Awesome Open Source
Awesome Open Source EDGE is a powerful application software platform for IoT devices.

With you can rapidly build and deploy device applications that communicate with devices, sensors, actuators, cloud services, and humans. provides a web-enabled, secure, modular and extensible C++ and JavaScript IoT application environment on top of Linux, consisting of middleware, protocols and rich APIs. provides ready-to-use and industry proven software building blocks that enable applications to collect, process, filter, analyze and visualize sensor, machine and process data locally, directly where it originates, and where the action happens. enables IoT edge and fog computing. runs on Linux-based devices, including IoT gateways, industrial computing devices, and prototyping platforms like the Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone and MangOH. is based on the POCO C++ Libraries and uses the V8 JavaScript engine.

For more information, including documentation, please see the website. There are also a couple of useful articles and How-To's in the project wiki.

Build Status


  • GNU Make 3.81 or newer
  • Linux: GNU C++ (g++) 5.0 or newer; alternatively Clang++ 3.4 or newer (C++14)
  • macOS: Clang++ (Apple LLVM) 10.0 or newer
  • OpenSSL headers and libraries (on macOS, via Homebrew: brew install openssl)
  • Python 2.7 (for building V8)

Getting Started

For the impatient, using a Linux or macOS machine:

$ git clone
$ cd
$ git checkout master
$ make -s -j8 DEFAULT_TARGET=shared_release

Then, on Linux:

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd`/platform/lib/Linux/x86_64:`pwd`/server/bin/Linux/x86_64/codeCache
$ cd server
$ bin/Linux/x86_64/macchina

On macOS:

$ export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd`/platform/lib/Darwin/x86_64
$ cd server
$ bin/Darwin/x86_64/macchina

Then direct your favorite web browser to http://localhost:22080 and log in with username 'admin' and password 'admin'.

To build EDGE without JavaScript support, you can pass WITHOUT_JS=1 to make:

    $ make -s -j8 WITHOUT_JS=1 DEFAULT_TARGET=shared_release
