Anyone used MacFuse?
My brother Steve just pointed me to MacFuse which looks like it will be super handy!
You have been able to setup a remote SSH virtual local file system on linux for a while now. I have wanted to be able to do this on my Mac for a few years now. I have looked around for solutions and nothing has looked promising yet, until MacFUSE.
With MacFuse you can create all kinds of virtual file systems (the look like a local file system or volume), this includes a sshfs, ntfs, ftpfs, wdfs (WebDAV), cryptofs, encfs, bindfs, unionfs, beaglefs, and more.
MacFUSE implements a mechanism that makes it possible to implement a fully functional file system in a user-space program on Mac OS X. It aims to be API-compliant with the FUSE (Filesystem in USErspace) mechanism that originated on Linux. Therefore, many existing FUSE file systems become readily usable on Mac OS X. The core of MacFUSE is in a dynamically loadable kernel extension.
I don't have time to install it right now (I'm heading over to Syracuse to watch the SU vs Villanova game), so I was wondering if anyone has used it, and your thoughts?
