You want to add awesome features to Aura? Here's how:

Fork Aura-Operating-System repo

Commit & push a new feature to the forked repository

Open a pull request so we can merge your work in this repository :)

Try Aura

Download VMWare at this address. Install and run it.

Now click on "Create a new virtual machine", select the iso file downloaded on this page and click the "Next" button.

Now click on "Other" for "Guest operating system" and "Other" for version, click "Next" again, select "Store virtual disk as a single file" and select "Finish".

The Virtual File System won't work so go to "C:\Users\username\Documents\Virtual Machines\Other" and replace the "Other.vmdk" by this file.

Now you can select Aura (Other) and click on "Play Virtual Machine".

Compile Aura ?

First, clone our modified version of Cosmos and all of the required repositories, run the "install-VS2017.bat" file in the Cosmos folder and wait until the installation is done. Required repositories :

  • Aura OS
  • Common
  • Cosmos
  • IL2CPU
  • XSharp

Pre-requisites :

  • Latest version of VS 2017
  • .NET Core SDK 2.1
  • Inno Quick Start Pack (Free) – Install with defaults, keep Preprocessor option checked
  • Visual Studio 2017 Workload: Visual Studio Extension Development
  • .NET Framework 4.7.1 Developer Pack

You need to put all of the cloned repositories in the same folder, like that : image

Now clone this repository then inside the folder Aura OS, run Aura OS.sln and select "build" once Visual Studio 2017 has loaded.

If you have an error like "A project with an Output type of Class Library cannot be started directly", right click on "Aura_OSBoot" and select "Set as startup project", now click again on "build"!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
