Python module to interact programmatically with an online btrfs file system
python-btrfs is a Python 3 library that provides ways to interact programmatically with an online btrfs file system.
It provides a pure python shadow implementation of data structures used in btrfs together with convenient wrappers around the collection of kernel functions that are available in the btrfs kernel API.
Using them, we can examine the secret inner world of a btrfs file system for educational purposes.
The target audience for using the library is system administrators and developers who want to discover more about the internals of a btrfs file system, or want to create adjusted monitoring or administration tools that are optimized for their specific use cases.
python-btrfs does not directly access disk storage, it only uses functions available in the kernel interface, using system calls. This also means that python-btrfs can not be used to repair a broken filesystem whenever the running Linux kernel cannot properly mount it.
