pyfilesystem2 - Python's Filesystem abstraction layer

  •        8

Python's Filesystem abstraction layer. Think of PyFilesystem's FS objects as the next logical step to Python's file objects. In the same way that file objects abstract a single file, FS objects abstract an entire filesystem.

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Note: The project has largely been replaced by PyFilesystem2 which offers many improvements over the original.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.).

AVFS: A Virtual Filesystem

AVFS is a system, which enables all programs to look inside gzip, tar, zip, etc. files or view remote (ftp, http, dav, etc.) files, without recompiling the programs.

FSArchiver - Filesystem Archiver for Linux

  •    C

FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a different file-system. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the file-system when it extracts the data to partitions. Everything is checksummed in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive is corrupt, you just loose the current file, not the whole archive.

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.

idb.filesystem.js - HTML5 Filesystem API polyfill using IndexedDB

  •    Javascript

idb.filesystem.js is a well tested JavaScript polyfill implementation of the HTML5 Filesystem API. It is intended for browsers that do not support the API natively. The library works by using IndexedDB as its underlying storage layer. Essentially, this means that any browser supporting IndexedDB also supports the Filesystem API! All you need to do is make Filesystem API calls, and the rest is magic.

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.
