Project description

PyOS Py-OS version

An OS that runs a subset of the 6502 opcodes, implemented in python.


This is a python port of a Typescript OS I created for the Fall 2018 Operating Systems class. The Base OS for that class was provided and can be found here. A direct port of the Base OS in python can be found under releases as version 1.0.0


To run the OS it must be installed. It can be installed either from pypi or from the source code of the directory.

From PyPi

Simply use pip to install the latest release of the PyOS. To do so run pip install PyOS.

From Source

Either in a Python Virtual Environment or just on your machine in the root of the directory run make install this will install the PyOS from the source code in the repo using the file. If you would like to uninstall simply run make uninstall


To run the OS run, python3 -m PyOS


1.0.0 - Base OS


To develop the PyOS it would be a nuisance to install each time a change is made, to avoid this use a python virtual environment. To create a Virtual environment or venv use the following command python3 -m venv/path/to/new/virtual/environment The path should be pointed at this repository. To enter a venv that already exists navigate to the bin dir inside of env and run source activate. In the case of this repo the command would look like this, source ./env/bin/activate.

Once in a venv to run the PyOS without installing use the following format: python3 PyOS /path/to/source/file while in the root of the directory.


Coming Soon...

Publishing to PyPi

To publish the latest release of the build to pypi run the following recipe: make release. This will test, build and publish the release to pypi.
