SFTP/FTP upload plugin for brackets


  • Keep track of changed files in your project
  • Upload panel - you have total control over which to upload and which to skip
  • Server settings for each project
  • Store server settings in the brackets system preference file, not the root folder of your projects, so no worry about uploading your credentials to your git repo.
  • Right click menu command in your project panel, upload any specific file or folder you want.
  • Also a good sample code to learn how brackets works with node.

Getting Started

  1. Open Extension Manager by clicking the building-blocky icon on the right side of Brackets;
  2. Search for sftpupload;
  3. Click Install;
  4. Click the up-side arrow icon (on the right) to open the panel;
  5. Navigate to your project, click "Server Setup" button and fill in your server info;
  6. Now you can right-click on the files in your project, use Upload via SFTP to upload it to your server;
  7. If you change and save a file within the project, it will show up in the bottom panel; you can click "Upload" to upload this file, "Skip" to skip a single file, or "Upload All" to upload all changed files to the server.
  8. Shortcuts:
    • (Ctrl-Alt-U / Cmd-Alt-U) to upload the current opening file;
    • (Ctrl-Shift-U / Cmd-Shift-U) to upload all changed files;
    • (Ctrl-Alt-Shift-U / Cmd-Alt-Shift-U) to open up Upload panel.

Notes for translators

I noticed many people wish to translate this plugin - you are welcomed!

If you are comfortable with Github, you can fork this repo, create a new folder (with language code as its name) in /nls, and put another translated String.js in the folder. Otherwise you can translate String.js in any language folder (root for English) and send me the file (along with your name).
