Sxmo: Simple X Mobile

“minimal. mobile. hackable.

Sxmo is a minimalist environment for Linux mobile devices, such as the pinephone.

Simple menu-driven interface

“I really like this; I've been using this for about a week now. I appreciate the developers' willingness to design something with a slight learning curve that works very well, and in part because of this. This demonstrates a level of respect for their end users which I value. I am not saying that this mobile computing environment is hard to use, I am saying that it is highly efficient and effective, and that I have learned things by using it because the people who made this do not condescend through oversimplification.”

Everything is Scriptable

“Phone calls and text messages are routed through shell scripts, a feature I didn’t know I needed until I saw it in action. Sxmo probably is the killer app for running an actual Linux distribution on your phone.”
