Sailfish OS - Mobile Operating System

  •        1490

Sailfish OS is a mobile operating system built on top of Mer project and Qt5. The UI is built with QML and QtQuick2 and Wayland. It is compatible with Android.

The Sailfish OS architecture is primarily made up of three areas — the base kernel layer, the middleware layer and the app/UI layer:
In the base layer, Sailfish OS uses a Linux kernel with hardware-specific additions. Hardware support is implemented by the Board Support Package (BSP) and Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) and is project-specific, and is typically kept private for commercial ports.

In the middleware layer, Mer provides the core system components for building services above the hardware and kernel level. Android emulation is provided by libhybris, which bridges Linux libraries based on GNU C with those based on Bionic, such as Android.

The Qt C++ application development framework provides the primary development libraries. Aside from the main Qt modules, Sailfish OS uses add-on modules such as Qt Maps, Qt Sensors and Qt Contacts. Also, all Sailfish applications are written with QML, a Qt technology for easily building user interfaces into C++ applications.

  •    PHP

The Universal Device Detection library that parses User Agents and detects devices (desktop, tablet, mobile, tv, cars, console, etc.), clients (browsers, feed readers, media players, PIMs, ...), operating systems, brands and models. Instead of using the full power of DeviceDetector it might in some cases be better to use only specific parsers. If you aim to check if a given useragent is a bot and don't require any of the other information, you can directly use the bot parser.

redox - Redox: A Rust Operating System

  •    Shell

Redox is an operating system written in Rust, a language with focus on safety and high performance. Redox, following the microkernel design, aims to be secure, usable, and free. Redox is inspired by previous kernels and operating systems, such as SeL4, MINIX, Plan 9, and BSD. Redox is not just a kernel, it's a full-featured Operating System, providing packages (memory allocator, file system, display manager, core utilities, etc.) that together make up a functional and convenient operating system. You can loosely think of it as the GNU or BSD ecosystem, but in a memory safe language and with modern technology. See this list for overview of the ecosystem.

jsprime - a javascript static security analysis tool

  •    Javascript

Today, more and more developers are switching to JavaScript as their first choice of language. The reason is simple JavaScript has now been started to be accepted as the mainstream programming for applications, be it on the web or on the mobile; be it on client-side, be it on the server side. JavaScript flexibility and its loose typing is friendly to developers to create rich applications at an unbelievable speed. Major advancements in the performance of JavaScript interpreters, in recent days, have almost eliminated the question of scalability and throughput from many organizations. So the point is JavaScript is now a really important and powerful language we have today and it's usage growing everyday. From client-side code in web applications it grew to server-side through Node.JS and it's now supported as proper language to write applications on major mobile operating system platforms like Windows 8 apps and the upcoming Firefox OS apps. But the problem is, many developers practice insecure coding which leads to many client side attacks, out of which DOM XSS is the most infamous. We tried to understand the root cause of this problem and figured out is that there are not enough practically usable tools that can solve real-world problems. Hence as our first attempt towards solving this problem, we want to talk about JSPrime: A JavaScript static analysis tool for the rest of us. It's a very light-weight and very easy to use point-and-click tool! The static analysis tool is based on the very popular Esprima ECMAScript parser by Aria Hidayat.
