Quickly conjure up virtual fileysystems

Project description

MagicFS (mafs)

MagicFS is a simple-to-use tool that allows you to easily create virtual filesystems using FUSE.

If you've ever wanted to play around with filesystems, but have been put off by the complexity of libfuse, this library could be for you. You can easily create whole, feature-complete filesystems in just a few lines of code. No need for painstakingly dealing with folder structures and buffers, mafs manages all the low-level details, provides sane defaults, and lets you focus on functionality.


$ git clone
$ cd mafs
$ pip install .


All of the examples are listed in examples/. Here's a demo of running the example.

$ mkdir fs
$ python3 examples/ fs
$ ls fs
place  shortcut
$ ls fs/place
here  there
$ cat fs/place/here
this is here
$ cat fs/place/there
this is there
$ cat fs/place/anywhere
this is anywhere!
$ fusermount -u fs
