Eden is a project with several components, the most prominent of which is a virtual filesystem built using FUSE.
The version that we provide on GitHub does not build yet.
This is because the code is exported verbatim from an internal repository at Facebook, and not all of the scaffolding from our internal repository can be easily extracted. The key areas where we need to shore things up are:
- The reinterpretations of build macros in
- A process for including third-party dependencies (presumably via Git submodules) and wiring up the
external_depsargument in the build macros to point to them.
- Providing the toolchain needed to power the [undocumented]
thrift_library()rule in Buck.
The goal is to get Eden building on both Linux and OS X, though Linux support is expected to come first.
