SandboxOS

SandboxOS is a program that aims to securely host pure JavaScript web applications.

Goals

  1. Make it easy to run all sorts of servers and web applications.
  2. Provide a security model that is easy to understand and protects your data.
  3. Make creating and sharing web applications accessible to anyone from a web interface.

Building

SandboxOS is routinely built on Linux, Windows, and OS X.

  1. Get and build Google V8 (latest 3.30).
  2. Get and build libuv (latest 1.0).
  3. Run:
scons uv=path/to/libuv v8=path/to/v8

Running

Running the built sandbox executable will start a web server. This is a good starting point: http://localhost:12345/tasks.

To grant users administrator privileges, create a JSON file named data/auth/permissions.js containing a list of users and their permissions, like this:

{
  "cory": ["administrator"]
}

This is a work in progress. Everything else can be managed entirely from the web interface.
