Fuse for Windows
This project is an attempt to write a version of FUSE library that works on Windows.
The work has been undertaken as the positive outcome could really benefit the community. Obvious proof of this: there has been a number of past failed attempts.
Many applications already are available for Linux/Mac users. E.g.
mounting control version systems such as git, mercurial
compressed archives such as zips.
kind of hard links in windows
network filesystems like NFS, ssh, ftp ....
The deliverables of this project are going to be:
kernel driver (as tiny as possible)
user side library (maybe service) exposing FUSE APIs.
some quick port of one of fuse aplications as proof of concept.
some command line tools (mount/umount/listing etc
As a kind of reference for performance, lightweigtness and user friendliness Pismo file mount is taken. Unfortunatelly a non-opensource and non-extendable solution.
No big expectations please as time and resources are limited.
