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.

    First of all, Cinux-Get. It's been a long time since I said that there will be a working release, but I've been caught up in life, work and studies for the past 2 years. However, I've been working on it now and then, for the past few months, and I should say that I discontinued the old architecture and code. From now on I'll be developing Cinux-Get in Vala. So far I have a Download module ready and I'm working on reading off of Xml files, which will be used to store the list of available packages. I'll try to upload the project to Github in the next few days, but it's still really-really dirty.

    The next thing I've been working on is another project I've released a couple of times and never really worked out: OpenSky UI; a web based user interface that was known as Cinux Blue and, later, as Universe UI. I have no clue as to how this is going to turn out, but I hope it's not going to go down the drain as its predecessors. However, there are a few apps I've made for it, such as Feta PDF Reader, a fork of Mozilla's pdf.js, and a Terminal Emulator.

    In time, OpenSkyUI will become a whole lot more interesting. Bellow I've attached a demo of the UI for you to play with in your browser. As you can see, it supports all kinds of screens, in this case, a cell phone's screen.


  1. Great Job! Hi, is there a way to join the development for Universe UI ? Looking forward in reading you. Please feel free ton contact me at rodrigue dot alahassa at gmail dot com.

  2. Hi, you can collaborate through Github when I set up all the repositories. At the moment I don't have another source control method.
