mini is a minimal init system. It was created mainly for educational purposes as well as wanting to know if I were able to reduce my Arch boot time. You may use it at your own risk, it is not ready for any serious use (and will probably never be :)).


  1. Clone this repo
  2. cargo build
  3. cp target/debug/mini /sbin/
  4. Create your services files if needed
  5. Edit the kernel command line and add init=/sbin/mini


To ease development, I created a Makefile that will automatically compile and deploy latest version of mini on a QEMU VM. More details to come...
