Collapse OS is a Forth-based operating system and a collection of tools and documentation with a single purpose: preserve the ability to program microcontrollers through civilizational collapse. It is designed to:

  • Run on minimal and improvised machines.
  • Interface through improvised means (serial, keyboard, display).
  • Edit text and binary contents.
  • Compile assembler source for a wide range of MCUs and CPUs.
  • Read and write from a wide range of storage devices.
  • Assemble itself and deploy to another machine.

Collapse OS was also ported to the UXN virtual machine.

Dusk OS will be a similar OS geared at more powerful devices and aimed at general-purpose post-collapse uses.
