macFUSE

February 21st, 2007


I held off on writing about macFUSE when it was first released on Google Code because it seemed to be in somewhat of an unfinished state — it hadn’t been packaged up in a handy OS X .pkg, and there was a couple rough edges here and there, so I decided the best thing to do is hold off. But this afternoon they rev’d to 0.2.1, and I got intrigued by the sshFS plug-in, so I installed it; and boy is it neat.

In a nutshell — anywhere you can ssh into, you can mount as a network share in the Finder. And sure, the SpotlightFS beachballed my finder, but Spotlight on my system has never worked that great; in any case the sshFS seems rock solid. Give it a try… and thanks again, Google.
