MediaFire Launches Open Source Toolkit for Linux

MediaFire, a popular cloud storage service, has launched its first open source toolkit for Linux.

The toolkit includes support for Ubuntu, Debian and FreeBSD and includes a number of tools aimed at the Linux and open source communities. A FUSE module and a shell-like interface (similar to FTP) represent two of the tools that offer developers a simple but robust way to manage files online. “As avid Linux users, we are huge fans of the open source community, and are excited to open up our award-winning cloud storage service to a new generation of developers,” Brent Bucci, MediaFire’s vice president of developers, told ProgrammableWeb.
