libprojfs - Linux projected filesystem library

  •        32

A Linux projected filesystem library, similar in concept to the Windows Projected File System and developed in conjunction with the VFSForGit project. While the libprojfs C library may also be used independently of VFSForGit, our primary goal is to enable users to run the VFSForGit client on a Linux system.

securefs - Filesystem in userspace (FUSE) with transparent authenticated encryption

  •    C++

securefs is a filesystem in userspace (FUSE) with transparent encryption (when writing) and decryption (when reading). securefs mounts a regular directory onto a mount point. The mount point appears as a regular filesystem, where one can read/write/create files, directories and symbolic links. The underlying directory will be automatically updated to contain the encrypted and authenticated contents.

rust-fuse - Rust library for filesystems in userspace (FUSE)

VFSForGit - Virtual File System for Git: Enable Git at Enterprise Scale

  •    CSharp

VFS stands for Virtual File System. VFS for Git virtualizes the file system beneath your git repo so that git and all tools see what appears to be a normal repo, but VFS for Git only downloads objects as they are needed. VFS for Git also manages the files that git will consider, to ensure that git operations like status, checkout, etc., can be as quick as possible because they will only consider the files that the user has accessed, not all files in the repo. This project was formerly known as GVFS (Git Virtual File System). It is undergoing a rename to VFS for Git. While the rename is in progress, the code, protocol, built executables, and releases may still refer to the old GVFS name. See for the latest status of the rename effort.

POSIX Overlay Filesystem

A FUSE filesystem that provides POSIX functionality - UNIX-style permissions, ownership, special files - for filesystems that do not have such, e.g. vfat. It is a modern equivalent of the UMSDOS fs.

libfuse - The reference implementation of the Linux FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) interface

  •    C

FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) is an interface for userspace programs to export a filesystem to the Linux kernel. The FUSE project consists of two components: the fuse kernel module (maintained in the regular kernel repositories) and the libfuse userspace library (maintained in this repository). libfuse provides the reference implementation for communicating with the FUSE kernel module. A FUSE file system is typically implemented as a standalone application that links with libfuse. libfuse provides functions to mount the file system, unmount it, read requests from the kernel, and send responses back. libfuse offers two APIs: a "high-level", synchronous API, and a "low-level" asynchronous API. In both cases, incoming requests from the kernel are passed to the main program using callbacks. When using the high-level API, the callbacks may work with file names and paths instead of inodes, and processing of a request finishes when the callback function returns. When using the low-level API, the callbacks must work with inodes and responses must be sent explicitly using a separate set of API functions.

gcsf - a FUSE file system based on Google Drive

GCSF is a virtual filesystem that allows users to mount their Google Drive account locally and interact with it as a regular disk partition. You can find out more in this paper. An AUR package is maintained by axionl: gcsf-git.

dungeonfs - A FUSE filesystem and dungeon crawling adventure game engine

  •    Go

DungeonFS is a FUSE filesystem and dungeon crawling adventure game engine. This is a work-in-progress, however, there is a general list of planned features worth checking out, as well as, a little bit of the motivation behind why I started this project. Note: The demo level is included in the <project root>/examples/simplelevel folder, which should be downloaded with the above command. In the future, I will have this included with the static binary so the demo level is accessible without need go installed on the system.

Afero - A FileSystem Abstraction System for Go

Afero is an filesystem framework providing a simple, uniform and universal API interacting with any filesystem, as an abstraction layer providing interfaces, types and methods. Afero has an exceptionally clean interface and simple design without needless constructors or initialization methods.Afero is also a library providing a base set of interoperable backend filesystems that make it easy to work with afero while retaining all the power and benefit of the os and ioutil packages.

winfsp - Windows File System Proxy - FUSE for Windows

  •    C

WinFsp is a set of software components for Windows computers that allows the creation of user mode file systems. In this sense it is similar to FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace), which provides the same functionality on UNIX-like computers. WinFsp is very stable. There are no known kernel mode crashes and it does not suffer from resource leaks or similar problems. WinFsp owes this stability to its Design and its rigorous Testing Regime.

pyfilesystem - Python filesystem abstraction layer

  •    Python

Note: The project has largely been replaced by PyFilesystem2 which offers many improvements over the original. PyFilesystem is an abstraction layer for filesystems. In the same way that Python's file-like objects provide a common way of accessing files, PyFilesystem provides a common way of accessing entire filesystems. You can write platform-independent code to work with local files, that also works with any of the supported filesystems (zip, ftp, S3 etc.).
