Mount S3 bucket in workspace using s3fs?



I’m trying to use a c9 workspace to edit and preview some static web content hosted on S3. I figured it would be as easy as mounting the bucket into my workspace using s3fs, however, I can’t seem to get FUSE set up… Whenever I modprobe fuse, I get modprobe: ERROR: ../libkmod/libkmod.c:556 kmod_search_moddep() could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/4.9.17-c9/modules.dep.bin' I’ve tried updating the kernel, but it won’t stick.

Has anyone tried to do this before? Seems like it should be straightforward… any ideas?



fuse is not available in docker containers without admin privileges, so it can’t work on hosted workspaces.
You can either use ssh workspace.
Or download the whole website, make changes using the cloud9 preview, and then upload back to s3.
