GalaxyOS
« on: April 15, 2011, 08:52:47 pm »
This is a project i've been working on, GalaxyOS.. It's a simple ease-of-use program that looks like an OS.
Screenshots and everything you need attached.

Gonna work on it a bit more before putting it on TIcalc.org, and I know it's big, but it's not very optimized yet, just for ease of editing

So it's kinda more like a shell or program to do various stuff? I personally like the GUI where you type stuff. Does it let you run other BASIC programs?

Also as suggestion, on ticalc I would advise against calling it an OS, because some people tend to get pissed off when fake OSes are called like that and it can be misleading too (many people think MirageOS is an OS, for example, rather than a shell).
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Nope, it just runs the 'apps' that I built in, and I'm working on adding in more. It's only an OS in the sense that it's designed to be run on startup, and then in theory you never need to quit it, for standard calculator-type things. It was mainly a program just to see how well I could make a GUI..

I personally don't run it on startup, I just run a program with only the login part, because you can put in the number of users and each one has a unique password, so my friends and I all have an account on it. When you log in, it just goes to the standard homescreen. I might upload that version soon.

Is it actually possible to make it run BASIC programs? That'd be really neat.

Aah ok. I think it's good for practicing and stuff. And being able to run it on startup can be good for those who like that type of GUI.

I was merely saying because on ticalc.org such program got a bad reputation because there are like thousands of Windows clones, and they made it hard to find anything for development back when their archives was just one single directory for regular programs.

Anyway to run BASIC programs you need some ASM libraries like XCOPY and Program tools. I forgot where was located the last one, though. It grabbed a list of all programs stored on the calculator and could be useful to create basic shells.

Nice shell!  I like it, it looks very nice already!

I don't think that it is a shell:

But it's still pretty cool, I like the password input!

Well, it technically is still shell because it is above a normal program, and below an OS -- even if it is written in basic and not ASM. ;)

I think the fast rendering graphics and the users are the nicest touch -- great job overall Greg!  Bravo!

Nice! It looks very responsive for BASIC! Great GUI graphics, too. :D

Are there any plans to make it possible to program applications for Galaxy?

Wow I like the logarithm calculator! It always annoyed me that the TI-OS doesnt have this function.

Theoretically it isn't a shell Ashbad.
