LuneOS is a mobile operating system (OS) based on the Linux kernel and currently developed by WebOS Ports community.[5][6] With a user interface based on direct manipulation, LuneOS is designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers; the OS uses touch inputs that loosely correspond to real-world actions, like swiping, tapping, pinching, and reverse pinching to manipulate on-screen objects, and a virtual keyboard.

LuneOS is the open source successor for Palm/HP webOS where the user interface is rebuilt from scratch by using the latest technologies available (Qt 5.6.0 / QML, QtWebEngine, etc).[2] It is not intended to compete with iPhone or Android on features.[7] All devices can have a LuneOS port if they have a CyanogenMod ROM available that works.[8]

As of 2014, the system was still in alpha, with some internal hardware not supported and some applications still buggy,[9] it can be updated without a reinstall.[10] It has the feel of the webOS formerly used on Palm and HP hardware, including a cards-based multitasking system and universal search, it has been described as "a niche mobile operating system maintained by enthusiasts".[11]
