sshfs on OSX

[ #32207 ]
A few weeks ago Acme mentioned that sshfs rocked. Sshfs as you might guess lets you mount anything you can access through ssh as if it was a network file system.

I got all excited about this and the next weekend I tried to install it on OSX, but to my dismay I found that fuse (something sshfs relies on) was Linux specific and not available for OSX :(

I complained to Acme; who then pointed me to a http://code.google.com/p/macfuse/ which had been released that day - talk about good timing.

Now this was fantastic I managed to get it installed - and it worked.

The only problem was how painful it is to build, so I've put together a bundle of everything you will need (except Xcode which you can get from Apple), and two shell scripts to do the install for you.

So download http://leo.cuckoo.org/projects/sshfs/bundle.tar.gz and enjoy (usual blurb about taking not responsibility for anything what so ever goes here)

  • There's an installer (in a .dmg) on the download page. Just run that and reboot and it all "just works".

    It's a bit slow though.
    • Slow is relative. It beats the pants off Emacs + tramp. I finally got it installed from source today, without putting yet another copy of stupid glib on my system...
    • Heh - that wasn't there aweek ago!
