Abacus App Builder: Build API mashup apps that run on Abacus OS, iOS and Android. Abacus OS II will also allow you to build apps for Blackberry, Windows Phone 8 and Desktop via Adobe Air. Apps require little or no coding.
Use our lightning-fast microserver operating system that runs on Raspberry Pi, among our higher specification System-On-a-Chip microserver devices. Abacus OS is a full operating system capable of running Abacus Apps, and eventually Java Apps as well.
Build a server infrastructure that is cheaper and greener than comparable cloud deployments using Abacus Microservers running Abacus OS.
We've launched our own OS with a language that is void of logic.
Without logic, creativity comes alive. An Abacus OS microserver is a smart little computer. With Abacus OS you can make many types of useful apps with or without code. Not only regular data driven apps, but also IoT connected apps. Because we integrate with any API, the connections to many IoT protocols becomes quite simple.
Use an Abacus OS microserver and be creative.
We support more than 8,000 popular APIs on Programmable Web.
That's more APIs than IFTTT and Zapier combined! And with us, you can make apps. Our tools are just as simple as the aforementioned API automation tools. Apps, a computer and tons of APIs. Abacus OS is infinitely useful.
• Get your next API project up and running quickly
• Communicate development progress through app demonstration
• Quickly test platform capabilities
• Instantly prove your product concepts
• Do more during a hack-a-thon
• Focus on learning APIs instead of writing code
• Have fun building software
• Supports most IoT protocols (Zigbee, Zwave, AMQP)
Using Abacus OS, APIs are submitted via a simple browser-based form and apps can be created using a set of dropdown menus. You don't have to write code and you can iterate many app combinations instantly.
For example in future iterations of NML (Natural Machine Language) AKA, our answer to simple code, you could have an app that is coded like this:
Once an API integration has been submitted you can then share your integration with all users of Abacus OS. APIs only have to be integrated once to be mashed up and into many types of apps.
With Abacus OS developers can create mobile applications between cloud services and local devices. API integration is done without code. Instead, we have an API form for integrating any API.
Abacus OS II is the next planned release of our operating system and will allow anyone to connect any home appliance or electronic device with an API to their phone via an app. When complete Abacus OS II will be the world's first commerical Operating System for the Internet of Things! (IoT)
Abacus OS II features:
You might be saying to yourself "What's the point of a device?" We've been testing Microcomputers with Abacus OS installed. These devices are AMAZING.
Clickslide’s Abacus microserver is an application server that fits in the palm of your hand. We are delivering Abacus OS to you via our first generation of microservers. These tiny computers demonstrate Clickslide's dedication to a cleaner cloud. We have named them the Abacus Pi (Raspberry Pi), the Abacus Square (Rockchip RK3066) and the Abacus Cube (Rockchip RK3188 or Samsung Exynos 4412) we will decide on and announce here on Kickstarter which manufacturing partner of SoCs we will use before we place our first manufacturing orders.
How much does it cost?
The more we sell, the more we'll include!
We want to be part of a “clean cloud” initiative. Efficient energy consumption in the wireless cloud space is a real and serious concern for us all. At Clickslide, we are using energy efficient microservers, and not just investing in renewables to have a higher green rating.
Our power consumption is at most 5-12w per microserver.
We have been developing this project for over a year. Creating a next generation OS and computing product is no small task!
We have a functional beta of Abacus OS software. We've installed our OS on microservers to promote a Greener Cloud: Pi, Square and Cube. This is made possible by using System on a Chip Computers (SoCs) manufactured in Mainland China and South Korea. We are currently testing with several manufacturers and debugging the software against them.

Special Thanks to all backers!
Your pledge will help us bring this game-changing software and microserver to market. Data integration, apps building and hosting in one tiny device!
We want developing apps to be easier and help our supporters save thousands on expensive cloud servers!
Thank you for your support!
When we developed our software, we always knew we were building something special. We know we still have some way to go. This is why we turned to Kickstarter. Like many game-changing solutions, our project is not without its risks, but we believe there are only a few small hurdles left.
The pledged funds will go to the following technical and marketing tasks:
• We want to submit more APIs into our software and make it even easier to build apps
• We need to build and test a wider range of page types
• We need to create an automated installer so we can streamline the production and ship the Abacus products en masse
• We need to hire more world-class engineers dedicated to supporting Abacus OS.
• We need to design and source packaging materials
Help us bring our amazing Abacus microservers and our next generation operating system to the masses! Faster software generation from any API and a greener cloud to host them on! Fantastic!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Abacus OS, like all operating systems does 3 things well- protocols, apps and peripherals. This product is for anyone with an interest in making software. The difference is Abacus OS automates the boring work enabling developers to focus on #M2M capability not communication.
Abacus OS is a fully embedded system.
At moment we support HTTP/HTTPS (REST, SOAP, XML-RPC, JSON-RPC) and a beta version of AMQP is nearly complete. Our AMQP implementation works with an abstract real-time broker and once it is complete we will implement a similar broker for MQTT. These protocols as well as TCP/IP will be fully supported in Abacus OS II. We will most likely have AMQP supported by Abacus OS so it is possible we will also support MQTT but no guarantees on that until Abacus OS II.
Abacus is an operating system that automates the connection of APIs to an app (AKA Digital Interface). And make it easy to test APIs and Prototype apps without writing a bunch of code.
It is a hosted LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySqL, PHP) stack. Abacus OS II will be a completely Java-based Operating System, similar to Android.
Yes. We have built this as an OS for connecting data together and interacting with it. It can operate any API connected machinery as well as other API connected software. Examples coming soon!
It makes application development as simple and accessible as putting together a bit of furniture from Ikea. We will be providing our backers with loads of example code and instructions on how to build super cool projects!
Because Abacus makes it easier for people to create API powered software and devices. This has never been achieved before.
Microservers are a demonstration of Clickslide's dedication to a cleaner cloud. Abacus OS can be installed on anything really, but cloud servers are huge and expensive. It is our intention that microservers would serve the environment better than a massive cloud server. Furthermore, we want to support all forms of open hardware. It is the future.
They save on cloud costs, use less materials and are are extremely energy efficient. They are green and we like that.
Abacus OS solves the integration problems faced within apps development. Applications rely on API data in order to work on multiple platforms. However, the integration of APIs can be difficult and expensive. Sometimes, APIs are abandoned because of this and useful data doesn't make it's way into software.
We automate the stack. Integrate data, deploy apps, deliver to multiple platforms and host it all on a green device that is becomes your hosted app server.
