[ACCEPTED]-How do I add FTP support to Eclipse?-eclipse-pdt
Eclipse natively supports FTP and SSH. Aptana 7 is not necessary.
Native FTP and SSH support 6 in Eclipse is in the "Remote System 5 Explorer End-User Runtime" Plugin.
Install 4 it through Eclipse itself. These instructions 3 may vary slightly with your version of Eclipse:
- Go to 'Help' -> 'Install New Software' (in older Eclipses, this is called something a bit different)
- In the 'Work with:' drop-down, select your version's plugin release site. Example: for Kepler, this is
Kepler - http://download.eclipse.org/releases/kepler
- In the filter field, type 'remote'.
- Check the box next to 'Remote System Explorer End-User Runtime'
- Click 'Next', and accept the terms. It should now download and install.
- After install, Eclipse may want to restart.
Using 2 it, in Eclipse:
- Window -> Open Perspective -> (perhaps select 'Other') -> Remote System Explorer
- File -> New -> Other -> Remote System Explorer (folder) -> Connection (or type Connection into the filter field)
- Choose FTP from the 'Select Remote System Type' panel.
- Fill in your FTP host info in the next panel (username and password come later).
- In the Remote Systems panel, right-click the hostname and click 'connect'.
- Enter username + password and you're good!
- Well, not exactly 'good'. The RSE system is fairly unusual, but you're connected.
- And you're one smart cookie! You'll figure out the rest.
Edit: To change the default port, follow 1 the instructions on this page: http://ikool.wordpress.com/2008/07/25/tips-to-access-ftpssh-on-different-ports-using-eclipse-rse/
Install Aptana plugin to your Eclipse installation.
It 8 has built-in FTP support, and it works excellently.
You 7 can:
- Edit files directly from the FTP server
- Perform file/folder management (copy, delete, move, rename, etc.)
- Upload/download files to/from FTP server
- Synchronize local files with FTP server. You can make several profiles (actually projects) for this so you won't have to reinput over and over again.
As a matter of fact the FTP support 6 is so good I'm using Aptana (or Eclipse 5 + Aptana) now for all my FTP needs. Plus 4 I get syntax highlighting/whatever coding 3 support there is. Granted, Eclipse is not 2 the speediest app to launch, but it doesn't 1 bug me so much.
have you checked RSE (Remote System Explorer) ? I 2 think it's pretty close to what you want 1 to achieve.
I'm not sure if this works for you, but 8 when I do small solo PHP projects with Eclipse, the 7 first thing I set up is an Ant script for 6 deploying the project to a remote testing 5 environment. I code away locally, and whenever 4 I want to test it, I just hit the shortcut 3 which updates the remote site.
Eclipse has 2 good Ant support out of the box, and the 1 scripts aren't hard to make.
SFTP Plug-in: http://www.jcraft.com/eclipse-sftp/ :)
As none of the other solutions mentioned 6 satisfied me, I wrote a script that uses 5 WinSCP to sync local directories in a project 4 to a FTP(S)/SFTP/SCP Server when eclipse's 3 autobuild feature is triggered. Obviously, this 2 is a Windows-only solution.
Maybe someone 1 finds this useful: http://rays-blog.de/2012/05/05/94/use-winscp-to-upload-files-using-eclipses-autobuild-feature/
