be installed in, specify the --custom_root flag. This will skip prompts for information from the terminal, which can be handy for Jenkins jobs and other situations where user input cannot be retrieved.

If you’ve already run the init command but want to start over with a fresh environment, you can specify the --force flag to overwrite existing files. The --custom_root and --force flags can be combined to overwrite files in a custom install root.

Note: if you install syntribos to a custom install root, you must supply the --custom_root flag when running syntribos.


$ syntribos --custom_root /your/custom/path init --force
$ syntribos --custom_root /your/custom/path run
