Exposing the Tooling API as a Mountable Filesystem


  • Jason Bury
  • Thu, Sept. 17 - 9:00 AM
  • Moscone West, 2010

Integrated developer environments and code editors that make use of the Tooling API, like the Developer Console and MavensMate, have made Apex and Visualforce development and deployment quick and easy. However, if you already have a preferred IDE or editor, how can you take advantage of the efficiency of the Tooling API? What if you need local access to your metadata or logs so you can process them with other utilities? This presentation will demo an open source utility that maps actions of the Tooling API to filesystem actions, by integrating the Tooling API with a custom NFS server. You'll see how you can mount your metadata on your local machine so you can treat it like any other file-- including existing Apex classes, Visualforce pages, Lightning bundles, Metadata containers for editing, deploying, and checking code, and log files. You'll see how to manipulate the data in your org using standard filesystem commands (ls, cp, rm, mkdir, etc.).
