About the BSD Installer
The BSD Installer is a lightweight system installation and configuration tool for *BSD operating systems, designed with tractability, ease-of-use, and robustness in mind.
By using the DFUI abstraction layer, the BSD Installer cleanly separates the user interface from the application logic, allowing for a greater range of possibilities for interface design and accessibility.
Development continues with improvements to its functionality, usability, and presentation, and work continues on integrating it with more BSD-based operating system distributions.
The latest backend is based on a combination of Lua and C which delivers an incredibly powerful installer solution.
