Filesystem based on etcd
etcdfs is a simple FUSE filesystem based on etcd. It allows you to mount the key space of an etcd cluster as a filesystem.
The main goal of this project is to be able to work with etcd with well-known Linux tools, like ls, cp, grep, rather than etcdctl or any other etcd command-line client.
etcdfs can also be useful in case a very simple shared storage is required, like in the case of common configuration.
How it works
etcdfs can mount the whole etcd hierarchical key space (/) or any part of it. Etcd keys are mapped to FS files and etcd directories are mapped to FS directories.
First you will need to install FUSE from http://github.com/libfuse/libfuse. After installing FUSE, install the etcdfs Python package:
$ python setup.py install
How to use
Simply run etcdfs and provide the mountpoint and the etcd keyspace that you want to mount:
$ etcdfs –basedir $basedir $mountpoint
Unmount the filesystem by using fusermount:
$ fusermount -u $mountpoint
