Bootstrap post-collapse technology
Collapse OS is a Forth operating system and a collection of tools and documentation with a single purpose: preserve the ability to program micro- controllers through civilizational collapse.
It it designed to:
Additionally, the goal of this project is to be as self-contained as possible. With a copy of this project, a capable and creative person should be able to manage to build and install Collapse OS without external resources (i.e. internet) on a machine of her design, built from scavenged parts with low-tech tools.
Usage documentation is in-system, so access to documentation requires you to run Collapse OS. Fortunately, doing so in an emulator is easy.
/emul/README.md for getting an emulated system running.
0 LIST for an introduction, follow instructions from there.
blk: Collapse OS filesystem's content. That's actually where Collapse OS’ source code is located. Everything else is peripheral.
recipes: collection of recipes that assemble Collapse OS on a specific machine.
tools: Tools for working with Collapse OS from “modern” environments. For example, tools for facilitating data upload to a Collapse OS machine through a serial port.
emul: Tools for running Collapse OS in an emulated environment.
tests: Automated test suite for the whole project.
The project unfinished but is progressing well! See Collapse OS’ website for more information.
The Forth-based Collapse OS is the second incarnation of the concept. The first
one was entirely written in z80 assembly. If you're interested in that
incarnation, checkout the
