2.7.2
22 April 2019

Simple FTP-deployments for your smaller projects.

Overview

GitFTP-Deploy provides dead-simple FTP deployments for your smaller projects. While working with smaller sites you sometimes need a convenient way of deploying to a shared host where you don’t have access to SSH. The site is maybe a presentation for a company and does not receive regular updates.

What's new in GitFTP-Deploy

Version 2.7.2:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.11 or later

Fixed:
  • Better deletion of files
  • Setting of sync root dialog fixed
  • Typos
  • Better logging

I found this app to be very useful and have been using it in my current deployment workflow. In comparison to Deploybot or other sass services it is a great value for me as I am looking for a simple Git Deployment and rather not spend the time configuring the open source alternative. I do wish the app easily showed the deployment info (last commit deployed, date, time branch.. etc) on the main app window rather than digging for the logs. Hopefully we will see this in future updates. Overall, I am very happy with this app.

The app has a nice interface, is stable and works well, but ultimately - as has been pointed out several times by other users in previous reviews - it is too expensive for what it offers. The author insists on making price comparisons with 'DeployBot' - one of many online continuous-deployment services targeted at workgroups with multiple live sites. This is, of course, only one of many. Some of the others include FTPloy (mentioned previously), DeployHQ, and Bamboo. All of these charge monthly fees, but offer many features that go beyond this package - e.g., ability to deploy from SVN or Mercury, as well as git. The fact is, that if you are a developer using git, you are not afraid of complex tools, and is likely to have at least a passing familiarity with the command-line. If you are managing multiple projects on services like GitHub or GitLab, you'll know that these services also offer tools that you can use to setup your own automated integration-and-deployment scripts - and there is a wealth of materials online to show even the greenest newbie how to do that. But you don't even have to invest that much time or effort into your automated deployment. If you don't want to go and learn how to write GitLab CI/CD configuration files, then just use a tool like git-ftp, suggested previously. That is a free, open-source tool that is pretty powerful, and requires no configuration at all - you just have to learn the single-line syntax command to use when you want to update your site. I give this 3 stars, for the work that the author has put into developing the nice interface, making the app stable and performing its limited functions sufficiently well. There is definitely something to be said about an easy-to-use interface. But I deduct 2 stars due to the limited functionality, and the pricing - which the author stubbornly insists on keeping, despite user feedback.

Hi LuxLogica!

Thanks for your honest review and I am glad you are enjoying the interface and find the app easy to use! That's my primary goal.

Let me make some things a bit more clear: keeping a native up to date with macOS (like Mojave now) takes time. Also, I always try to have top-notch friendly support which also carries a lot of my time.

Another difference between something like git-ftp (besides its open source) and GitFTP-Deploy is that GitFTP-Deploy comes in a nice package. All the libraries like cURL are already compiled with SFTP and FTPS-support. No need to compile a custom cURL like you have to do with git-ftp.

It's 2018 and some of use are still using FTP, which I would never guess a few years ago. It's easy and gets things done. Most of my customers are freelancers working on smaller business' sites where there is no budget for big build flows, and they find the value of being able to deploy files and still use version control. And I if you don't see the value of GitFTP-Deploy, I think you should go for other options.

Since there is a free trial, you can download and see if it works for you and decide if you get value for money.

(Feel free to drop me a line on my contact form, I am open to feature requests)

All the best!

Indeed there is an open source alternative for almost everything if you like spending a "little" your time configuring on an open source project or get running within minutes; it's just how you value your time. Besides, you will get support. I make this software out of passion and that I needed it for myself, I have indeed checked the alternatives too.. I think you should compare GitFTP-Deploy more to a supported commercial SaaS-service like Deploybot which will cost you like around $180/year.

The *original* is actually a command-line tool, called "git-ftp", which can be downloaded freely from here:

https://github.com/git-ftp/git-ftp

While it's nice to have a graphical interface to configure and run the tool, asking for $20 to ultimately provide *less* functionality than the original seems not very good value-for-money... Still, if you hate the command line, and you only need limited functionality, then this might be a good fit for you.

Teksestro, indeed there is an open source alternative for almost everything if you like spending your time configuring go with the free options. If you like a supported software go with commercial software. I think $20 is great value for your money if you see how many hours I have spent this app programming and supporting my existing customers, I make this software out of passion.

Hi Timi! Comparing apples to oranges? FTPloy a SaaS software which is not free for unlimited projects. GitFTP-Deploy gives you unlimited projects for $20 once instead of 120 pounds/year.

That's true. FTPloy is way more expensive for the same functionality IMHO. ;-)
