The other day I noticed someone in a popular InfoSec certification Discord server asking if anyone else had used Ronin. They said that Ronin looked interesting, but were unsure whether they should take the risk to learn a new tool.

Each new year people make New Year’s Resolutions to try new things or to better themselves. For 2024 why not make your New Year’s Resolution to try Ronin? Browse the GitHub organization and checkout the various repositories. Read the example commands and code in their READMEs. Try installing Ronin using the automatic installer script. Try running some of the ronin commands. Use the ronin tips command to learn about Ruby’s commands and Ruby scripting APIs. Use --help to open a command’s man page and see it’s options. Don’t want to install Ronin directly on to your system, there’s also Docker images you can jump into. Now has never been a better time to try Ronin.

Even if you end up not liking Ronin, you can always uninstall it and forget about it. So why not give Ronin a shot in 2024? You don’t have anything to lose.

If Ronin interests you or you like the work we do, consider donating to Ronin on GitHub, Patreon, or Open Collective so we can continue building high-quality free and Open Source security tools and Ruby libraries.
