File System Operations?

I see we can add and delete files to/from IPFS. How about other operations, like rename, make dir, remove dir, move, copy, etc? Will there be a Unix like file system tooling in the future?

Great question! For exactly this use case IPFS has the Files API. It’s still pending some more documentation, but you can explore it with go-ipfs by typing ipfs files --help, and can read a bit about it on this blog post.
