SlothFS is a FUSE filesystem that provides light-weight, lazily downloaded, read-only checkouts of manifest-based Git projects. It is intended for use with Android.

go install github.com/google/slothfs/cmd/slothfs-repofs
mkdir /tmp/mnt
slothfs-repofs /tmp/mnt &

go install github.com/google/slothfs/cmd/slothfs-deref-manifest
slothfs-deref-manifest > /tmp/m.xml
ln -s /tmp/m.xml /tmp/mnt/config/ws
