FTPClient

A fman FTP Client that uses the powerful ftputil library.

Usage

Commands

  • Open ftp location (open_ftp_location): Connect to a FTP server using the given URL.
  • Add ftp bookmark (add_ftp_bookmark): Bookmark current -or custom- URL.
  • Open ftp bookmark (open_ftp_bookmark): Open a bookmarked URL.
  • Remove ftp bookmark (remove_ftp_bookmark): Remove a bookmarked URL.
  • Open ftp history (open_ftp_history): Open a previous URL.
  • Remove ftp history (remove_ftp_history): Remove the whole connection history.

Connection URL

The URL must follow the format below:

ftp[s]://[user[:password]@]ftp.host[:port][/path/to/dir]

Features

  • Support for URL-encoded chars in user/password (e.g. @ -> %40).
  • Show extra file/directory attributes: Permissions, Owner and Group.
  • Connection pool under the hood for a better overall performance.
  • Bookmarks.
  • History.
  • File view/edit.

TODO

  • Allow setting file/folder permissions, if applicable.
  • Limit number of simultaneous connections to avoid ftplib.error_temp: 421 Too many connections from the same IP address..

Known issues

  • Currently there is no way to close an active connection.
  • When editing files, there is no way to know if a file has been edited. Must be uploaded manually through the popup.
  • Create file command shows an editing files is not supported alert after file creation, although file edition is enabled.
  • When in the root directory, the Go Up command raises an error.
  • Move to trash has been disabled on purpose, there is no Trash support.
  • Although there is -theoretically- FTP_TLS support, it has not been tested.
  • Passwords are stored in plain text when creating Bookmarks.
  • Passwords are shown in plain text in the URL (this can be mitigated using Bookmarks).
  • Currently ftputil is loaded from a frozen copy included in the plugin source pointing to the 3.4 version. I have not found a better way to include it.
