OpenADK - Open Source Appliance Development Kit

What is it?

A free construction kit for Embedded Linux. The resulting firmware boots up very fast, is updateable via a package manager without losing local configuration changes and the root filesystem is mounted read-only. The default configuration creates a very small linux system. The default configuration for software packages and the system is secure by default.


Get the source via following command:

git clone git://

Or via HTTP (can be used with a proxy):

git clone

Or just get a daily snapshot from here:

You can view the git repository here.


For documentation see the OpenADK manual:

Have fun...
