Summary
-------
Use git-ftp to upload only the files to a FTP server, which have changed
since the last upload. This saves time and bandwith.


About
-----
I use git-ftp for my script based projects, mostly PHP. Most of the low-cost
web hoster does not provide SSH nor git support, only FTP.

That is why I needed a easy way to deploy my git tracked projects. Instead to
transfer always the whole project, I thought, why not only transfer the files
which changed since the last time, git can tell me those files.

Even if you are playing with different branches, git-ftp knows which files
are different. No ordinary FTP client can do that.


Known Issues
------------
 - Git Submodules are currently not supported. I am working on it.
 - See http://github.com/resmo/git-ftp/issues for open issues

Installing
----------
See INSTALL file.


Usage
-----
    $ cd my_git_tracked_project
    $ git ftp push ftp://host.example.com/public_html --user <user> -p <password>

For interactive password prompt use:
    $ git ftp push ftp://host.example.com/public_html --user <user> -p

Setting defaults for a git project in .git/config
	$ git config git-ftp.user john
	$ git config git-ftp.url ftp.example.com
	$ git config git-ftp.password secr3t

After setting defaults, push to john@ftp.example.com is as simple as
	$ git ftp push

For more options see:
    $ git ftp help
