Enable user image features

Enable user image features#

This document points to various other bits of documentation on how to enable various features that involve modifying the user image. We should keep the documentation here fairly minimal, as it should all be upstream wherever possible.

Mount object storage as files with FUSE#


Consider if you actually will benefit from it before you do it

jupyterhub-roothooks can be used to setup object storage (S3, GCS, etc) as paths on the filesystem via FUSE.

This is mounted from inside the user pod, so will use whatever cloud permissions the user has. So to provide write access or access to private object storage buckets, we will need to configure appropriate cloud permissions. However, for just public object storage buckets, no extra permissions are needed.
