What is libosinfo?



libosinfo is a GObject based library API for managing information about

operating systems, hypervisors and the (virtual) hardware devices they can

support. It includes a database containing device metadata and provides APIs

to match/identify optimal devices for deploying an operating system on a

hypervisor. Via the magic of GObject Introspection, the API is available in all

common programming languages with demos for javascript (GJS/Seed) and python

(PyGObject). Also provided are Vala bindings.


libosinfo is Free Software and licenced under LGPLv2+.





- Required:

- gobject-2.0

- gio-2.0

- libxml-2.0


- Optional:

- gobject-introspection

- Vala (build-time only)
