Active FTP Client

This is a very basic implementation of an FTP client.

It implements only active mode FTP, so unless you work with some old server setup, please consider using another library.

Inspired by https://github.com/mscdex/node-ftp. Use that for more common passive mode setups.

How to use

Create a client object first:

var FTPClient = require('ftpclient');
var client = new FTPClient({
    host: "192.168.1.123",
    user: 'user',
    pass: 'pass',
    client: "192.168.1.88",
    debug: false
});

Then you can perform one of the basic actions:

  • Downloading a file
client.download(filename, (error, contents) => {
    if (error) {
        // failure
    } else {
        // success, process contents
    }
})
  • Uploading data
 
client.upload(filename, data, error => {
    if (error) {
        // failure
    } else {
        // success
    }
})
  • Listing directory
client.list(directory, (error, list) => {
    if (error) {
        // failure
    } else {
        // success
    }
})

Remarks

  • Tested on vsftpd v2.2.2 and node.js v6.9.3.
  • Calling multiple requests simultaneously on the same client object is not supported.
  • There are not external necessary dependencies to run this library.
