    You can turn off the music for slightly better performance and to hear the other sound effects better. If anyone wants to play with mouse support it is merged into the latest TinkerOS (/Apps/CF2 or just run it from the Personal Menu CTRL-m): If you want to run on TempleOS without the new mouse support you can get an ISO.C from here.

    I worked on the history system to Shrine's shell (Lsh) in 2020. Development of Shrine is stalled currently so the changes never propagated to Shrine proper.

    I would call Shrine a fairly minimalist fork, in that there's a lot built on top of TempleOS, but the core is mostly the same. A more minimalist fork is TinkerOS, which is a lot closer to stock TempleOS but with bugfixes, modern hardware support, and some software packages added.

    ZealOS is a maximalist fork, changing the core of TempleOS everywhere the authors see fit. The fork authors are in contact with each other and discuss ideas / share code occasionally.

    Lsh's repo: https://github.com/minexew/Lsh

    There are ZealOS (https://zealos.net) and TinkerOS (https://github.com/tinkeros/TinkerOS). Zenith has an old and messy codebase that is no longer maintained. I have yet to see it get any updates.

  • Sudoku for TempleOS/TinkerOS

    If you don't want to mess around with mounting additional ISO.C files, I've also added it to TinkerOS, just download TinkerOS_5.06.5.3_Plus_Sudoku.ISO and when it boots (optionally install or exit installer), hit Ctrl-m to bring up the menu, scroll down and click on the Sudoku icon.

    I've made extensive use of the documentation at templeos.holyc.xyz originally to browse the code in my spare time outside TempleOS. When I started my fork TinkerOS I made changes to allow more of the documentation to be links so you can drill down into other functions and constants by clicking on their names. Everything that is in TempleOS is also in TinkerOS so you might find the documentation here easier to use.

What are some alternatives?
