HoustyOS

Welcome!

I'd recommend a 1920x1080 screen resolution for this but anything over 1280x768 should work. It won't work properly on mobile devices for now as you won't be able to drag or resize the windows. You should be able to open, maximise and close windows though.

I've created this website for a few reasons:

  • To showcase a few things I've done over the years.
  • A place to store various documents I've written for reference, written in Markdown in my Knowledge Base.
  • Because I wanted to!

I started this site in 2015 and over the last few years my knowledge of HTML, CSS, JQuery & JQueryUI has grown allowing me to do what I wanted to do now. Therefore I have started working on it again in 2021!

It's built to imitate my favourite operating system, Acorn's RISC OS.

NOTE: The scrollbars only look correct on desktop WebKit browsers for now, ie. Chrome, Safari

Opens an about box for 'Housty OS', this homage to Acorn RISC OS.
Opens this Welcome window.
Opens a window with various 'documents' containing info about me.
Opens a window with various bits & pieces.
Opens a filer window with various 'applications' including my knowledge base.

Click on an application for it to appear in the Taskbar, then click on the taskbar icon to open the main window of the application.
