RubyFuse is a library aimed at allowing Ruby programmers to quickly and easily create virtual filesystems with little more than a few lines of code.
A "hello world" filesystem equivalent to the one demonstrated on fuse.sourceforge.org is just 20 lines of code!
RubyFuse is NOT a full implementation of the FUSE API ... yet.
- Linux or Mac OS X
- FUSE or MacFuse
- Ruby 1.8 (* C compiler)
RubyFuse is available as a Ruby Gem. Installation is as easy as:
$ gem sources -a http://gems.github.com $ gem install jmstacey-rubyfuse
Manually installations can be performed with this:
$ ruby setup.rb
More advanced installation options are available with setup.rb. Try "ruby setup.rb --help". If you need to supply alternative path information for the FUSE libraries, follow this example:
$ ruby setup.rb config -- --with-fuse-dir=/opt/local/include --with-fuse-lib=/opt/local/lib $ ruby setup.rb setup $ sudo ruby setup.rb install
Some sample ruby filesystems are listed in "samples/". When you run a RubyFuse script, it will listen on a socket indefinitely, so either background the script or open another terminal to explore the filesystem.
