Arvados FUSE driver

Project description


This package provides a FUSE driver for Keep, the Arvados storage system. It allows you to read data from your collections as if they were on the local filesystem.


Installing under your user account

This method lets you install the package without root access. However, other users on the same system won’t be able to use it.

  1. Run pip install --user arvados_fuse.
  2. In your shell configuration, make sure you add $HOME/.local/bin to your PATH environment variable. For example, you could add the command PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.local/bin to your .bashrc file.
  3. Reload your shell configuration. For example, bash users could run source ~/.bashrc.

Installing on Debian systems

  1. Add this Arvados repository to your sources list:

    deb jessie main
  2. Update your package list.

  3. Install the python-arvados-fuse package.


This driver needs two pieces of information to connect to Arvados: the DNS name of the API server, and an API authorization token. You can set these in environment variables, or the file $HOME/.config/arvados/settings.conf. The Arvados user documentation describes how to find this information in the Arvados Workbench, and install it on your system.

Testing and Development

Debian packages you need to build llfuse:

$ apt-get install python-dev pkg-config libfuse-dev libattr1-dev

This package is one part of the Arvados source package, and it has integration tests to check interoperability with other Arvados components. Our hacking guide describes how to set up a development environment and run tests.
