Pyrois is a “distro in a box” in the making.

9000 Foot View: How Pyrois Works 

Makefile-driven, Pyrois downloads and compiles our tool, Rex, onto it, and then uses a Rex project to compile a chroot using a cross-compiler.  From within that chroot, Rex then compiles all items in the chroot with everything you need for a Linux system. Pyrois will eventually fork to spawn another project, called Foster, which will preserve that process while it evolves to generate an installer image for a binary package system as part of the genesis of a new Linux Distribution.

As Rex is json-driven, this allows “checkbox” style user interfaces to the build steps, allowing almost limitless customization of the Linux distribution that is created by Pyrois. This will allow you to create very, very small Linux images for specialized use cases.

Pyrois is largely curses dialog-driven and is eager to onboard contributors.

Pyrois is the component that will create Dark Horse Linux.
