Hello, I've successfully used FiddlerCore on windows to capture net traffic in Python script.

Now I want to try it on Linux. I followed the guide to install fiddler-linux based on mono, but after installation I don't find FiddlerCore*.dll. How shall I install FiddlerCore on Linux?

Thanks.

Hello, me again. Need to mention that I've searched in the forum and there's a post mentioned FiddlerCore on Linux:

https://www.telerik.com/forums/fiddler-crashes-with-mono-exception-at-launch

and the link mentioned in it was: https://www.telerik.com/blogs/fiddlercore-for-net-standard-and-fiddler-orchestra-the-future-of-fiddler

The latter mentioned that "Today we released FiddlerCore (the engine behind Fiddler) beta for .NET Standard 2.0 (just download FiddlerCore and you'll find the beta inside; no dedicated download needed).

And I checked the FiddlerCore installation package, there's a "FiddlerCore for .NET Standard Beta" folder in it. But it's .cs code so I'd like to confirm whether it's true that till today on Linux, FiddlerCore can only be used in .NET code?

Hi Olivia,

Thank you for using the Fiddler Forums. Let me address these items below.

Part 1 - The FiddlerCore download archive includes the necessary assemblies for FiddlerCore*.dll. These need to be referenced in the .NET .csproj file.

Part 2 - The FiddlerCore for .NET Standard Beta project would need to be built and executed with .NET. As an alternative, we do have Fiddler Everywhere that can be deployed as an AppImage on Linux and used with any application.

Please let me know if you need any additional information. Thank you.

Regards,

Eric R
