What is YouOS?

YouOS is a web operating system that lets you run diverse applications within a web browser. Small applications like sticky notes or clocks. Large applications like word processing, mp3 players, and instant messaging. Even better, it's very easy to tweak an existing application or write your own.

Why use YouOS?

  • Persist: Do some work. Log out. Log in later from another computer. It's like you never left.
  • Centralize: Manage all your web services, files, and accounts in one secure place.
  • Collaborate: Share files and apps through a simple, intuitive buddy list.
  • Customize: Install apps written by friends or write your own.

Why develop on YouOS?

  • One Language: All you need to know is javascript. No perl, python, ruby, SQL, C, etc. That's right! You can do server stuff from javascript!
  • Scale: YouOS handles the scaling of servers and bandwidth - you just need to handle the application logic and UI (and about getting paid).
  • Powerful Shared Data Structures: Need a distributed, revisioned hashtable shared by N users? You got it.
  • Sweet Interfaces: Need to send or receive email or text/instant messages? We're working on providing full communication APIs.
  • Tools: Use a free in-browser development environment with built-in source control, syntax checker, compiler, and administration.
  • Analytics: Know exactly how many people are using your apps and how they are using it.
