Top 5 C file-system Projects

  • zfs

    OpenZFS on Linux and FreeBSD

    Project mention: What's the issue with ZFS (OpenZFS specifically) constantly breaking on kernel updates even when utilizing DKMS? | /r/zfs | 2023-09-14

    The kernel doesn't guarantee API backwards compatibility for kernel modules outside of the kernel. They constantly break things (sometimes on purpose for non-GPL projects: https://github.com/openzfs/zfs/issues/14555 )

  • MooseFS

    MooseFS – Open Source, Petabyte, Fault-Tolerant, Highly Performing, Scalable Network Distributed File System (Software-Defined Storage)

    Project mention: Google Cloud Storage FUSE | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-05-02
  • Mergify

    Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.

  • casync

    Content-Addressable Data Synchronization Tool

    Project mention: We reduced conda’s index fetch bandwidth by 99% | /r/Python | 2023-04-25

    For arbitrary state changes however, it's better to use something like casync. Note that there are a lot of tunables, implicit and explicit; for package indexing I would particularly think about "how is the index sorted" and "what is the desired chunk size".

  • spiffs

    Wear-leveled SPI flash file system for embedded devices

    Project mention: SPI Flash file system vs writing my own fifo? | /r/embedded | 2022-10-27
  • mos

    A hobby operating system developed from scratch (by MQuy)

    Project mention: MOS: A hobby Unix-like operating system developed from scratch | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-10-11
