Anyone with a recommendation on an FTP client other than FileZilla that is Free Software Foundation / Libre / OpenSource approved for GNU/Linux?
@eastcoastweb There is always the good old command-line tool that is simply called "ftp" (netkit-ftp). Otherwise check the Category/Network-hookup/ftp category in the Free Software Directory: https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Category/Network-hookup/ftp
@eliasr True, but looking for something with GUI. Offerings appear slim to none at the FSF... I was hoping perhaps I was missing something. If not I guess sticking with FileZilla will have to do. It is listed there, looking to replace as much non-free stuff as I can.
@eastcoastweb OK let me try again 🙂
The default file manager in GNOME, called nautilus, can be used to access FTP servers. In the panel to the left in nautilus you choose "Other Locations", then you have "Connect to Server" at the bottom, enter e.g. "ftp://ftp.vim.org/" there. Maybe not as smooth as FileZilla but it seems to work.
@kaalki I would be fine with CLI, but I am transferring files back and forth so much as a web developer that not having a GUI would be a workflow killer (for me at least). We are talking about uploading a file, checking the website in a browser, making a change uploading again and again etc.
@kaalki I don't know. I manage a hundred or more sites. Many different servers, don't want every save to get uploaded sometimes.
