methods

scp.send(options, cb)

Send a file to a remote host (in your ~/.ssh/config)

You must pass in options. A cb function is optional, and will be passed err, stdout, and stderr.

There are currently 4 options:

scp.send({
  file: './file.txt', // local file to send
  user: 'username',   // username to authenticate as on remote system
  host: 'myServer',   // remote host to copy to, set up in your ~/.ssh/config
  port: '22',         // remote port, optional, defaults to '22'
  path: '~'           // remote path to save to (this would result in a ~/file.txt on myServer)
});

scp.get(options, cb)

Transfer a file from a remote host (in your ~/.ssh/config) to the current computer.

You must pass in options. A cb function is optional, and will be passed err, stdout, and stderr.

There are currently 3 options:

scp.get({
  file: '~/file.txt', // remote file to grab
  user: 'username',   // username to authenticate as on remote system
  host: 'myServer',   // remote host to transfer from, set up in your ~/.ssh/config
  port: '22',         // remote port, optional, defaults to '22'
  path: '~'           // local path to save to (this would result in a ~/file.txt on the local machine)
});
