This directory contains definitions for a variety of product configurations. The products are organized into tracks that build on one another to produce a fully featured system.
A tiny system used to exercise kernel and core drivers and to bring up new boards.
“The smallest set of features we'd still call Fuchsia.” More feature-ful than bringup (implying bringup is not a full Fuchsia system).
Per RFC-0220, minimal can boot to userspace, run Component Manager and components, and update itself over a network. It has no graphics, audio, wifi, or other bread-and-butter items you'd think of in a consumer operating system.
Minimal is intended to be the basis for all production Fuchsia products, which should not subtract from its contents, only add to them.
The main uses of minimal should be:
Self-updating system with core system services, connectivity, and metrics reporting. Supports graphics.
Builds on bringup
Based on minimal. Intended to be a figurative workbench for developers working with Fuchsia. Supports graphics, media, audio, input, complex drivers like USB and WiFi, etc. This contains the features you‘d think of a production OS having, but this product configuration is not meant for production. Instead, it’s meant to be a development and testing environment.
Workbench doesn't have a session (user interface) by default, though a developer can add one at runtime using
ffx session launch.
A system with a simple graphical user interface with a command-line terminal.
Builds on core.
