What?

Crane is a Ruby gem for sending files through FTP without the hassle of clicking directory by directory and sendind file by file. It gets the bore out of your path :-)

Why?

We have projects in servers that, for particular reasons, can't access Github or a git repo, so Capistrano can't be used for deploying.

Most of them are small clients that demand basic designs, no dynamic programming, usually on shared hosting. After tiny changes, HTML, CSS and image files are sent via FTP. This is very boring.

How?

Crane analyses files in the current directory by date. Let's say you type:

    $ crane push today

Crane will send all files changed today to the server. Automatically.

Better yet, try this:

    $ crane push 1h

This will send all files modified in the last hour.

How to start

Get into your project root directory and type:

    $ crane init

This will inquire you about FTP informations. This configuration will be saved in a file called .crane in the same folder.
