See FUSE documentation for details.


fuse-zip is a fuse filesystem, that enables any program to work with a ZIP archive as
though it is a plain directory. Unlike KIO or Gnome VFS, it can be used in any
application without modifications.

Unlike other FUSE filesystems, only fuse-zip provides write support to ZIP archives.
Also, fuse-zip is faster that all known implementations on large archives with many files.

Since version 0.3.0 fuse-zip has support for absolute and parent-relative paths in file
names, but only in read-only mode (-r command line switch). Absolute paths are displayed
under "ROOT" directory, every ".." in path replaced by "UP" in directory name and "normal"
files are placed under "CUR" directory.

Support for UNIX file permissions and owner information has been added in version 0.4. See
PERMISSIONS for details.


General usage would look like this

1 mkdir /tmp/zipArchive
2 fuse-zip foobar.zip /tmp/zipArchive
3 (do something with the mounted file system)
4 fusermount -u /tmp/zipArchive

Be patient. Wait for fuse-zip process finish after unmounting, especially on a big


Access check will not be performed unless -o default_permissions mount option is given.
