LiFSBrowse: A Visual, User Environment for the Linking File System
Source: University of California
The Linking File System introduces a new storage paradigm for enhanced user productivity through relationships between files, yet it opens up new challenges in usability. LiFSBrowse is a GUI for LiFS that attempts to meet those challenges through giving customizable graphical views of the file system. LiFSBrowse supports interaction through link manipulation and file system querying. The authors describe the layout of LiFSBrowse in detail and give some examples of its usability through a sample file system view.
