Mongoose OS is an Internet of Things (IoT) Firmware Development Framework available under Apache License Version 2.0. It supports low power, connected microcontrollers such as: ESP32, ESP8266, TI CC3200, STM32.[1] Its purpose is to be a complete environment for prototyping, development and managing connected devices.

It is designed to reduce the time and costs associated with IoT projects[2] and has been the subject of numerous positive reviews.[3][4][5]


  • User friendly Over the Air (OTA) updating of embedded ICs.[6]
  • Secure connectivity and crypto support[7]
  • Integrated Mongoose Web Server
  • Programming in either JavaScript (integrated mJS engine) or C.
  • Integration with private and public clouds (e.g. AWS IoT, Mosquitto, HiveMQ etc.).


Mongoose OS is Open Source and dual-licensed:

  • Mongoose OS Community Edition - Apache License Version 2.0
  • Mongoose OS Enterprise Edition - Commercial License
