The goal of this project is to build a 64-bit POSIX-compliant tick-less kernel with a Linux-compatible syscall implementation using Go.

This project is not about building yet another OS but rather exists to serve as proof that Go is indeed a suitable tool for writing low level code that runs at ring-0.

Note: This project is still in the early stages of development and is not yet in a usable state. In fact, if you build the ISO and boot it, the kernel will eventually panic with a Kmain returned error.

To find out more about the current project status and feature roadmap take a look at the status page.

Building and running gopher-os

TLDR version: make run-qemu or make run-vbox.

A detailed guide about building, running and debugging gopher-os on Linux/OSX as well as the list of supported boot command line options are available here.
