glendix - Bringing the beauty of Plan9 to Linux
« on: October 18, 2023, 12:20:33 PM »

found this one mentioned via
There is Glendix https://www.glendix.org/, though I am pretty sure that is not updated anymore.

https://github.com/anantn/glendix/issues/1 # Update for latest kernel version
it seams there is some more recent intrest

this comment caught my attention  ???
Just so you are aware some concepts from Plan9 which have already been ported:

    bind mounts
    union mounts
    plumber via ~/.mailcap: https://www.desy.de/web/mosaic/mailcap.html
    secstore via passwordstore.org or hashicorp vault+vaultfs fuse module
    v9fs and diod (services for the 9p2000 filesystem)
    dial via netcat or socat.
    ssh [cpu(1)] and the https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/man1/rc.1.html
    faces via https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/man1/xfaces.1x.html
    ndb via https://github.com/mischief/ndb

Sadly though the native graphing and statistic reporting tools isn't well enough published. Let alone other tools have more features. So I doubt anyone will attempt a port those over to linux.

Plan9 is so much more than just Acme, rio, and plumber, e.g. the desktop environment. There is a lot of internals that one doesn't see because of how well designed the OS is with "everything is a file" much of which is just shoehorned into other Nixs from external tools.

searching the forum i found this comment extoling some of the virtues of plan9

and on a bit of a tangent recalled this "Plan 9 CPU command, in Go, for Linux"
