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-ftpscript --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-ftpscript');

Use matchdep load npm tasks is good idea.

require('matchdep').filterDev('grunt-*').forEach(grunt.loadNpmTasks);

The "ftpscript" task

Overview

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