An FTP plugin for fman

fman user Cristian Moncho Ivorra just published an FTP plugin for fman! It supports anything you'd want from an FTP client: down- and uploading of files, deleting them etc. Amazing!

The plugin uses fman's file system API. Anybody can use it to extend fman in very powerful ways. It required a lot of effort to implement, but Cristian's plugin is a testament that it was worth it. After he published the plugin, I got in touch and asked what he thinks of the API. Cristian said he really likes how it is structured and that he finds it clean, powerful and intuitive. I'll give this praise right back: Cristian's code is very well-written. I highly recommend to anybody who is interested to check it out.

If you would like to install the plugin, please see here for instructions. It is easily doable in less than 30 seconds.

In other news, I'm still working hard on implementing nice progress bars for file operations in fman. Stay tuned!

Michael started fman in 2016, convinced that we deserve a better file manager. fman's launch in 2017 was a huge success. But despite full-time work, it only makes $350 per month. The goal for 2018 is to fix this.
