Experimental Build

Do you like to live life on the edge? Throw caution to the wind? Bowl without the bumpers? Well you’re in luck, we have the perfect build of hawkscan for you!

The hawkscan dev build is updated multiple times a week with the latest and greatest changes, including bug fixes, updates from ZAP, and shiny new features. It is now available immediately upon the changes being made, rather than having to wait for a release. The dev build is available through Docker and Brew. Due to the cutting edge nature of this build, it is EXPERIMENTAL, meaning we do not guarantee the stability of it, so use at your own risk!


To get the dev build from Dockerhub, use the dev tag on the image rather than latest or a specific pinned version.

docker run -e API_KEY=$HAWK_API_KEY --rm -v $(pwd):/hawk:rw -t stackhawk/hawkscan:dev


To get the dev build from brew, simply install the new hawk-dev formula. If you already have the stable hawk formula installed, you may need to uninstall or unlink stable and link hawk-dev for the cli to use the new dev build. Make sure to run a brew upgrade to verify you are getting the latest version of the dev formula, as it updates frequently.

brew upgrade && brew install stackhawk/cli/hawk-dev
