98.js

A web based Windows 98 desktop remake.

Includes:

Features:

  • Drop files onto the desktop, and they'll be stored in a virtual filesystem
  • Load Windows themes! Many are included in the Themes folder on the desktop.
  • Easter eggs (try a famous cheat code ๐Ÿ˜‰)
  • Meticulous detail in many areas (altho there's obviously lots "missing")
  • Help > Help Topics in Paint, Sound Recorder, Notepad, and Minesweeper
  • You can add the site to your homescreen on mobile

Development Setup

  • Install Git if you don't already have it.
  • Install Node.js if you don't already have it.
  • Open up a terminal / command prompt in the project directory, and run npm install to install dependencies.
  • Run npm start to start up a live-reloading development web server.

When pulling changes from git, run npm install again in case there are any new or updated dependencies. (If you know package-lock.json hasn't changed, you shouldn't need to do this.)

Some dependencies are versioned with npm, but pulled into the repo with npm run pull-libs
