NodeOS is an operating system built entirely in Javascript and managed by npm. Any package in npm is a NodeOS package, that means a selection of more than 400.000 packages. The goal of NodeOS is to provide just enough to let npm provide the rest. Since anyone can contribute to it, anyone can create NodeOS packages. NodeOS is a Node.js based operating system, built-off of the Linux kernel. Core development is being done in layers. There could be some differences to adjust better to each target platform, but the general structure is barebones custom Linux kernel with an initramfs that boots to a Node.js REPL, initramfs Initram environment to mount the users partition & boot the system, and usersfs multi-user environment with the same behaviour of traditional OSes. All the layers are bootable, leading barebones to a raw naked Node.js REPL prompt as PID 1, while initramfs exec actual NodeOS code to isolate user code from the core system.
