Well its been a while since I’ve written anything for WebSoftware, but I’ve been working on a Ftp tool for quite sometime, unfortunately due to work and university commitments I never got around to finishing up the product.
Here’s a little teaser shot of DevFtp, a tool written for developers and goes on a slightly different path to conventional FTP editors in the market today.
The goal of the product is to assist web developers and those who maintain alot of content to easily edit/manage transfers all within the same editor. The core internals & xFtpx engines have been completed, written in .NET 2.0 in order to maintain maximum compatibility with older versions of Windows.
As of writing the GUI your seeing there is current but various tweaks are being conducted to assist and do things differently, its just a teaser for now. The idea is to keep the GUI to be as simple and straight forward as possible.
Thus far theres support for Ftp (duh!), SFTP (Ftp over SSH), FTPS (SSL) Implicit & Explicit.
The editor provides full queuing of work items, synchronising of remote/local fodlers and syntax highlighting – pfft thats a given! – using the same Syntax Highlighting engine that will feature in the upcoming (:O) HotHTML 4 product. More information on both products will be released as time goes on but at this stage no dates are set for betas or public releases.
