Build Status FOSSA Status

Server or Embedded Linux are often headless, so accessing the resource on these systems is not always obvious. The aim of this project is to develop a client core API that enables desktop like experience to remote server's resource accessing using web technologies. AntOS is based on jQuery and Riot, it is designed to be used along with our antd server and Lua based server side app, but it can also be adapted to any server side languages (PHP, etc) and server, by implementing all the system calls API defined in core/handlers/ Basically, application design for the web os relies on these system calls to communicating with the server. The API defines the core UI, system calls (to server), Virtual File system, virtual database and the necessary libraries for easing the development of webOS's applications. Applications can be developped with coffee/javascript/css without the need of a server side script.

Note that, the development of the project is in early alpha state, so bugs are very welcome :) The WebOS is tested on recent Firefox, Chrome and Safari, however i did not test it on IE or Edge since i have no Windows device :)


A demo of the web desktop is available at my page using username: demo and password: demo


AntOS applications


Note that this is only the client API, to make it work for your application, you need to implement all the system calls in core/handlers/ using a server side scripting language (e.g. PHP). I'm planning to release an API documentation which describes what need to be sent and what will be returned for each system call in near future (i'm kind of very busy right now :) ).

I'm a big fan of the Make system, so i use it as a build system for all of my projects. So, to build AntOS:

  1. You need to have make installed. Then since most of the API is written in Coffee script, you will need it to be installed too.
  2. Edit the BUILDDIR variable in the Makefile file to point to where you want to put the built API
  3. Type make then you are good to go.

It you have any problem, please contact me or open an issue, i'll try to response ASAP.
