Command cammount

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


Creating a Root Node

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/* .

Accessing Recent Items

A list of recently accessed items are visible in the recent directory.

cd ~/Perkeep/recent
ls -C1
