I just stumbled across this project and it’s pretty neat! I have some ideas for an OS of my own, but I never wanted to write the base of it from scratch — I always wanted to build upon a base. So, I guess you could say I just want to create a custom shell for a base OS. Redox interests me because it aims to fix the shortcomings of Linux and all the unnecessary residual/legacy code still in it.
I was wondering if it was possible to start a node server on boot of Redox, that would them run my HTML5/CSS/JS shell that hooks into the system. For example, if I click on “Empty Trash” in my UI, the trash is emptied on the actual OS (Redox).
I have no idea if what I want is feasible at the moment, or on the roadmap but I hope it is! Going to sleep now, but I’ll check responses (hopefully positive) in a couple hours.
