A Ruby library for recursively downloading and uploading directories to/from ftp servers. Also supports uploading and downloading a list of files relative to the local/remote roots. You can specify a timestamp to only download files newer than that timestamp, or only download files newer than their local copy.
This was originally written to provide the functionality I needed for Munkey, a tool for tracking changes on FTP servers with git.
Allows you to supply a 'ignore' class that dictates whether a file is excluded from upload / download.
ftp = FtpSync.new 'my.ftp.server.com', 'username', 'password' ftp.pull_dir '/tmp/syncdir', 'path/on/server'
make some changes on server
ftp.pull_dir '/tmp/syncdir', 'path/on/server', :since => true, :delete => true :since => true - means only files which are newer than the local copy will be downloaded :since => Time.now - means only files which are newer than the supplied date will be downloaded :delete => true - means if the file is removed from the server, then the local copy is removed :skip_errors => true - means if file cant be read (ie permissions) it will be skipped
