@g0tmi1k This is not a new tool request but an improvement for bettercap package. Caplets are small scripts which automate several tasks in bettercap sessions. They are developed by the same team of bettercap as a complement to the tool and examples of what can be scripted with bettercap inner modules. They can be executed as a parameter for bettercap commandline:

bettercap -caplet ./beef-active.cap

Or called within an interactive bettercap session like any other module. There are some examples in the oficial github:

Dependencies are only bettercap, and don't need to be compiled since they are interpreted by bettercap itself. Probably the best way to incorporate them is making a new package to install to /usr/share and mark it as recommended by bettercap. License is GPLv3.
