UNFINISHED: Upload files listed in text file
« on: August 19, 2010, 01:45:37 PM »
I've tried tons of different google searches but I can't find anyone that's tried this so here goes.

I would like a script that would read a text/xml file with content like this:

123.jpg
234.jpg
555.jpg
aaa.jpg
atr.jpg
etc.jpg

and upload via FTP the listed files from a set folder.
Possible?   ;)

Sounds like somthing you could do with Windows command line FTP

http://www.nsftools.com/tips/MSFTP.htm

I've checked a couple of the Gui type ftp like FileZilla that I use, and they are designed mainly to drag & drop files onto a cue.  But many file managers have ftp client built in now. You could check them out.  I know for sure FreeCommander does but I think it's a popular file manager feature now.

Do the files change often?  If not, you can do this easily via commandline FTP's built-in scripting (as MilesAhead mentioned).  There are MANY websites detailing this.  Here's one:

If you need something more custom written, let me know.

Yes, it's basically an xml file that changes daily.  It identifies jpgs to look for, and I'd like to upload only the files listed in that xml file.  So yes the images listed would change daily.

I could make you an AutoIt script for this.

Do you still need this?

I would make the script to work together with FileZilla FTP program, unless you have another free FTP program that you prefer.

@skwire: will Windows' command-line FTP app handle FTP that requires encryption? In other words, could it be used to upload files to DonationCoder via a script?

@shmuel1: I'd be interested in seeing your AutoIt script, if it can be used to cause FileZilla to upload files to a site requiring FTPES encryption.

No, I use Alex FTPS for that.  http://ftps.codeplex.com/

My apologies for not placing a link sooner.

Very old topic (I know) but just in case a solution was never found:
