Project Information


PureFoundation is a binary-compatible clone of the Foundation framework created exclusively for Darwin using Apple's open source Objective-C 2.0 runtime, AutoZone garbage collector and CFLite library. It's primary purpose is to support the PureDarwin effort to build a fully-functional Darwin distribution, by providing the support library which certain components require.

For installation instructions, see the wiki.


PureFoundation is intended for use under Darwin only, to replicate functionality already present in OS X. Please please please do not even think about installing it on OS X. It is currently sub-alpha-class software and would cause many many bad things to happen.

Current Version

v0.0009 5/3/09 Changed memory management procedure to favour CF types, leading to large stability improvements. Built from source r10.
