Shitbox is inspired by the project busybox but with a much more limited scope. While Busybox aims to be "The swiss army knife of embedded linux" you can think of shitbox as being more like "The box store multi tool of embedded linux".
All joking aside the utilities which are present function mostly as expected and the code aims to be robust. It's written in Rust, not C, for whatever that's worth. Like Busybox it is a multi-call binary which is therefore able to share code between applets, making for an overall smaller binary.
Shitbox does not aim to supply an entire system of utilities, but rather a subset of the most common Unix shell utilities. Things which are out of scope for the project include:
- Network servers
- Kernel module handling utilities
- Anything requiring suid or sgid bits such as
sudoThe code aims to be portable across Unix variants, ie Linux and BSD, but not MacOS or Windows. Development occurs on Linux, so if your OS is more exotic then YMMV.
Building is done using the official Rust toolchain. It is recommended that you install your toolchain using Rustup rather than distro packages, as old compiler versions are not supported.
cargo build --release
bootstrap applet provides facility for installing the binary, creating all
required symlinks and installing some nice to haves such as Unix man pages
and shell completions [see below].
