    Lightweight operating system using Node.js as userspace

    This comment seems correct. No commits in years [0], but more telling is issue #441 [1]:

    >* Q: Is nodeOS an abandonned project?*

    >* A: Unluckily, sort of. I've tried sometimes to retake it, but work has absorved me so much that don't have time to engage on long-term side projects, and size of NodeOS itself give me a lot of respect. Obviously this has not been the only problem, I failed to communicate and delegate some work to the community, although they were willing to do so. If only I could get some extra motivation to retake it, like some funds or something, or at least to focus myself on the project and get over to my fears... :-/ *

    So, it seems that it's stalled and with some love it might be able to be resurrected. But even the issue report is over 1 year old.



  • Visual Studio Code

    Visual Studio Code

    There's very little native code in VS code: It's all typescript, even the main editor component monaco. You might be thinking of the atom editor which tried to do more native code for speed of editing but AFAIK atom has kind of been shelved and not developed anymore.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
