Description : FileSystem Abstraction System for Go
Package Afero provides types and methods for interacting with the filesystem
as an abstraction layer for the Go Programming Language.
It provides a few implementations that are largely interoperable. One that
uses the operating system filesystem, one that uses memory to store files
(cross platform) and an interface that should be implemented if you want
to provide your own filesystem.
It is suitable for use in any situation where you would consider using
the OS package as it provides an additional abstraction that makes it
easy to use a memory-backed file system during testing. It also adds
support for the http filesystem for full interoperability.
Afero has an exceptionally clean interface and simple design without
needless constructors or initialization methods.
Reason for packaging:
Needed by Go applications such as:
* Hugo, the static website generator, http://gohugo.io/
To be maintained within the pkg-go-maintainers team.
