Mount SSH/SFTP or FTP accounts as if they were local files.

Overview

MacFusion is an open source Mac application that allows you to work with files on servers across the internet, as if they were sitting on your computer. Macfusion presents a Volume in Finder, letting you use your favorite Mac applications to work with them. Macfusion works with SSH/SFTP and FTP servers.

More generally, Macfusion is a front-end to MacFUSE software. Macfusion provides a plugin API to enable the creation of plugins for other FUSE filesystems.

Was working for me in Snow Leopard 10.6.2 . Just updated to 10.6.3 and all mount points have disappeared from the configuration window and the menubar item does not appear in the menubar.

For me it still wouldn't work with the default mount point under /Volumes (no permission to create subdirectory).

As some others commented on GitHub, it works if you change the mount point to something like /Users/yourNameHere/someDirectory/mountPoint (where "mountPoint" doesn't exist, but instead is created by MacFusion and removed when you eject the remote volume).

I used /Users/myUsername/.macfusion so that they're "hidden" as far as Finder is concerned.

Can't seem to get it working in OS X Yosemite 10.10 - it crashes just trying to set up a server or remove a server, and never mounted anything.

Quick Look appears to crash the menuling (Mavericks aka 10.9, but I think it was also happening in Snow Leopard aka 10.6)

OSX Fuse 2.3.2 + MacFusion 2.0.4 fails to read/write files via sshfs. It could mount the volume, but many operations did not work because of "no privilege to read", while I could move/delete remote files.

If you upgrade your MacFuse to this *BETA* release: http://www.tuxera.com/mac/macfuse-core-10.5-2.1.9.dmg And sshfs is at this version: http://osxbook.com/download/sshfs/sshfs-static-leopard.gz Then it should work fine in Lion, but it is BETA software, so you install it at your own risk, but so far so good for me.
