[concept] Modular kernel

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/osdev

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Rhai

    Rhai - An embedded scripting language for Rust.

    The OS would be built in Rust and the module system could be made using ELF executibles (fast, but it could be really hard to implement modules to communicate with the kernel), WASM (can compile from many languages, slower but not too slow, APIs can be simple enough to implement if the correct VM is choses) or even a custom scripting language like rhai (slower, but best way for the implementation [way to connect modules and kernel]).

  • Theseus

    Theseus is a modern OS written from scratch in Rust that explores ๐ข๐ง๐ญ๐ซ๐š๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐ ๐ฎ๐š๐ฅ ๐๐ž๐ฌ๐ข๐ ๐ง: closing the semantic gap between compiler and hardware to maximally leverage the power of language safety and thus shift OS responsibilities like resource management into the compiler.

    Not to rain on your parade, but you've essentially just described Theseus OS.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.
