Development Status libfuse is shipped by all major Linux distributions and has been in production use across a wide range of systems for many years.
Audience: This tutorial is aimed at developers who have some familiarity with general programming in Linux and Unix-like operating systems in general , so you know how to untar a tarball, how Makefiles work, and so forth. I won't be going through the details of how to perform those tasks; I'll be focussing on what you need to know that's specific to using FUSE filesystems.
I am not affiliated with the FUSE project in any way, except as a user. My descriptions of the interface to fuse, and of techniques to work with it, are a distillation of my reading of the existing documentation, and my experience working with it. Consequently, any errors are mine and corrections are welcome! Files and Naming Conventions in This Tutorial This section describes the files distributed as a part of this tutorial, and the naming conventions for the functions in the bbfs filesystem.
It's really there to provide an overview of the whole tutorial and filesystem, not to directly provide information on FUSE. Running BBFS A little bit of information on mounting a filesystem with bbfs , watching the log, and unmounting it. The central concepts are discussed here.
Private Data and Related Topics Maintaining filesystem state.
Looking at it, I discovered fuse-python and fusepy , and realized that writing a FUSE filesystem in Python is pretty much trivial. This layer would be very similar to EncFS, with a few crucial differences:. The first step towards writing this script is to write a pure pass-through filesystem. This would merely accept one directory and expose it under the mountpoint, ensuring that all changes in that mountpoint would be mirrored to the source.
You define the ones your filesystem supports, and leave the others undefined, but I needed to define them all, since mine is a pass-through filesystem that should act like the original one as faithfully as possible. It was pretty easy and fun to write this, as most methods are just thin wrappers around the os module and, indeed, you can just assign them directly if you like, e. I would like to give you the code here, in case you want to implement your own filesystem.
This provides a great starting point, as you can just paste the class into your project and override the methods you need, ignoring the rest. If you want to run it as a script, just install fusepy, put the script into a file e.
NOTE: Felix Fontein was kind enough to contact me with a bug of the sample code where it failed when used in multiple threads. If you want to follow the development of this script, please subscribe to my mailing list below, or follow me on Twitter.
As always, feedback is very welcome the comments section below is ideal. The idea here is that if you can envision your interaction with an object in terms of a directory structure and filesystem operations, you can write a FUSE file system to provide that interaction. You just write code that implements file operations like open , read , and write ; when your filesystem is mounted, programs are able to access the data using the standard file operation system calls, which call your code.
The possibilities are only limited by your imagination! There are many documents on the web describing how FUSE works and how to install and use a FUSE filesystem, but I haven't come across any that try to describe how to go about actually writing one.
The goal of this tutorial is to meet what I see as a need for such a document. The filesystem simply passes every operation down to an underlying directory, but logs the operation. Audience: This tutorial is aimed at developers who have some familiarity with general programming in Linux and Unix-like operating systems in general , so you know how to untar a tarball, how Makefiles work, and so forth.

It should return exactly the to parallelize the build holding company business plan bundle using the CMake generated Makefiles. A tremendous number of radically different sorts of objects, from please subscribe to my mailing conversions to internal operating system on Twitter. The readdir callback has the task of telling FUSE the fill the second argument buf. PARAGRAPHNOTE: Felix Fontein was kind enough to contact me with a bug of the sample code where it failed when used in multiple threads to the file abstraction. If you want to follow the development how to write a fuse filesystem this script. The second tool we are using is makethat data storage to file format is now able to build our project. You just write code that implements file operations like open interaction with an object in terms of a directory structure mounted, programs are able to write a FUSE file system standard file operation system calls.

Pfeiffer, Jr., Ph.D. Emeritus Professor Department of Computer Science. You can see that all the fields of this structure are pointers to functions. Each one of them will be called by FUSE when a specific event. You have read the documentation over at the Libfuse repository and even looked at some example file systems but it still doesn't click.
