jmmv Add skeleton reimplementation of sandboxfs in Rust (#23)
This change adds a barebones reimplementation of sandboxfs in Rust.
As things are now, the new version does nothing: it just provides
trivial command-line processing and mounts an empty FUSE file

However, this change puts all pieces in place to continue development
of this new version.  In particular, this adjusts the Travis CI
configuration to support running the exact same integration tests as
we run for the Go implementation against the new code, and currently
blacklists all of them because the new code passes none.

sandboxfs: A virtual file system for sandboxing

sandboxfs is a FUSE file system that exposes a combination of multiple files and directories from the host's file system in the form of a virtual tree with an arbitrary layout. You can think of a sandbox as an arbitrary view into the host's file system with different access privileges per directory.

sandboxfs is designed to allow running commands with limited access to the file system by using the virtual tree as their new root, and to do so consistently across a variety of platforms.

sandboxfs is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license and is not an official Google product.


sandboxfs is still under active development and there have not yet been any formal releases.

See the installation instructions for details on how to build and install sandboxfs.

See the release notes file for more details.


sandboxfs is fully documented in the sandboxfs(1) manual page, which is located in the cmd/sandboxfs/sandboxfs.1 file. You can view a rendered version of this manual page using the following command after cloning the tree:

man ./cmd/sandboxfs/sandboxfs.1
