Status update, March 2018
mirage-platform is currently undergoing major refactoring. Please read this issue for detailed information.
The goal is to reuse the ocaml-freestanding work for the xen backend as well:
unixmoved to mirage-unix (release pending) and switched to topkg and ocamlbuild
bindingssubdirectories moved to mirage-xen (release pending), also switched to topkg and ocamlbuild
- the remaining
xen-posixsubdirectories will be deprecated once the move to ocaml-freestanding is complete
Mirage OS is a library operating system that constructs unikernels for secure, high-performance network applications across a variety of cloud computing and mobile platforms. Code can be developed on a normal OS such as Linux or MacOS X, and then compiled into a fully-standalone, specialised unikernel that runs under the Xen hypervisor.
Mirage uses the OCaml language, with libraries that provide networking, storage and concurrency support that work under Unix during development, but become operating system drivers when being compiled for production deployment. The framework is fully event-driven, with no support for preemptive threading.
This repository contains an OCaml runtime used on Xen - the opam packages
For documentation, visit http://openmirage.org.
xen-posix/contains the header files to pretend a posix system (required to compile the OCaml runtime), plus minilibc and float formating -- this is the home for the
mirage-xen-posixOPAM package. Installation goes into
xen-ocaml/contains only the OCaml runtime (patches and build system), installation into
