I'd like to introduce a new, open source command line utility for packaging, managing, and running BasiliskII "VMs": https://github.com/morgant/basiliskiivm.

While I haven't officially released the first version yet, it currently supports the following features:

  • Running a .BasiliskIIVM (BasiliskII prefs, ROM, disks, and keyboard file packaged into a single directory)
  • Creating multiple snapshots of disks
  • Some general info/management

There are additional features coming, but there's not much left to implement. It's written in Bash, so should be portable across multiple versions of Mac OS X/OS X/macOS, plus various Linux/BSD/UNIX OSes. The .BasiliskIIVM package format is intended to be easily transferable and portable across OSes.

I have to admit that I wasn't aware of Medusa when I tossed this together today, but I do like having scriptable command line utilities.

I haven't added many of the planned features over the past year, mainly because it's fitting my needs for now. I'm happy to pick up work on it if others are interested.

In the meantime, I added a minor version bump (0.1.1) yesterday w/the addition of automatic searching of /Applications & ~/Applications for the BasiliskII binary on OS X/macOS.

That's a fancy bash script. TBH, I'd love to see a fancy UI as well. :eek:

Thanks. I agree, I should probably reach out to the Medusa developer to see if we can standardize the container format and support it with both (command line & GUI).
