Build Torizon OS from Source With Yocto Project/OpenEmbedded
Torizon OS is the base operating system in which Torizon is built. It is a minimal Yocto-based embedded Linux image and, even though customers may usually stick to application development on top of containers, sometimes they may need to customize the base image for their needs.
OSTree is a library that handles updates for filesystem trees. It applies updates atomically, therefore guaranteeing the system integrity in case of a power-cut or dropped internet connectivity for instance. Different from the A/B partition mechanism of updates, OSTree works in a git-like model, providing file updates and thus saving storage space as well as connection bandwidth and allowing more than 2 software revisions on the device at the same time. In addition, some directories such as /var and /etc and handled as special cases, providing persistent configuration and user data to be preserved between updates.
