bluetuith is a TUI-based bluetooth connection manager, which can interact with bluetooth adapters and devices. It aims to be a replacement to most bluetooth managers, like blueman.

This is only available on Linux.

This project is currently in the alpha stage.


  • Perform pairing with authentication.
  • Perform connection/disconnection to different devices.
  • Interact with bluetooth adapters, toggle power and discovery states
  • Mouse support


  • Bluez
  • DBus


If the go compiler is present in your system, you can install it via the following command: go install github.com/darkhz/bluetuith@latest. Make sure that $HOME/go/bin is in your $PATH.

Or you can navigate to the releases section and download a binary that matches your architecture.
