Oryx Linux – an embedded Linux distribution from Togán Labs, which is built on top of OpenEmbedded and the Yocto Project.

The Oryx Linux project is primarily motivated by a desire to incorporate a lightweight Linux container implementation into the OpenEmbedded build system whilst maintaining the benefits of both systems. The key word here is ‘lightweight’: we’re avoiding fully-integrated systems such as Docker which are targeted at cloud computing deployments rather than embedded deployments. Instead we’re using runc, the lightweight container runtime which sits at the heart of Docker, without any of the surrounding tools such as containered and docker itself. This gives us the flexibility to address the needs of the embedded use-case.

The first version 0.1 was released December 26, 2016.
