A Node.js package.

(Need sftp? Check out sftp-upload)

The most basic usage (stops uploading when an error occurs):

var FtpDeploy = require('ftp-deploy');
var ftpDeploy = new FtpDeploy();
 
var config = {
    username: "username",
    password: "password", // optional, prompted if none given 
    host: "ftp.someserver.com",
    port: 21,
    localRoot: __dirname + "/local-folder",
    remoteRoot: "/public_html/remote-folder/",
    exclude: ['.git', '.idea', 'tmp/*']
}
    
ftpDeploy.deploy(config, function(err) {
    if (err) console.log(err)
    else console.log('finished');
});

To be notified of what ftpDeploy is doing:

ftpDeploy.on('uploading', function(data) {
    data.totalFileCount;       // total file count being transferred
    data.transferredFileCount; // number of files transferred
    data.percentComplete;      // percent as a number 1 - 100
    data.filename;             // partial path with filename being uploaded
});
ftpDeploy.on('uploaded', function(data) {
    console.log(data);         // same data as uploading event
});

To continue uploading files even if a file upload fails:

config.continueOnError = true;
 
ftpDeploy.deploy(config, function(err) {
    if (err) console.log(err) // error authenticating or creating/traversing directory
    else console.log('finished');
});
 
ftpDeploy.on('upload-error', function (data) {
    console.log(data.err); // data will also include filename, relativePath, and other goodies
});
npm install ftp-deploy
