    About build status still maintained

    Simple FTP client for node.js implemented in pure JavaScript. Useful for downloading files from a remote location, therefore it implements just a small subset of the FTP protocol. Includes a method, modeled after HTTP's HEAD in order to check the existence of a remote resource without downloading its contents. The ftp.head() method uses the FTP SIZE command which a RFC 3659 extension to the protocol, since 2007. However, in practice most FTP servers implement the SIZE extension before the RFC publishing date.

    Installation

    Either manually clone this repository into your node_modules directory, or the recommended method:

    npm install ftp-get

    Bug reporting

    Unlike 0.2 and before, the 0.3 version of ftp-get went through extensive testing with real world FTP servers. However, some edge cases may still fail. Therefore, in order to have a proper bug repot I'm kindly asking you to provide the troublesome FTP URL (if possible).

    I'd appreciate the output of this script as well:

    NODE_ENV=development node client.js ftp://example.com/ftp/url.foo
    // client.js
    var ftp = require('ftp-get')
     
    var url = process.argv[2]
     
    ftp.get(url, 'dl.bin', function (err, res) {
        console.log(err, res)
    })
