MediaFire File Sharing Adds Open-Source Linux Support

MediaFire, an online backup service / file hosting and sharing site, has released a "Linux and Open-Source Toolkit" for developers.

MediaFire's open-source "toolkit" is a FUSE module and shell-like interface for accessing MediaFire storage via the command-line. MediaFire has tested this code on Debian/Ubuntu distributions along with FreeBSD.

Being implemented via FUSE (File-System in User-Space) the compatibility should be fine with other distributions too. When connected to your MediaFire account, you can then easily access all of your files through a file manager if not wanting to use their FTP-like CLI interface.

MediaFire open-sourced this code and is hosting it on GitHub. Those wishing to learn more about this open-source Linux support for MediaFire can read MediaFire's blog announcement from this morning.
