There were also messages during the period that Fuchsia OS will support Java and JavaScript languages.

Google Chromium engineer Guo Yang has posted on TwitterRecruitment Node.js EngineerThe message indicates that Node.js will be ported to Google's new operating system, Fuchsia.


The Google team hopes to add support for JavaScript in Fuchsia. In response, some speculate that porting Electron to Fuchsia is the first step, which is a unique advantage for potential desktop users; it can also create applications for IoT devices.

On the other hand, some people think that if Fuchsia can provide deep support for the JavaScript language, the development of related applications will become easier.


In the code submitted by the Android project (AOSP)There are also developers who have found officially submitted code for handling Fuchsia and Android compatibility with Libcore. Libcore is the foundation for Android to use Java. According to the submission record, a large part of Libcore has increased compatibility with Fuchsia, called 'ojluni', representing OpenJDK Lang, Util, Net, IO, which are the four basic parts of implementing Java using open source OpenJDK. This also seems to mean that Fuchsia will eventually run Java code.

In this regard, some people think that this should be the follow-up work to introduce the Android runtime to Fuchsia, but it may also be Google's efforts to run Java on the new operating system.

So for this mysterious operating system, everyone is still very surprised:Will Fuchsia OS replace Android or Chrome OS?Because the foreign media Bloomberg has reportedThe operating system that Google quietly developed, Fuchsia may replace Android and Chrome OS within 5 years. Although a Google spokesperson later rumored and stated that Fuchsia was only one of Google's many experimental open source projects, it declined to comment further.

At this year's Google I/O Developers Conference, Fuchsia OS's mysterious image, Hiroshi Lockheimer, who is responsible for Android and Chrome, publicly revealed some details about Fuchsia OS and explained the intent of Fuchsia OS:

Instead of wanting to be a new Android or Chrome OS, try to introduce the latest technology in Fuchsia OS and integrate the knowledge gained on this project into other products.

He pointed out that Fuchsia OS is still experimenting with optimization for devices of different sizes, suggesting that it may be used for smart home devices, wearable devices, and even augmented reality or virtual reality devices. According to him, you don't have to limit the use of Fuchsia OS toMobile phone.

Hiroshi also said that in the IoT world, more and more devices require different operating systems and runtimes. He believes that there are multiple operating system coexistence spaces. These operating systems have different strengths and features, and Fuchsia is exactly one of them.
