Project Summary

httpfs-ruby mounts a directory mount-point and allow you to read any http file as it they were local.

This is based on fusefs, a fuse binding for ruby. It is a one-day hack so it seems to works but should be considered beta. (btw im still amazed that it is now possible to write a filesystem in 125-lines :)

Usage: 1. mount the httpfs mount point

httpfs your/mount/point2. read http file thru it, e.g. say http://example.com/index.html

cat your/mount/point/example.com/index.htmlNotesAs the name indicates this is coded in ruby, so dont expect it to be cpu efficient. This is a one day hack, published in case some people find it helpfull.

httpfs is coded in C so is much likely more cpu efficient, but it allows only to mount a single file per mount. It didnt fit my need.

Creditsfusefs is the ruby library that httpfs-ruby uses to access fuse feature. 'FuseFS lets ruby programmers define filesystems entirely in Ruby' from the project homepage.
