Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

TerraFS

From FlightGear wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

As a side product while preparing the infrastructure for a SVN free, plain http based terrasync, Torsten [1]developed a little tool to mount the terrasync scenery directly as a remote file system.

It uses curl for the network communication and fuse for the user space file system api. Far from being perfect, it seems to be working nicely.

Pros:

  • No sync, no files stored on your hard drive
  • Always up-to-date data Fat-free

Cons:

  • No sync, no files stored locally on your hard drive
  • Needs a good internet connection Linux only (should be under pros?)

The source is here: https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/terrafs/

Feedback, improvements and patches welcome.
