ftpmaster ========= ftpmaster is a very simple FTP-based content management system (CMS). In a nutshell, it allows privileged users to upload zip files containing content that others need to view in a read-only fashion. It stores old version of the content for historical context. ftpmaster is available under the MIT license (see LICENSE). Configuration ------------- ftpmaster was written against Python 2.7. It may work on Python 2.6 but am fairly sure I used a few features that were new in Python 2.7. First, copy ftpmastersettings.py.EXAMPLE to ftpmastersettings.py and adjust the settings according to your setup. Next, make sure you have all the dependencies (python-ldap and ftpdlib) installed. Finally, run the ftpmaster.py file. It will log everything to stderr in addition to the log directory you specified in the settings file. Usage ----- Anyone can log in as anonymous (password ignored), or anyone can log in using their LDAP CN (common name) and password. Only users listed in the UPLOADERS iterable will have upload privileges. (As a side note, ftpdlib is quite extensible and you can easily use a different authentication method if your organization doesn't use LDAP.) To upload new content (as a privileged user), make a zip file and upload it to the uploads folder. After the upload, ftpmaster will automatically extract the contents of the zip file to /current/yourzipname and /archive/yourzipname/timestamp+username. In this way, the /current folder always has the most recently uploaded data. Then, you can use a link to ftp://yourhost/current/yourzipname so that non-technical users will always have simple and direct access to the most recent files but they can also access old versions if need be.
