Changes since version 2.0
- Added new methods to the FTPHost class, namely makedirs, walk,
- The FTP server directory format ("Unix" vs. "Windows") is now set
automatically (thanks to Andrew Ittner for testing it).
- Border cases like inaccessible login directories and whitespace in
directory names, are now handled more gracefully (based on input
from Valeriy Pogrebitskiy, Tommy Sundström and H. Y. Chu).
- The documentation was updated.
- A Russian translation of the documentation (currently slightly
behind) was contributed by Anton Stepanov. It's also on the website
at http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/trac/wiki/RussianDocumentation .
- New website, http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/ with wiki, issue tracker
and Subversion repository (thanks to Trac!)
Please enter not only bugs but also enhancement request into
the issue tracker!
- The exception hierarchy was changed slightly, which might break
client code. See http://ftputil.sschwarzer.net/trac/changeset/489
for the change details and the possibly necessary code changes.
- FTPHost.rmdir no longer removes non-empty directories. Use the new
method FTPHost.rmtree for this.
What is ftputil?
ftputil is a high-level FTP client library for the Python programming
language. ftputil implements a virtual file system for accessing FTP
servers, that is, it can generate file-like objects for remote files.
The library supports many functions similar to those in the os,
os.path and shutil modules. ftputil has convenience functions for
conditional uploads and downloads, and handles FTP clients and servers
in different timezones.
ftputil 2.1 is Open Source software, released under the revised BSD
license (see http://www.opensource.org/licenses/bsd-license.php ).
