Files on disk.

AppFS is a FUSE-based filesystem that presents a filesystem view of remote packages presented via HTTP for the purpose of running software without the hassle of installing it.

Instead, as files are requested they are downloaded and made available.

It is similar to the LazyFS.

It should be mounted in /opt/appfs. Once mounted, sub-directories will be automatically made available by attempting to access the hostname of an AppFS server. For example, /opt/appfs/core.appfs.rkeene.org contains:

$ ls -l /opt/appfs/core.appfs.rkeene.org/
