Brains Web FTP/SFTP Client

Build Status

A web based, always online, FTP/SFTP client. Like really simple, kind of, filezilla, but for your browser. The main goal of this tool is: Install on a server/NAS/synology/raspberry/desktop and use it like a desktop tool. It can be installed on almost every device, including your server for example. Everything that can run nodejs can also run this client. I've mainly built this to run on my NAS because i just wanted to download huge data from a FTP to my NAS directly, without struggling with the command line and don't need to have opened my browser all day long.

Install linux

  • Download a realase zip (NOT the master repository zip, it will not work out of the box) and unpack to a directory and switch to that directory
  • Run npm install --production
  • Start server with ./wfc start
  • Stop server with ./wfc stop
  • Open http://IPTOSERVER:4340 in your browser

Install synology

  • Install the package node.js 4 via synology package manager
  • Via SSH terminal do the same as install linux. You can for sure use a shared folder.
  • Automatic boot on startup for DSM 6 or above
    • sudo ln -s $(pwd)/wfc /usr/local/etc/rc.d/web-ftp-client.sh && sudo chmod 0755 wfc
  • Notice: Some disk-stations have too low RAM and CPU to run this application at full speed. But at least constant 5MB/s download/upload should be possible.

Install windows

  • Download a realase zip (NOT the master repository zip, it will not work out of the box) and unpack to a directory and switch to that directory
  • Run npm install --production
  • Start server with ./wfc.bat
  • Close the .bat window to stop the server
  • Open http://IPTOSERVER:4340 in your browser

Development setup

  • Git clone master to a directory of your choice
  • npm install
  • npm run build (and also everytime you change some frontend code)
  • Start server with ./wfc start (Stop with ./wfc stop)
  • Open http://localhost:4340 in your browser
  • Changes in frontend require npm run build to be executed afterwards
  • Changes in backend /src folder require ./wfc restart to be executed afterwards

Development procedure

First, always talk with me/us. If you have an idea, don't go ahead and investigate much time for development. Maybe there is already something similar in development. Use GitHub issues to discuss about requests and bugs. Fork it, pull changes. There are some pre-commit hooks that don't let you commit your code that isn't passing our tests.

Code languages and standards we use

Troubleshooting

Linux: If you've installed nodejs and node as not available but nodejs is, than create a symlink with

sudo ln -s `which nodejs` /usr/bin/node
