Create APFS/HFS+ partition on Linux and share it via network


This Content is from SuperUser. Question asked by Benjamin J.

I want to store all my files and documents on a local server at my home instead locally on a single PC.

Now I’m wondering if it’s possible to create a APFS or HFS+ partition on a Linux system (like Debian) and then share it via network, so I can access it from multiple macOS and Windows systems.

Alternativelly I also thought about sharing a ext4 partition via Samba but then I will get this annoying Apple Double Files. I know that there are tools to get rid of these files, but I thought maybe I can directly share a APFS or HFS+ partition.
