ftpsync2d is a bidirectional tool to synchronize remote and local directory trees using FTP.

This project provides a tool to synchronize remote FTP and local directory trees in both directions. The tool is provided as a Python script (ftpsync.py) that can be useful for uploading new/modified files to a homepage host using FTP. The tool can also be used to download new/modified files (such as wiki pages) for backup or mirroring purposes.

In both usage cases, the tool requires write access to FTP server to create .listing files that are used to accelerate the synchronization process.

Usage

To learn about the options of the ftpsync.py script, run

sh> ftpsync.py --help

that will display

Usage: ftpsync.py [options]

ftpsync.py is tool to synchronize remote and local directory trees using FTP
protocol (see http://ftpsync2d.googlecode.com/ for updates). Both directions
are supported. Write access to FTP server is required. To skip processing
remote directories that one does not have read or write access, use --skip
option. When a new file was added to FTP server by other means than using
ftpsync.py, use --listing to update .listing files. Remote path must be given
in the following form: [ftp://][username[:password]@]hostname[]

Options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-u, --upload enable uploading files
-d, --download enable downloading files
-s SKIP_PATH, --skip=SKIP_PATH
skip listing specified remote (absolute) path
-l, --listing update remote .listing files

For example, to syncronize remote directory rdir in the FTP server ftp.example.com with the local directory ldir, run

ftpsync.py ftp://ftp.example.com/rdir ldir --download

When username and password is required, the script will ask. When there are files that are changed locally and should be uploaded, add --upload option to the command line.
