Update: OpenSky UI and a future Cinux Release

No comments:
It has been a while since the last post, and since then a lot has changed. I had a good reason for being a "stranger" though; work, studies and many projects (one of which is Zhong) are pretty much holding me down.

The bottom line is that the project is still alive and moving forward. Cinux 2.2 build 998 is, already, in a very good shape: The Linux kernel is fairly current (it will be updated) and the core is also stable but mildly outdated, but way-way better than Ubuntu, for that matter. Everything else comes second.

As promised, I will slowly start posting the source code of OpenSky UI to Cinux's Github page, and most of it will be in web technologies. OpenSky UI, for example, as stated in a previous post, will be completely web based. Though, I haven't figured out what the platform will be of development will be. I have the option to either build my own WebKit based headless browser to host the project or use Node-Webkit.

Either way, you are welcome to browse through the code, comment and make pull requests.

Video: Cinux 2.2 Running on systemd

   So, these past few days I've been playing around with several options and software. The latest experiment is this: Cinux 2.2 running on systemd. It's surprisingly and amazingly fast: It boots up in just 5 seconds and you can boot it up and turn it back off in just 14 seconds. I made a video of it running through Virtual Box 4.3.

Release: Toolchain Builder

1 comment:
Hey guys, almost two days ago I completed the Toolchain Builder for Cinux. It's a set of scripts that automate the process of building the toolchain necessary to build the actual operating system (Cinux).

The project is hosted, as all other, on Github, where you can fork, contribute and submit issues.

Updates: A Demo And Some News

    Hey guys, for a while now I've been working on several projects related to Cinux and Cinux itself. In fact, yesterday I released an update to Cinux 2.2 (getting closer to the one thousandth build!). Right now I'd like to take it a step further and reveal what other stuff I've been working on.

Release: Cinux 2.2 Build 998

Build 998 of Cinux 2.2 was just released and is available to download. Minor changes were made, including the addition of ALSA and a Linux kernel upgrade to version 3.11.4.

Also, the website is undergoing some changes, as you might have noticed. I switched to Disqus for handling the comments and I'm working on a new look.

HTML5 is the future

No comments:
    A few days ago I posted an article entitled "Soon..." on mycinux, and that because I have been adding HTML5 and JavaScript into Cinux.
    Why? Well, HTML5 is the future and more people know how to code in HTML rather than in C/C++, Vala or any other cool (to me at least) language that supports Linux. Also, Gtk and even Qt will not only limit you (in terms of design) when you are creating an app, but it will also consume a significant amount of energy and computational resources, whereas well written HTML and JavaScript code won't, or at least it will do less.
