Whoosh

Whoosh is an ultra thin wrapper for SFTPStream, with the additional benefit of being able to easily transfer in memory content to/from an SFTP server.

API

connect(<params>, <cb>)

Connect to an sftp server

Whoosh.connect(
  {
    hostname: 'sftp.example.com',
    port: 22,
    username: 'fred',
    password: 'secret',
  },
  (err, client) => {
    // profit :)
  }
);

See the ssh2 client docs for a full list of connection parameters

disconnect(<cb>)

Disconnect from an sftp server

Whoosh.connect(config, (err, client) => {
    client.disconnect(() => {
        // Disconnected
    })
})

isConnected()

Returns true when connected to the SFTP server. Useful for checking whether a previously established connection has dropped.

Whoosh.connect(config, (err, client) => {
  if (err) throw err;
  client.isConnected(); // returns true
});

isConnected(<cb>)

Asynchronous version of isConnected

Whoosh.connect(config, (err, client) => {
  if (err) throw err;
  client.isConnected((err, connected) => {
    // Check connected status here
  });
});

getContent(<path>, [<options>], <cb>)

Downloads the contents of a remote file into a variable

Whoosh.connect(config, (err, client) => {
  if (err) throw err;
  client.getContent('some/remote/file', (err, content, stats) => {
    client.disconnect(() => {
      if (err) throw err;
      console.log(`Downloaded ${stats.bytes} bytes in ${stats.duration} ms`);
    });
  });
});

The options parameter is is optional. When specified it is passed straight through to SFTPStream's createReadStream method.

putContent(<content>, <path>, [<options>], <cb>)

Uploads the contents of a variable to a remote file

Whoosh.connect(config, (err, client) => {
  if (err) throw err;
  client.putContent('some conent', 'some/remote/file', (err, stats) => {
    client.disconnect(() => {
      if (err) throw err;
      console.log(`Uploaded ${stats.bytes} bytes in ${stats.duration} ms`);
    });
  });
});

The options parameter is is optional. When specified it is passed straight through to SFTPStream's createWriteStream method.

exists

Reports on whether a remote file exists

Whoosh.connect(config, function (err, client) {
  if (err) throw err;
  client.exists('some/remote/file', (err, exists) => {
    client.disconnect(() => {
      if (err) throw err;
      console.log(exists ? 'File exists' : 'File does not exist');
    });
  });
});

Everything else

The client object is just a decorated instance of SFTPStream so all the other SFTP methods are available. e.g.

Whoosh.connect(config, function (err, client) {
  if (err) throw err;
  client.unlink('some/remote/file', function (err) {
    client.disconnect(() => {
      if (err) throw err;
      console.log('Deleted some/remote/file');
    });
  });
});

keyboard interactive

If the server requires keyboard interactive authentication you can configure this as follows...

Whoosh.connect(
  {
    hostname: 'sftp.example.com',
    port: 22,
    tryKeyboard: true,
    challenges: [
      {
        pattern: /^Username:$/,
        response: 'fred',
      },
      {
        pattern: /^Password:$/,
        response: 'secret',
      },
    ],
  },
  (err, client) => {
    // profit :)
  }
);

The exact challenge patterns will be server dependent.
