Simple Distibuted FileSystem

Project Description

The Distributed “Filesystem” used as data backend for TidalStream (not an actual filesystem)

SDFS is basically just the underlying filesystem exposed through an XMLRPC server. It also supports plugins.

Currently there are two builtin plugins exposed through the XMLRPC server, list and stream. The list plugin can list folders and the stream plugin can start a stream and send back an url to the requesting client.

There are a few other types of plugins, generic and metadata handler.

The generic ones are the ones like the http plugin that does not fix into a box, but are used by other plugins to get them working.

The metadata handler plugins are the ones setting metadata on files and folders during scan, e.g. imdb, it crawls the NFO and sets the imdb for the parent folder.
