FUSE for macOS

Extend native file handling in OS X (was OSXFUSE).

FUSE for macOS overview

FUSE for macOS (was OSXFUSE) allows you to extend OS X's native file-handling capabilities via third-party file systems. It is a successor to MacFUSE, which is no longer being maintained.

As a user, installing the FUSE for macOS software package will let you use any third-party file system written atop FUSE for macOS or MacFUSE, if you choose to install the MacFUSE compatibility layer. As a developer, you can use the FUSE for macOS SDK to write numerous types of file systems as regular user-space programs. The content of these file systems can come from anywhere: from the local disk, from across the network, from memory, or any other combination of sources.

This package will install the runtime and development components of FUSE for macOS. Please note that no FUSE for macOS-based file systems are included in this package.

What’s new in version 4.2.4

Updated on Feb 16 2022

  • Improve support for macOS 12. Starting with macOS 12, the process diskimagesiod needs to be able to access disk images in order for them to be mounted. Allow diskimagesiod to access the volume even if the allow_other mount option has not been specified.
  • Use macOS 12.1 SDK to instead of macOS 11.3 SDK to build macFUSE.

NOT for M1 Macs! I don't care what the developer notes say. FUSE is INERT on M1 Macs. I've been through this twice now. NO, it's NOT compatible with M1 Macs. All you find it does is seriously screw up your system boot then NOT work. Don't install it. Ignore it. I don't say this often but: The developers seriously screwed up and have NOT properly tested 4.1.2 on M1 Macs. /rant

As others have been pointing out, Fuse v2.8.3 is the release version. Version 3.4.1 is still a developer preview and probably not something the average user should be trying.

Just installed the latest stable release from osxfuse.github.io on El Capitan. Mind to enable the MacFUSE compatibility, MacFUSE itself will not work. Installed sshfs too and macfusion is working again. I would not install this version (3.3.2 beta), just use latest stable version 2.8.3.

NOTE that the current public release version of OSXFUSE is 2.8.3. The version 3 series is so far a 'Developer Preview' and is NOT intended for general use. That includes version 3.3.1. Visit the developer's website for v2.8.3.

Question here... I am running OS X 10.11.3 and Windows 10 Pro (using Boot Camp) on my MacBook Pro. I'd like to be able to transfer some music files over to the Windows side from the Mac side. Will OSXFUSE let me do this without damaging the Boot Camp installation? Thanks!

Current version is 2.8.1 BUT won't install on OS X El Capitan unless it has been installed before upgrading. The problem seems to be that El Capitan does not allow the creation of the necessary folders in usr. If you installed it BEFORE updating to El Capitan then there is no problem.
