Very cool project. It would be even cooler if you could actually send your hand-crafted packets to a modifiable host/IP once you're done. To test if the user actually succeeded in creating a valid packet.

Yeah, that would be nice!

The complete Python based graphical scripting environment with import/edit of Pcap files and other goodies beta is scheduled for release in mid-to-end of July. If you want to be a beta tester, follow @wirefloss on twitter.

Great tool.

A clear text output box would be fine (since there are a few text based protocol which could be handled more easily if we would have clear text instead of hex).

Or allow user to toggle between them.

Yep, it's all there already :). See my comments about beta release above.

Say u have a single packet Pcap, with a multi-layer binary encoded packet. Click the button, get a complete editable stack graph pre-populated with values from the packet. Edit layers in concert (no annoying Copy/Paste between layers as in wirefloss.com). When done, click and auto-generate a Python code stub sending the new packet to a wire. Coming soon!

Any chance there is an open source repo for this somewhere?

Oh, well... no :(. The tool will be free, but it's not going to be open source. At least, not initially.
