There will arise situations when you will want to share files between host and container. The solution is just a one liner.
When working with containers, managing file sharing between the host system and container
can often pose a challenge. However, there is an easy-to-use solution that simplifies this
process using just one line of code! This blog post will guide you on how to share files
effortlessly by leveraging Incus's `incus config` command.
It follows the following syntax:
## The One Liner Solution:
If you're looking to share a specific directory containing your container data, here is the
one-liner syntax for adding the file source and path within the container configuration:
incus config device add <container> <device name> disk source=</path/to/directory/> path=</mount/point/in/conainer>
incus config device add <container> <device name> <device type> source=/<path/to/directory/> path=/<mount/point/in/container>
To give you a better understanding, let's look at an example. Suppose we have a container
named `container1` and want to share files located in the `/srv/movies` directory with a mount point of `/mnt/movies` within the container itself:
incus config device add conatiner1 movies disk source=/srv/movies path=/mnt/movies
incus config device add container1 movies disk source=/srv/movies path=/mnt/movies
Or if you are feeling special, you can directly edit the config with `incus config edit <container>`, following the previous example:
## Alternative Method for Advanced Users:
If you're feeling adventurous and want to directly edit the configuration, Incus provides
an alternative method. With this approach, you can leverage YAML syntax within your
container configuration file with `incus config edit <container>`. Here is how it works using our
previous example:
