Simple ctypes bindings for FUSE
Find file
Latest commit 27d76e4 @terencehonles safely save and restore signal handler
calls to `signal.signal` not on the main thread would raise a
`ValueError`. Resolving by catching that exception and continuing



fusepy is a Python module that provides a simple interface to FUSE and MacFUSE. It's just one file and is implemented using ctypes.

The original version of fusepy was hosted on Google Code, but is now officially hosted on GitHub.

fusepy is written in 2x syntax, but trying to pay attention to bytes and other changes 3x would care about. The only incompatible changes between 2x and 3x are the change in syntax for number literals and exceptions. These issues are fixed using the 2to3 tool when installing the package, or runnning:

2to3 -f numliterals -f except -w


See some examples of how you can use fusepy:

memory:A simple memory filesystem
loopback:A loopback filesystem
context:Sample usage of fuse_get_context()
sftp:A simple SFTP filesystem (requires paramiko)

To get started download fusepy or just browse the source.

fusepy requires FUSE 2.6 (or later) and runs on:

  • Linux (i386, x86_64, PPC)
  • Mac OS X (Intel, PowerPC)
  • FreeBSD (i386, amd64)
