HeisencatFS – a webdav virtual filesytem demo

HeisencatFS serves a webdav server that hosts a single
file, the_cat_box.txt, which – when opened – randomly
tell you either “the cat is alive” or “the cat is dead.”
The state of the cat changes each time you open it.

The site is hosted at localhost:8086, and can be
mounted as a filesystem on windows and linux. When
mounted, the filesystem looks like:


and cating the_cat_box.txt will give you a state.

To run

python heisencatFS.py


Used as a demo to explore davfs on windows and linux
as a virtual fileystem alternative to 9p et al.
