The GUI is definitely one the weaker parts of OmniOS.

Currently working on pipes. Perfecting them.

I've big problems with the f**king textutils cause of the global term.
Do you have the same problem with windows?
I thought on two solutions:
1. Loading the API for every program again and again
2. redirecting term, by switching between programs

I have encountered no such issues until now.

Could you explain what happens exactly. And I don't use textutils.

Just got the pipes to work perfectly. Now some more work into the shell.

I wanna implement this feature:

list >> target.txt

How is that called?

It's a form of piping.

Why do you don't use the pipe letter '|'.
Also, Lua 5.3 has the fetaures >>, to compare two numbers bitwise.

The pipe letter is for sending from one process to another, the >> is for sending to a file.

Current I use

list OmniOS | tac out.txt

tac is the opposite of cat (DamHydraz will kill me) and cat reads a file.

Have you checked out lsh's pipe system? I think my previous post suggesting it got eaten a while back. It's got piping set up in accordance with sensible Lua idioms. The io functions are really the way to go for pipes.

I definitely remember the post :) And yes, I'll check it out.

Thanks a lot! I'm really trying to make it have a lot of features that actually work.

Instead of calling it "tac" which is "cat" reversed I would call it dog. (A) Dog is just superior. :D

Hey guys,

after some heavy debugging during the last week I am rolling out a new minor version. "Why minor?" you ask. Well, this version does not add a ton of new features. It rather improves on the existing ones, and mainly fixes bugs and other annoying issues.

1.1.0 Update (Codename 16w40a)

New features:
  • Shell piping works somewhat decently
  • It boots (It doesn't always.)
  • Event redirection (One process passes all the events it receive to a child process. A child process is any process that was created by a given process and of which it has the handle.)
  • reduced it's size drastically by removing useless crap from it. It now has the glorious size of 483KB. I could shrink it if I wanted.
  • It logs stuff so that you can debug. Mainly for myself.
  • All those linux bins in /bin. Some of the work.

Planned features in future versions:
  • I really want to improve the installer
  • Inter-process-communication
  • Devices, like random or tty (Can someone explain what tty is exactly and how it works?)
  • Separates windows from processes, which makes visible output redirection easier.

AFAIK are ttys like multiple "instances" of the linux term (this is not very accurate but kinda is like that).
One thing I noticed, is that many distros boot their DE in tty8 (ctrl + alt + f(nmbr) to switch to another tty) and the others are basically terminals without having X booted.

Correct me if I'm wrong..

EDIT:
Wrote boot wrong 2 times .. it's really cold out here
Can't move my fingers lol

I just updated the installer.

Features:
  • Less ugly
  • Can select version
  • Can choose whether to boot on startup

Also, I had some issues with piping and window drawing. Turns out it was a pretty stupid mistake, which Exerro helped me find. So he gets some credit for that. :)

There's a few things I got working today:
  • ramFS: this means that true temporary files are now possible. They are also blazing fast.
  • devFS: the filesystem itself is only setup to map peripherals for now, but the plan is have the device files too. The first one would be operational: dev/zero.

You can simplify the if statements (maybe it decrease your performance, idk):
if mode:match '^[aw]b?$' then
