fusepy is a Python module that provides a simple interface to FUSE and MacFUSE. It’s just one file and is implemented using ctypes.

The original version of fusepy was hosted on Google Code, but is now officially hosted on GitHub.

fusepy is written in 2x syntax, but trying to pay attention to bytes and other changes 3x would care about.


See some examples of how you can use fusepy:


A simple memory filesystem


A loopback filesystem


Sample usage of fuse_get_context()


A simple SFTP filesystem (requires paramiko)

To get started download fusepy or just browse the source.

fusepy requires FUSE 2.6 (or later) and runs on:

  • Linux (i386, x86_64, PPC, arm64, MIPS)

  • Mac OS X (Intel, PowerPC)

  • FreeBSD (i386, amd64)
