FtpClient plugin for Phonegap
The ftp client allows you to upload and download files from within your PhoneGap application.
A simple use case would be:
- Downloading a text file from a FTP server in order to be displayed in your application.
- Uploading a text file to a FTP server.
Adding the Plugin to your project
Using this plugin requires Android PhoneGap.
To install the plugin, move www/ftpclient.js to your project's www folder and include a reference to it in your html file after phonegap.js.
Create a directory within your project called "src/com/phonegap/plugins/ftpclient" and copy src/com/phonegap/plugins/ftpclient/FtpClient.java into it.
Add the following activity to your AndroidManifest.xml file. It should be added inside the <application> tag.
<activity android:name="com.phonegap.DroidGap" android:label="@string/app_name">
Copy "libs/commons-net-2.2.jar" into the libs directory within your project. You will also need to right click on this file in eclipse and add the jar to the build path.
In your res/xml/plugins.xml file add the following line:
<plugin name="FtpClient" value="com.phonegap.plugins.ftpclient.FtpClient"/>
Using the plugin
The plugin creates the object
window.plugins.ftpclient. To use, call one of the following, available methods:
/** * Upload a file with the specified URL. * * @param file The file to upload * @param url The url of the ftp server * @param win The success callback * @param fail The error callback */ put(file, url, win, fail);
window.plugins.ftpclient.put("test.txt", "ftp://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/test.txt;type=i", win, fail);
/** * Download a file with the specified URL. * * @param file The name of the local file to be saved * @param url The url of the ftp server * @param win The success callback * @param fail The error callback */ get(file, url, win, fail);
window.plugins.ftpclient.get("test.txt", "ftp://username:email@example.com/test.txt;type=i", win, fail);
