      Thanks for the suggestions!

      We did all these comparison guides quite a few time ago now where we only aimed to be a file system and where it was difficult to measure our performances. It indeed needs to be revamped quite a lot, with some other competitors as well as other measurements like "is it providing block/file/object storage?" for example. I like the commercial/free/freemium comparison point, definitely keeping it in mind.

        Hey, we chose a unique username because we want it to be dead simple to invite someone to join a network / drive with a handle (like Twitter for example).

          It's still on our roadmap, we know it's been a while now but it has been postponed due to other priorities (Windows Docker support among others).

            You should be able to get this to work by setting the INFINIT_HOME environment variable when launching the GUI:

            INFINIT_HOME=/path/to/your/infinit/home /Applications/Infinit\ Drive.app/Contents/MacOS/nwjs

              Hi,

              Thanks a lot for this suggestion. Indeed, having a streaming-based access interface such as FUSE has several disadvantages: (i) FUSE is still not a super stable technology (i) unlike mirroring technologies like Dropbox’s that clones the files locally, a streaming-based access may prevent you from accessing your files should you not be connected to the network for instance.

              We have planned three things to reduces these limitations:
              – The possibility to access a volume through a synced folder (in opposition to a mounted volume) leading to a similar experience to Dropbox where all the files are cloned locally. It consumes local storage space but has the benefit of having the files available at any time. Example: infinit-volume —sync (rather than infinit-volume —mount)
              – Provide a way to spawn a local NFS/SMB server that the local computer could connect to (since all operating systems embed NFS/SMB

              It is planned. We have most of the pieces. It's now a question of priority.

              People, don't hesitate to upvote this one if you want it. We will make it happen.

                Thanks for the explanation.

                Indeed, we want to provide a way for developers to easily use Infinit an object store (like AWS S3). This should be too complicated for us to accomplish since our technology already provides a layer responsible for storing blocks of data.

                Regarding a HTTP-based API, indeed it would make sense. I cannot tell you when we would consider this but we will definitely discuss it internally very soon.

                Thanks a lot for the feedback. We will keep you posted.

                  You are right. We intend to provide commands to operate on the file system without mounting it.

                  We don't know yet when this will be provided however. Don't hesitate to vote :)
