Fusions For Mac
What is FUSE for macOS?
Fusion For Mac Os
VMWare on Thursday announced Fusion 12, the next major update to its virtualization software with support for macOS Big Sur and a host of other changes. The virtualization software maker originally.
FUSE for macOS allows you to extend macOS's native file handling capabilities via third-party file systems. It is a successor to MacFUSE, which has been used as a software building block by dozens of products, but is no longer being maintained.
As a user, installing the FUSE for macOS software package will let you use any third-party FUSE file system. Legacy MacFUSE file systems are supported through the optional MacFUSE compatibility layer.
As a developer, you can use the FUSE SDK to write numerous types of new file systems as regular user space programs. The content of these file systems can come from anywhere: from the local disk, from across the network, from memory, or any other combination of sources. Writing a file system using FUSE is orders of magnitude easier and quicker than the traditional approach of writing in-kernel file systems. Since FUSE file systems are regular applications (as opposed to kernel extensions), you have just as much flexibility and choice in programming tools, debuggers, and libraries as you have if you were developing standard macOS applications.
How It Works
In more technical terms, FUSE implements a mechanism that makes it possible to implement a fully functional file system in a user-space program on macOS. It provides multiple APIs, one of which is a superset of the FUSE API (file system in user space) that originated on Linux. Therefore, many existing FUSE file systems become readily usable on macOS.
Fusion For Mac Os
The FUSE for macOS software consists of a kernel extension and various user space libraries and tools. It comes with C-based and Objective-C-based SDKs. If you prefer another language (say, Python or Java), you should be able to create file systems in those languages after you install the relevant language bindings yourself.

Mac OS X Version?
16 discussion posts
I'm really missing displayfusion on my Macbook Air. Dear God, please make a Mac OS X version. Any plans?
We don't have any plans at the moment, but if we were to make a Mac version, which features would you be looking for?
I heartily second the request for a Mac version of DisplayFusion. I have three 28' monitors and often need to have 12–15 windows open at once. On my old Win7 setup, I could instantly pull up the window I wanted with just one click on its DisplayFusion taskbar icon. Now I need to use a Mac for work, and to find the window I need, I have to (a) find an open window in the same application as the window I'm looking for, (b) make that window active, (c) click-scan-click again in that application's drop-down menu on the Menu Bar. It's a constant drag on my mental processing.
I too love your program and hope that you guys will do a version for Mac. I would not mind at all to buy a separate license for our Macs
I third the request for a Mac version of display fusion. It would be great to have.
It would be nice to have the whole suite of wallpaper features. Also, one specific feature I'd like for my mac setup are the abilities to move individual windows to a monitor or all windows to a monitor using hotkeys. I play musical chairs with my monitors between my Mac and PC, so I come across instances where I have one monitor per computer and there are windows hiding in the unused monitor on the Mac or PC.

In Mac, there is an alternative software named SizeUp, which is not as good as DisplayFusion but not bad.
I made an account just to say this: I would LOVE a version for Mac. Though some features would be redundant as Mac OS X has similar customization features already, the function to quick switch windows between monitors would be fantastic to have. If you included the ability to change individual brightness of multiple monitors , that would seal the deal. To really top it all off, dynamic docks for each monitor (eg. two monitors side by side, two different variations of a dock on the bottom of each screen or the furthest edges left and right).
I will keep my fingers crossed, your Windows version rules and makes my work experience much more enjoyable. I can only hope to see the same type of quality program over on my Mac! Thanks!
Thanks for the kind words, and the suggestions! We still don't have any plans for a Mac version at the moment, but who knows what the future will hold
If anyone's running a petition to get Displayfusion for Mac add me. It's a whole new market for DF waiting to be filled.
I too would like to add my vote, most emphatically!
We need a version for the Mac, please!
I second the motion. A Mac version would be awesome!
I'll weigh in on this topic too and declare my support for a Mac OS X version of DisplayFusion. I currently use DisplayFusion on my Windows 10 laptop, and my Windows 7 desktop at work. However, after my frustration and disappointment with Microsoft tech support 2 years ago (they 'broke' my laptop Windows 10 installation), I went out and bought a MacBook Pro (I've used Macs before many years ago).
You asked about features for the Mac version. That's a great question, and maybe a challenge not only for you, but also for us users. Here are a few things:
In going through this exercise, I realized that any version of DisplayFusion on a Mac would likely end up either (A) having significantly fewer features compared to the Windows version, or (B) having a completely different set of features that are specific just to the Mac, with only a few features borrowed from the Windows version (i.e., desktop wallpaper).
Hope this helps.
Would also really, really like an OSX version. I constantly bounce between windows and osx and really miss having Display Fusion to organize / save window positions / etc
If it's possible to maintain the 'stay on top' feature on osx, that would be awesome.
Ok, here is an expanded list of features for the Mac OS X version. Anyone else have ideas? Let's list them.
Proposed features list
Two thumbs up for the MacOS version. I really miss the dock on each display working on my mac. I really need the ability to have the open programs on my displays show on those docks.
I guess DisplayFusion for the MAC did not happen yet?
New job. DisplayFusion lifer. New company uses Mac, so would love to bring over this utility and convert others.
Been using DF on my windows machine(s) for a while now. Just got a Mac and am planning on adding 2 additional monitors to it. I would LOVE to be able to use DF on my new Mac!
It's been about a year since my last post.
Does anyone else have a list of features to include in a DF for Mac version?
OMG yes please make a mac version. Just had to switch for work and I sorely miss the capabilities.
Oh, yes this would be excellent. I use both Windows and Mac as we are moving to Mac at work. I sorely miss the best Mutli-Monitor manager on Mac.
VERY OLD THREAD but I got something to say too!
I don't care about multi monitor crap, but I would LOVE and PAY MONEY to have a WALLPAPERfusion version for MAC OS so that I can display AMAZING ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY images in HIGH DEFINITION on my 65' Sony Bravia 4k HDR tv.
I currently own DisplayFusion and I got to tell you; the stars and galaxies and wonderous, awe inspiring imagery that gets displayed on my 27' QNIX QX2710 LED monitor is worth every DAMN PENNY the software costs and then some!
My settings: NASA Astonomy Picture of the Day on a 15 minute random rotation setting.
Expanded 2019 list of features for a Mac OS X version.
Anyone else have ideas to include?
Proposed features list
Just got a macbook pro at work. I'll pay double the windows price to get a mac version. I'm dying here. I need DisplayFusion on mac!
I have been working for four companies over the past few years in cyber security. Our industry is plaged by rotten apples. By that I mean that everyone loves Apple Security and has ditched Microsoft platforms pretty much across the board. This includes Symantec, a company with over 18,000 employees, my company today, which has over 400 employees, Centrify, a company with around 500 employees, and a ton of others.
We are ALL security and IT professionals stuck on a Mac. We have all experimented with multiple monitors all the time. (Show me a sales rep with a mac who hasn't dreampt of a product that would help out when doing a presentation on a projector where they needed to 'extend' instead of 'mirror'.)
The issue here is simple, Mac Multi-Monitor SUCKS. Every available tool bar out there to help with this issue SUCKS too.
We the world, and by this I mean a very large portion of the companies that have security concious people are BEGGING for something to help them get back to being more productive on a Mac. It is terrible to discover that all you can hope for is to have one monitor, and to have the existing doc randomly appear all over the place and never actually being there when you expect it. (Damned thing pops up where ever the heck it likes, and this is really tough when giving a technical demo, or running a webinar.)
So I am going to repost the feature list posted by others here, but I plan to show a very limited list because my request is modest. Just get me in the door with SOMETHING. And here is what I agree to pay:
1. $50 or so for the primary license.
2. $10 per year of maintenance.
3. $20 dollars on years you provide a significant uplift to the feature set.
4. With the above in mind, I would pay $100 out of the box for a 3 year license to get started, similar to a kick starter, and that with this, the hope is to get unlimited upgrades until the initial license expires, then hit the 10/20 maintenance plans once past the intial 3 years.
I look at this as a kickstarter to get you guys into helping us Apple Pies that are missing all the good stuff.
Proposed features list
Remove existing Mac Doc and replace with yours, or skin theirs to look like yours.
Don't care about wallpapers at this point.
A 'Display Fusion Button' with the option to have it on the left, right, top or bottom of however people decide to display their tool bars.
Tool Bar Positions of bottom, left, or right. Can't really do top, that has to be the Mac thingy.
Toolbar stays on top and forces windows to not fall behind, but snap the appropriate side of the app to the tool bar, whereever it is situated. (Bottom, right/left)
Button to send a window/app to the next screen.
A Shortcut to the MacOS task manager
A button that links directly to the Display Properties
A button that links directly to System Settings
The option to pin apps to the task bar.
The option to pin folders to the task bar.
The option to auto hide the task bar.
Access or a shortcut to the MacOS Command Line or Console.
If possible, a menu similar to the 'Start Menu' in windows with a button positioned on the left, top, or bottom of any given task bar.
A clock in the bottom right with DATE options.
That is about it, but let me just point out, if you built this, I would buy it, and if I buy it, it will be shown to THOUSANDS of people a year as I do demos, webinars, and workshops for my own customers. That will be multiplied by at least 100 people I know who would buy it in my company alone, regardless of if our company paid for it.
I will also commit to actively advocating for this product, writing articles, publishing blogs, and promoting it with videos on YouTube or anywhere else that is desired. I will also provide a customer testimonial to the product.
So come on, give it a whack! Hell, I will even buy you a Mac to work on to make this happen, as long as you agree to pay me back later after you blow out your year in green field new seats and revenues on this one...
And one more thing, if you were to do this, port your File Seeker program too, trying to find anything on a mac is HOPELESSLY frustrating! They have no contextual search, so if you want to find a file in a given folder, the minute you begin searching, you end up searching the entire hard drive EVERY TIME. So stupid.
I think a Mac version will be a huge success, specially in the software development and sysadmin community
I'd buy it. I got shamed into getting a macbook at work. Jury's out, but I want displayfusion.
