We went live with our AI on 1. Sept 2016. This caused a totally fucked up
and necessary hard rebase. If your Fork does not contain the
:balloon: AI History starts here on its
master branch, please delete
it and re-fork it again.
We hope that this will not occur again in future, but git has harsh
problems with rebases and squash-merges of overly complex branches
(read: 500k+ commits per day). So we essentially use that specific
commit to rebase onto from the
Thank you for your understanding.
Work-in-Progress (aka alpha)
These are the things that we are currently working on:
- lychee.ai.neat (ES/HyperNEAT AI) is being refactored.
- lychee.js Editor is being refactored to integrate all Cultivator Tools' functionalities.
- lychee.js Guide is subject to change (to integrate new AI / Editor stack).
- lychee.js Garden is being implemented.
The lychee.js Project started in 2012 and is in active development. The following Repositories are related to the lychee.js Engine:
- lychee.js Guide contains architecture explanations and concept documentations (WIP).
- lychee.js Runtime contains all pre-compiled lychee.js Runtimes and Fertilizers.
- lychee.js Library contains the lychee.js Library (installable via
- lychee.js Harvester contains the lychee.js Harvester (forked from
- lychee.js Website contains the lychee.js Website (hosted at https://lychee.js.org).
- lychee.js Bundle generates the OS-ready lychee.js Bundles (published at releases section).
- lychee.js Future contains all Concepts and Ideas not yet finished.
The following Accounts are related to the lychee.js Engine:
- @cookiengineer is the core maintainer and founder of this project.
- @humansneednotapply is the account used by our software bots.
lychee.js is a Next-Gen Isomorphic Application Engine that offers a complete solution for prototyping, development, maintenance and deployment of applications. The underlying technology stack does not matter (HTML5, WebGL, OpenGL, OpenGLES, libSDL) and is completely automated behind the scenes.
The lychee.js Engine aims to deliver Total Automation through Artificial Intelligence and better Software Architecture.
Everything listed here requires zero lines of code overhead and is already fully integrated in the lychee.js Boilerplate:
The lychee.js Core and Definition System:
- Isomorphic Application Engine (runs pretty much everywhere)
- Composite Pattern inspired Entity/Component System
- Definition System embraces Simplicity and Feature Detection
- Sandboxing System embraces automated Error Reports, Analytics and Debugging
- Serialization System allows Re-Simulation on any Platform
- Built-In Offline Storage Management and Network Synchronization
The lychee.js Software Bots:
- Graphical Asset Management and Entity/Scene Design Tool (Editor)
- Graphical Project Management and Server Maintenance Tool (Ranger)
- Command-Line Continous Integration Server (Harvester)
- Command-Line Wizard for Projects and Libraries (Breeder)
- Command-Line Builder and Cross-Compiler (Fertilizer)
- Command-Line Fuzz-Tester and Code-Refactorer (Strainer)
Features of the lychee.js Software Bots:
- Automated Code Refactoring, Bug Fixing and Code Improvements
- Automated Design Tracking, Layout and Flow Optimization
- Automated Packaging for Embedded, Console, Mobile, Desktop and Server Apps
- Automated Deployment via git and Live-Updates
- Automated Reactive/Responsive UI/UX Components
- Automated Debugging, Network and UI/UX Flow Analysis
- Automated Testing and Integration with the AI
- Automated Networking (Peer-to-Peer HTTP1.1/2.0 and WS13 with Local/Global Discovery)
- Automated Network Services and Traffic Balancing/Sharding
Every (not sandboxed) lychee.js Harvester is connected to the lychee.js Peer Cloud and is contributing to the evolutionary AI's knowledge and improves its capabilities for all others.
The lychee.js Engine uses CARTEL/ES-HyperNEAT as an evolutionary AI that is connected to a Botnet of lychee.js Harvesters. Each and every Definition written in lychee.js contributes to the AI so that it can predict, suggest and improve all other Projects.
The development process is optimized for Blink-based web browsers (Chromium, Google Chrome, Opera) and their developer tools. We honestly recommend NOT using Firefox due to lack of developer and debugging tools nor has it any remote debugging protocol.
We ain't doing HTML5 websites or single-page-webapps here. If you want to teach lychee.js those Legacy Technologies, there's the lychee.js Legacy Library.
Platform / Fertilizer Support
The target platforms are described as so-called Fertilizers.
Those Fertilizers cross-compile everything automagically
using a serialized
lychee.Environment that is setup in
each project's or library's
|GNU/Linux||html-nwjs, node, node-sdl||bin||x||x||x|
|OSX||html-nwjs, node, node-sdl||app, bin||x|
|Windows||html-nwjs, node, node-sdl||exe||x||x|

|BlackberryOS||html-webview, node, node-sdl||apk, bin||x||x||x|
|Ubuntu Touch||html-webview, node||deb, bin||x||x||x|
The iOS Fertilizer has currently no support for cross-compilation
due to XCode's gcc limitations. You can still create an own WebView
iOS App and use the
html platform adapter.
This is the it-works-failsafe guide of how to install the lychee.js Engine on your development machine. For everything related to Bundles, Dev Ops, Security, Deployments and Virtualization - please consult the lychee.js Guide.
The Net Installer automatically installs the lychee.js Engine
on any UNIX-compatible machine (arm, x86 or amd64). The only
requirements beforehand are working
The lychee.js Engine installation requires at least 2GB of free
memory space at
/opt/lycheejs. 4GB are recommended to have a
fully working AI knowledge integration.
Depending on your internet connection speed, the installation will take a couple minutes (needs to download ca. 500MB zip file of runtime binaries which is hosted in the releases section of the lycheejs-runtime repository).
- Windows is unsupported as development host. Use a VM or the Dockerfile instead.
- GNU/Linux requires either of
- Mac OSX requires brew installed beforehand.
- FreeBSD/NetBSD requires
pkginstalled and Linux Compatibility activated beforehand.
# Install lychee.js Engine into /opt/lycheejs sudo bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://lychee.js.org/install.sh)";
lycheejs-harvester integrates all projects with the
Software Bots. Start the
development profile and open
http://localhost:8080 in your Blink-based Browser.

The lychee.js Project is tightly integrated with our Artificial Intelligence, which is represented by the account @humansneednotapply.
If you want to have our AI to learn and improve from your project
(read the LICENSE section for caveats first), you need to create a
Personal Access Token
repo rights and put the token in the
cd /opt/lycheejs; echo "MY-PERSONAL-ACCESS-TOKEN" > .github/TOKEN;
Then you must add the account @humansneednotapply
to your lychee.js Project's repository collaborators in its
Settings > Collaborators & teams section.
- You need to add @humansneednotapply to each of your lychee.js Projects' repositories.
- You do not need to add @humansneednotapply to your lychee.js Fork.
If you want to develop lychee.js Projects or Libraries, the
lychee.js Guide helps you to get started easily.
