Deploy your files to a FTP server
Notice: Currently SFTP is not supported

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-ftp-push --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-ftp-push');

The "ftp_push" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named ftp_push to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  ftp_push: {
    your_target: {
      options: {
        // Task-specific options go here.
      },
      files: {
        // Target-specific file lists.
      }
    }
  }
})

Options

authKey

Type: String Default: None

Name of authKey that will be used for your credentials to access the FTP server. This name should match the name of the credentials you want to use in the .ftpauth file.

host

Type: String Default: None

URL host of your FTP Server.

dest

Type: String Default: None

Destination of where you want your files pushed to, relative to the host.

port

Type: Number Default: 21

Port for accessing the FTP server.

Usage Examples

Sample .ftpauth file

This file should be named .ftpauth and be in the same directory as your Gruntfile.js. It is a JSON object with an "authKey" that has a username and password for it's value. Use the following as a guide for setting up your file.

{
    "serverA":{
        "username":"myUserName@gmail.com",
        "password":"password123456"
    },
    "serverB":{
          "username":"myOtherUsername@gmail.com",
          "password":"12345Pass"
      }
}

Default Options

In this example, the default options are used to set up the necessary components of pushing files to an FTP server. This is meant to be very basic, the files you specify in files will be pushed one by one to host + dest.

grunt.initConfig({
  ftp_push: {
    your_target: {
      options: {
        authKey: "serverA",
        host: "sample.server.com",
        dest: "/html/test/",
        port: 21
      },
      files: [ // Enable Dynamic Expansion, Src matches are relative to this path, Actual Pattern(s) to match
        {expand: true,cwd: 'test',src: ['**/*']}
      ]
    }
  }
})

Optional Options

For your options object which normally looks like this:

options: {
    authKey: "serverA",
    host: "sample.server.com",
    dest: "/html/test/",
    port: 21
},

You can also not create an .ftpauth file if you choose and pass the username and password in this way:

options: {
    username: "myUsername",
    password: "myPassword",
    host: "sample.server.com",
    dest: "/html/test/",
    port: 21
}

Dependencies

This plugin uses Sergi Mansilla's jsftp node.js module.

Coming Soon

Adding in list of files to exclude from the upload.
Possibly adding in support for SFTP
