FUSE

Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) is a loadable Unix kernel module that allows non-privileged users to create their file systems without editing the kernel code. The code of these file systems is run on userspace programs – FUSE helps them link to the kernel interface.
FUSE is available on several operating systems, including Linux, macOS, and Android.

FUSE is built on two main components: the fuse kernel module and the libfuse userspace library. The libfuse library provides functionality to mount and unmount file systems.Alt Text It also enables reading and responding to kernel requests.
