The cammount tool mounts a root directory blob onto the given mountpoint. The blobref can be given directly or through a share blob URL. If no root blobref is given, an automatic root is created instead.
Execute the following commands in a shell to mount a Perkeep directory in your home directory.
mkdir ~/Perkeep cammount ~/Perkeep cd ~/Perkeep ls -C1 WELCOME.txt at date recent roots sha1-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx tag
Files and directories are anchored in a root node. You can view and create Root nodes in the roots directory. For example to create a Photos root node execute the following commands:
cd ~/Perkeep mkdir roots/Photos cd roots/Photos cp -R ~/Photos/* .
A list of recently accessed items are visible in the recent directory.
cd ~/Perkeep/recent ls -C1 IMG_20171104_193001.jpg IMG_20171104_205408_thumbnail.jpg IMG_20171208_070038.jpg test.txt
The at directory contains full instructions in the README.txt file contained within.
You can directly access a specific directory by using the full sha1 identifier.
cd ~/Perkeep cd sha1-xxx # where xxx is the full 16 character identifier
