httpfs2 0.1.5

Mount remote files over HTTP

httpfs2 is a fuse file system for mounting any HyperText (HTTP or HTTPS) URL. It uses HTTP/1.1 byte ranges to request arbitrary bytes from the web server, without needing to download the entire file. This is particularly useful with large archives such as ZIP files and ISO images when you only need to inspect their contents or extract specific files. Since the HTTP protocol itself has no notion of directories, only a single file can be mounted.


Install httpfs2 0.1.5 as follows:

guix install httpfs2@0.1.5

Or install the latest version:

guix install httpfs2

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
