This is the monorepo for humanfs, a modern filesystem API for JavaScript. Most of the filesystem APIs provided by JavaScript runtimes were designed to emulate Linux utilities which, while making them easy to adopt and understand, often requires writing way more code than necessary for common tasks. humanfs is a new approach that streamlines the most common operations while providing useful ways to test the expected functionality.
