  • Idea obtained from: this post
  • This program will parse a selected text file & then upload those file names within said folder.
  • EXE must be in the folder of the images to be PUT via FTP.
  • Uses cURL for the PUT
  • Clears variables at the end so that nothing is stored
  • ESC key is the exitapp hotkey

Typical txt file: (only file_names & ext)

Question: can another program invoke FTP File Uploader, specifying a text file (containing the names of files to be uploaded) as an argument?

This looks fascinating. I potentially have a project where I have to upload bunches of files and doing it by hand is a pain!

Tip: a "Directory Reader" can read the contents of the folder, then create that text file. For example I use "Karen's Dir Reader" but I am sure there are others. (You may just have to fiddle with the setting to turn off "too much info" in the output file.)

So then you can maybe run the dir reader, then run this, and off the files go!

I love "chaining" apps. ("New chains for the new year!")
So as an extreme example:
- you do web research with a whole bunch of Firefox Tabs
- then you run Miles' BBSS that produces Text File #1 with matching titles and Urls where you got them from
- then run my PDF maker to turn those webpages into (hopefully readable!) Pdfs
- then you run the dir reader to get the file list, then run this to upload it all into your server/etc!

Very cool that this got reviewed & could help someone out.  Thank you for the notice!

Sorry for the delay kyrathaba, nothing at the moment works besides cURL.

Here's an updated exe. (above)

Quote
"Though I liked the concept of putting the files on to a file and uploading them, however it would had been better if there was an option to mention the FTP server’s address, username and password so the repeated task of typing in the details could be avoided." - Shine

Implemented & added the suggestion.  I agree that it would help the user especially if you're only using the same ftp.



Enjoy!
