How to use the new ORI file system on Ubuntu? Are there any documentations?


There is a manual here (This is the paper from the original ori-page).

Quote from page 154:

"The following commands create and mount an autosynchronized file system.

Listing 1: Configuration of a user’s initial repository.

ori newfs MyRepo
orifs MyRepo

In the example above, a repository named MyRepo is created, and mounted onto a directory with the same name. By default orisync is enabled, but can be disabled with the --nosync flag. Next, in Listing 2, we replicate and mount the file system on a different computer from the first host over SSH.

Listing 2: Remote mounting a file system

ori replicate --shallow user@host:MyRepo
orifs MyRepo

In this example we use the --shallow flag to enable the background fetch optimization. Data is fetched from the source in the background and on-demand, and once enough data is replicated the machine will be ready for offline operation. We mount the MyRepo replica onto a directory with the same name."

I have no idea what they are talking about, but maybe it helps the pros here...


Actually there is a ppa provided by the developers:

add-apt-repository ppa:ezyang/ppa
apt-get update
apt-get install ori
