Mount a WebDAV resource as a regular file system

Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV), an extension to the HTTP-protocol, allows authoring of resources on a remote web server. davfs2 provides the ability to access such resources like a typical filesystem, allowing for use by standard applications with no built-in support for WebDAV.

davfs2 is designed to fully integrate into the filesystem semantics of Unix-like systems (mount, umount, etc.). davfs2 makes mounting by unprivileged users as easy and secure as possible.

davfs2 does extensive caching to make the file system responsive, to avoid unnecessary network traffic and to prevent data loss, and to cope for slow or unreliable connections.

davfs2 will work with most WebDAV servers needing little or no configuration.

davfs2 is developed and tested on GNU/Linux but porting to other free operating systems should not be too cumbersome.

I don't use davfs2 myself for many years now and would like to hand the project over to someone with more interest than me.
Please contact me by email.

Version 1.6.0 released
     posted by wbaumann, Fri 07 Aug 2020 01:56:43 PM UTC - 0 replies

The new release brings:

  • The coda module is dropped. It would have required some serious maintenance. But the fuse kernel file system is better suited anyway. So coda is no longer required.
  • The neon library from version 0.31 on has a workaround for SharePoint's href-bug. davfs2 can use this workaround.
  • Some minor bug fixes (see the ChangeLog file).
