airfs: A Python library for cloud and remote file Systems

airfs brings standard Python I/O to cloud objects and other remote file systems by providing:

  • Abstract classes of Cloud objects with the complete io.RawIOBase and io.BufferedIOBase standard interfaces.
  • Features equivalent to the standard library (io, os, os.path, shutil) for seamlessly managing cloud objects and local files.

These functions are source agnostic and always provide the same interface for all files from cloud storage or local file systems.

Buffered cloud objects also support the following features:

  • Buffered asynchronous writing of any object size.
  • Buffered asynchronous preloading in reading mode.
  • Write or read lock depending on memory usage limitation.
  • Maximization of bandwidth using parallels connections.

Supported Cloud storage

airfs is compatible with the following cloud objects storage services:

  • Alibaba Cloud OSS
  • Amazon Web Services S3
  • Microsoft Azure Blobs Storage
  • Microsoft Azure Files Storage
  • OpenStack Swift

airfs can also access any publicly accessible file via HTTP/HTTPS (Read only).

About airfs and Pycosio

"airfs" is a fork of the Accelize's "Pycosio" project.

The "Pycosio" project was started in 2018 to complement the products of the Accelize company. Over time and as Accelize products evolved, the library was no longer needed in the company's products and was maintained less and less. Since mid 2019, Accelize no longer has an interest in continuing to develop the library and no one is working on it.

As creator and sole developer of the library at Accelize, I decided to create a fork of the project so that it is now maintained by the open source community under the name "airfs" (the name "Pycosio" being the property of Accelize).
