TEKlib is a games operating system and cross-development SDK for games.
TEKlib is an open-source library and operating system effort under the terms of the free MIT software license. This project has a many of facets; it is a
virtual operating system that runs hosted on platforms such as Linux, Windows, BSD and MorphOS,
freestanding operating system on architectures such as the Playstation 2, where it runs on a thin layer of ROM calls,
middleware providing a constistent interface across all hosting environments,
component library in that it is not strictly limited to OS services,
development platform that comes with a cross-platform build system and documentation tools.
TEKlib was started around the year 1999 out of frustration from the ended lifecycle of the AmigaOS and the lack of a worthy successor for its most basic principle, excellence by simplicity. Today, TEKlib is a virtual operating system, distributed over a set of portable libraries. You can use it as your sole environment on the Playstation 2 (provided that you are hardcore enough); most people however will use it as a development platform under Linux or Windows.
By picking from its facilities, it can serve as
a games operating system and cross-development SDK for games and everything multimedia,
a hosting environment for libraries that depend on non-trivial features like plugins and threads, striving for portability and durability,
a virtual OS target as a backend for applications that would have to be ported to many individual hosts,
a toolkit to provide an extensible virtual filesystem,
an ubiquitous component architecture that allows plugins and their host to compile from the same source on all platforms,
a small and powerful replacement for standard C libraries in embedded applications.
TEKlib is both an architecture and component library. In short, it can be embedded into any kind of library and application, and conversely, any kind of library and application can be based on TEKlib.
