Ftp Synch Tool

post_id: 25 / post_date: 2009-09-26

A tool I wrote myself back in October 07, I find this a must have whenever I am working on a website. It tracks changed files and given a local and ftp base path, will upload all files.

It uses the following:

System.IO.FileSystemWatcher - to track modified files

FtpWebRequest - to create folders andĀ upload / delete files

HttpWebRequest - additional feature to get response for a url. It can be used to quickly test / debug code. Especially when xml has errors and will not be shown in browsers.

Essentially a one-day-application, this version is highly user-unfriendly with un-seeable triggers for functions (see Log_KeyDown and Files_KeyDown).

The source code can be had here.
