GitFuse

Easily mount git repositories as read-only file systems using FUSE.

Acknowledments

GitFuse was originally forked from py-gitfs by Sergey Shepelev.

Usage

usage: gitfuse [-h] <git_path> <mount_path>

Mounts the contents of a git repository in read-only mode using FUSE.

positional arguments:
  <git_path>    Path to git repository.
  <mount_path>  Path to mount point.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help    show this help message and exit

Known issues

  1. When running gitfuse from the command line, the user sees the following error:

    ImportError: libgit2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file
    or directory
    

    This happens when the libgit2 library files cannot be found by the dynamic linker. There are two ways to fix this problem that I'm aware of:

    • By manually installing pygit2 after setting the LD_RUN_PATH environment variable:

      export LD_RUN_PATH=/usr/local/lib && python setup.py install
      
    • By running gitfuse after updating the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable:

      export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib && gitfuse
      

    The first of the two methods is the preferred one since it is a permanent fix for the problem on a particular system. Do not modify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable as a blanket fix in your .bashrc. Reasons to avoid this can be found in this stackoverflow post.
