OpenAtom OpenHarmony, or abbreviated as OpenHarmony (OHOS), is a family of open-source operating systems based on HarmonyOS derived from LiteOS, donated the L0-L2 branch source code by Huawei to the OpenAtom Foundation. Similar to HarmonyOS, the open-source distributed operating system is designed with a layered architecture, which consists of four layers from the bottom to the top, i.e., the kernel layer, system service layer, framework layer, and application layer.[4][5]

OpenHarmony supports various devices running a mini system such as printers, speakers, smartwatches and any other smart device with memory as small as 128 KB, or running a standard system with memory greater than 128 MB.[6]

The system contains the basic and some advanced capabilities of HarmonyOS.[7]

The operating system oriented for the IoT and Embedded devices market with diverse range of devices support from smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, smart watches, personal computers and other smart devices.[8]

History[edit]

The first version of OpenHarmony was launched by the OpenAtom Foundation on September 10, 2020, after receiving a donation of the open-source code from Huawei.[9]

The OpenHarmony 2.0 (Canary version) was launched in June 2021, supporting a variety of smart terminal devices.[9]

Based on its earlier version, OpenAtom Foundation launched OpenHarmony 3.0 on September 30, 2021, and brought substantial improvements over the past version to optimize the operating system.[10]

A release of OpenHarmony supporting devices with up to 4 GB RAM was made available in April 2021.[11]

OpenAtom Foundation added a UniProton kernel, a hardware-based real-time operating system, into its repo as part of the Kernel subsystem of the OpenHarmony operating system on August 10, 2022.[12]

Development[edit]

The primary IDE known as DevEco Studio to build OpenHarmony applications with OpenHarmony SDK full development kit that includes a comprehensive set of development tools, including a debugger, tester system via DevEco Testing, warehouse software libraries for software development, a embedded device emulator, previewer, documentation, sample code, and tutorials. Applications for OpenHarmony are mostly built using components of ArkUI, a Declarative User Interface framework. ArkUI elements are adaptable to various custom open-source hardware and industry hardware devices and include new interface rules with automatic updates along with HarmonyOS updates.[13]

Hardware development is developed using DevEco Studio via DevEco Device tool for building on OpenHarmony, also creating distros with operating system development with toolchains provided, including verification certification processes for the platform, as well as customising the operating system as an open source variant compared to original closed distro variant HarmonyOS that primarily focus on HarmonyOS Connect partners with Huawei.[14][15]

OpenHarmony Application Binary Interface (ABI) ensures compatibility across various OpenHarmony powered devices with diverse set of chipset instruction set platforms.[16]

HDC (OpenHarmony Device Connector) is a command-line tool tailored for developers working with OpenHarmony devices. The BM command tool component of HDC tool is used to facilitate debugging by developers. After entering in the HDC shell command, the BM tool can be utilised.[17][18]

Like HarmonyOS, OpenHarmony uses App Pack files suffixed with .app, also known as APP files on AppGallery and third party distribution application stores on OpenHarmony-based and non-OpenHarmony operating systems such as Linux-based Unity Operating System which is beneficial for interoperability and compatibility. Each App Pack has one or more HarmonyOS Ability Packages (HAP) containing code for their abilities, resources, libraries, and a JSON file with configuration information.[19]

While incorporating the OpenHarmony layer for running the APP files developed based on HarmonyOS APIs, the operating system utilizes the main Linux kernel for bigger memory devices, as well as the RTOS-based LiteOS kernel for smaller memory-constrained devices, as well as add-ons, custom kernels in distros in the Kernel Abstract Layer (KAL) subsystem that is not kernel dependent nor instruction set dependent. For webview applications, it incorporates ArkWeb browser engine as of API 11 release at system level for security replacing Chromium Embedded Framework nweb software engine that facilitated Blink-based Chromium in API 5.[20]

Unlike with open-source Android operating system with countless third-party dependency packages repeatedly built into the apps at a disadvantage when it comes to fragmentation. The OpenHarmony central warehouse with the Special Interest Group at OpenAtom governance provides commonly used third-party public warehouses for developers in the open-source environment which brings greater interoperability and compatibility with OpenHarmony-based operating systems. Apps does not require repeated built-in third-party dependencies, such as Chromium, Unity and Unreal Engine. This can greatly reduce the system ROM volume.[21]

Harmony Distributed File System (HMDFS) is a distributed file system designed for large-scale data storage and processing that is also used in openEuler. It is inspired by the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). The file system suitable for scenarios where large-scale data storage and processing are essential, such as IoT applications, edge computing, and cloud services.[22] On Orange Pi OS (OHOS), the native file system shows LOCAL and shared_disk via OpenHarmony's Distributed File System (HMDFS) File path/root folder for the file system uses ">" instead of traditional "\" in Unix/Linux/Unix-like and "/" on Windows with its DLL (Dynamic-link library) system.

Access token manager is an essential component in OpenHarmony-based operating systems, responsible for unified app permission management based on access tokens. Access tokens serve as identifiers for apps, containing information such as app ID, user ID, app privilege level (APL), and app permissions. By default, apps can access limited system resources. ATM ensures controlled access to sensitive functionalities.[23]

OpenHarmony kernel abstract layer employs the musl libc library and native APIs, providing support for the Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX) for Linux syscalls within the Linux kernel side and LiteOS kernel that is the inherent part of the original LiteOS design in POSIX API compatibility.[24] Developers and vendors can create components and applications that work on the kernel based on POSIX standards.[25]

OpenHarmony NDK is a toolset that enables developers to incorporate C and C++ code into their applications. Specifically, in the case of OpenHarmony, the NDK serves as a bridge between the native world (C/C++) and the OpenHarmony ecosystem.[26]

This NAPI method is a vital importance of open source community of individual developers, companies and non-profit organisations of stakeholders in manufacturers creating third party libraries for interoperability and compatibility on the operating system native open source and commercial applications development from third party developers between southbound and northbound interface development of richer APIs, e.g. third party Node.js, Simple DirectMedia Layer, Qt framework, LLVM compiler, FFmpeg etc.[27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34]

Also, vendors built operating systems on top of OpenHarmony itself as well as OpenHarmony-based Oniro OS can build and integrate their new or existing custom kernels to their open and commercial distributions of software stack outside the two default kernels of the Multikernel architecture such as Huawei's HarmonyOS NEXT iteration of HarmonyOS as addons on OpenHarmony whether individual distros supports multiple custom kernels or one custom kernel or one from the default kernels chosen, providing vendors flexibility in its architecture design in the kernel abstract layer architecture abstracting differences preserving system layer functions from apps, DSoftBus localised device transmission functionalities to drivers.[35]

HarmonyOS NEXT[edit]

HarmonyOS NEXT Architecture

Huawei officially announced the commercial proprietary HarmonyOS NEXT, microkernel-based core distributed operating system for HarmonyOS at Huawei Developer Conference 2023 (HDC) on August 4, 2023, which supports only native APP apps via Ark Compiler with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) Core support. Based on modified OpenHarmony and Oniro OS. HarmonyOS NEXT has the HarmonyOS microkernel at its core and it has no apk compatibility support.[90]

In the long term, as the company builds up the software root in downstream development for both domestic Chinese and global markets, the closed HarmonyOS NEXT customised L0-L2 full branch source code of the OpenHarmony operating system is aimed to replace the current closed-source L3-L5 branch since OpenHarmony 2.2 fork branch with 8GB worth of code up to 4.x with 60% codebase designed with a dual-frame architecture that is compatible with Android with EMUI userland in the multikernel architecture of HarmonyOS from current Linux kernel on phones and tablets, cars, TVs and advanced wearables, alongside lightweight LiteOS kernel on basic wearables and various IoT smart devices. On the same day at HDC 2023, the developer preview version of HarmonyOS NEXT was opened for cooperating enterprise developers to build and test native mobile apps. It will be open to all developers in the first quarter of 2024 according to the official announcement.[91][92][93]

On 18 January 2024, Huawei announced HarmonyOS NEXT Galaxy stable rollout will begin in Q4 2024 based on OpenHarmony 5.0 (API 12) version after OpenHarmony 4.1 (API 11) based Q2 Developer Beta after release of public developer access of HarmonyOS NEXT Developer Preview 1 that has been in the hands of closed cooperative developers partners since August 2023 debut. The new system of HarmonyOS 5 version will replace current HarmonyOS system for commercial Huawei consumer devices that can only run native HarmonyOS apps built for HarmonyOS and OpenHarmony as well as localsation using Oniro OS for downstream development at global level.[94]

Relationship with OpenEuler[edit]

In terms of architecture, OpenHarmony alongside HarmonyOS has close relationship with server-based Multikernel operating system OpenEuler, which is a community edition of EulerOS, as they have implemented the sharing of kernel technology as revealed by Deng Taihua, President of Huawei's Computing Product Line.[95] The sharing is reportedly to be strengthened in the future in the areas of the distributed software bus, system security, device driver framework and new programming language.[96]

Harmony Distributed File System (HMDFS) is a distributed file system designed for large-scale data storage and processing that is also used in openEuler server operating system.
