OSNews, Generic OSes Contiki is a lightweight open source operating system designed for the 'Internet of Things': Networked, low-power embedded devices. It's been used for smart grids, smart streetlights, badger tracking systems and connecting a Gameboy to the Internet. Computerworld Australia recently caught up with its creator, Adam Dunkels, to talk about the system's history and future plans, as well as a new company he's founded, Thingsqure, which hopes to make creating applications for the Internet of Things as easy as creating apps for smartphones.

...is that it has sucked in uIP, which the author no longer offers as a standalone package.


whilst your gripes are completely valid. If anyone felt like maintaining uIP separately, they would.

As the author is invested in Contiki, he obviously wants to reduce his burden maintenance by keeping the two separate.
