Friend is available as open source for everybody to try out, extend and built fantastic applications on.
We have used considerable amount of time on making the FriendUP APIs simple and easy to understand. That is also why we are packaging the FriendUP Developers Manual with this release. In its third draft, it will soon cover the entire 1.0.x platform.
Distributed and powerful
FriendUP aims to make the powerful emerging web technologies easy to work with. This is why we reach out to you, to help us enrich this platform with DOS drivers, modules, libraries and apps so that we can cover all of the interesting technologies out there that people use and love. In the Future, FriendUP will be to the cloud users what Linux is for machines.
Just clone this repository, run the install.sh script and follow the on screen instructions. This script should run on most modern linux distributions. Post to the Developer Community if you run into any problems here.
git clone https://github.com/FriendSoftwareLabs/friendup cd friendup/ ./install.sh
FriendUP is a large system consisting of several layers. It has a kernel core that is managing the Friend resources. This one is licensed under the MIT license. Then it has modules, DOS drivers and runtime linked libraries. These are licensed under the LGPLv3 license. Finally, we have the GUI for Friend - the Friend Workspace. This is licensed under the AGPLv3 license.
For those that just want to test the Friend Workspace, you can try our demo.
You can populate the Workspace with more apps, games and demonstrations in the Software Catalog.
