NAME

Acme::CatFS

SYNOPSIS

  Acme::CatFS->new(mountpoint => '/tmp/catfs', debug => 0, cat_file => 'kitten.jpg')->run();

DESCRIPTION

Acme::CatFS will create a Fuse mountpoint and generate one virtual file, a random image of a cat. Will return a different image each time.

It is the equivalent to:

  Fuse::Simple::main(
    mountpoint => $mountpoint,
    "/"        => {
      'cat.jpg' => sub {
          LWP::Simple::get('http://thecatapi.com/api/images/get?format=src&type=jpg');
       },
    },
  );

METHODS

run

Will initialize the Fuse mountpoint.

SCRIPT

You can call acme-catfs helper script in you command line to easily create the mountpoint. Try acme-catfs -h to see the options.

ATTRIBUTES

cat_url

Specify the url for the random pic of cat. Default is 'thecatapi.com' service.

If true, will run Fuse::Simple::main in debug mode.
