FTP-Sync extension for VS Code

This extension allows you to easily synchronise your local workspace (project files) with an FTP server. It also has several advanced features such as automatic upload on save.

Demo of extension

Usage

There are four commands available. You can access them from the command palette (Ctrl+Shift+P on Windows/Linux).

You can also sync a single file by right-clicking on it in the left menu and using the "Ftp-sync: Upload File" and "Ftp-sync: Download File" commands.

Ftp-sync: Init

Initializes a default FTP-Sync configuration file in the .vscode directory. Options can be customised as follows:

  • remotePath - This can be set to the path on the remote that you would like to upload to. The default is ./ i.e. the root.
  • host - The hostname of the FTP server you want to connect to.
  • username - The username of the FTP account you want to use.
  • password - The password of the FTP account you want to use.
  • port - The port on the FTP server you would like to connect to. The default is "21".
  • protocol - The FTP protocol to be used. The default is "ftp" but you can also specify "sftp".
  • uploadOnSave - Whether files should automatically be uploaded on save. The default is false.
  • passive - Specifies whether to use FTP passive mode. The default is false.
  • debug - Specifies whether to display debug information in an ftp-sync Output window. The default is false.
  • privateKeyPath - Specifies the path to the private key for SFTP. The default is null.
  • passphrase - Specifies the passphrase to use with the private key for SFTP. The default is null.
  • agent - Specifies the ssh-agent to use for SFTP. The default is null.
  • allow - An array of escaped regular expression strings specifying paths which are allowed. If nonempty, unless a path matches any of these regular expressions it will not be included in the sync. Default value is empty, implying everything is allowed.
  • ignore - An array of escaped regular expression strings specifying paths to ignore. If a path matches any of these regular expressions then it will not be included in the sync. Default values are "\\.git", "\\.vscode" and ".DS_Store".
  • "generatedFiles": {
    • "uploadOnSave": true,
    • "path": "", [e.g.] "/build",
    • "extensionsToInclude": [] e.g. [".js", ".styl"] }

  • Contact me at vscode[at]lukaszwronski.pl

Please provide as much information as possible. We are dealing with diffrent ftp servers, file structures, file permissions, operating systems and it might be difficult to reproduce your error and fix it without detailed informations.

I'm looking forward to get any feedback from extension users! Contribution, especially on bug fixing is more than welcome!

Great thanks for suggestions and help with debugging for Martin, Allan, Maxime, suuuunto and all other folks who reported bugs or made improvement requests.


Use at your own risk - I do not guarantee that it will work correctly!
