Simple and free plugin for FTP syncing. Just hit the save as usual and it's upped.

Recently new

  • Rewritten core execution code for brevity and clarity
  • Able to upload solely folders as well
  • Full relative path in status bar
  • Added protection from overwriting remote file by renaming
  • AfterSaveWatch for uploading changed files

What's there for you?

  • Multiple named upload targets
  • Ignored file regex patterns
  • Secure transfer using TLS
  • Determining newer remote files, overwrite protection
  • Manual multiple file & folder up/downloading (sidebar context menu)
  • Local&remote renaming
  • Progress bar for multiple up/download

Current focus:

  • Downloading from selected location
  • Safer downloading/uploading of files (tempfile)
  • SFTP support (hopefully soon)

For more info look into Wiki

How to use

To mark a folder and descendants for upload insert ftpsync.settings file in following format. Don't worry - the skeleton can be simply inserted using Preferences > Package Settings > FTPSync > Setup FTPSync in this folder or using context menu in Side bar or using Control/CMD+Shift+P.


    <connection_name>: {
        host: {string},

        username: {null|string=null}, // null means anonymous manipulation
        password: {null|string=""},

        path: {string="/"}, // remote root for these files

        upload_on_save: true, // whether upload on save or manually
        download_on_open: false, // checks whether there's a newer remote file on opening a file
        overwrite_newer_prevention: true, // overwrite protection when remote file is newer
        upload_delay: {int=0}, // delays [seconds] upload triggered by upload_on_save

        port: {int=21}, // remote port, pretty much always 21, unless SFTP
        tls: {bool=false}, // set true to use secured transfer, recommended! (server needs to support)
        passive: {bool=true}, // whether to use passive or active connection
        timeout: {int=30}, // seconds to invalidate the cached connection
        ignore: {null|string}. // regular expression, matched against file path - not applied for downloading

        line_separator: {string=\n}. // line separator for text files used in your project, usually \n, can be \r\n

        after_save_watch: {null|list<list<subfolder, filepatter>>=null} // after save watch
        // example: [ [ "code/assets/css", "*.css" ], [ "code/assets/", "*.jpg, *.png, *.gif" ] ]
        // more in Wiki

    } //,
    // <connection2_name>: { ... }

Files are automatically uploaded on save (unless disabled by upload_on_save=false setting). In your newly created settings file some options are preceded with //, this means they are commented out (and default value from global settings file is used) - remove the // to enable the entry.

  • Working from more places? Or in team?

You can either use download_on_open=true to check files upon openning or FTPSync: Check current file command to see whether you have the same version as is on all servers. Using overwrite_newer_prevention is also recommended (it's actually enabled by default).

  • Upload different language versions to different servers of paths

        <connection_name>: {
            host: "",
            ignore: "/locale/(?!fr)\\w+/.*"
        <connection2_name>: {
            host: "",
            ignore: "/locale/(?!cz)\\w+/.*"
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
