FTP/SFTP in CodeIgniter

#1
[eluser]dailygrind[/eluser]
Hi,
I'm developing an application that will need to transfer files. I don't know at the moment if will be an FTP or a SFTP protocol. How do you think I should design it using CodeIgniter? Is there an SFTP class in CI?

No, CI has no SFTP implementation.

Look his lib and create your own. Smile
I can help you if you need, i would be glad to help.

Hi thanks!
My idea was to develop a wrapper class so that I can use it in this sort of way but having of course both FTP and SFTP implementation behind it.

Code:
$transfer = new Transfer();
$transfer->connect();
$transfer->upload('/local/this.txt', '/remote/this.txt');
$transfer->close();

My idea was to name methods like this

Code:
private function _ftp_connect()
private function _sftp_connect()

and call them based on a config file using __call....

Is this a good approach?

My idea:
1 - Watch for the difference between STFP and FTP.
2 - Try to construct a lib with a parent class, reusing common methods (SFTP and FTP).

Good luck and have fun!

You might also wanna have a look at CI-Drivers. That's probably better fitting your needs. And in terms of the idea of drivers and libraries, a driver fits much better Wink

This would be just right for creating a CI Driver class.

@PhilTem and @InsiteFx

Are you brothers? HAHA!

Anyway, tell me: why is CI Driver better than CI Lib?
