Add FTP / SFTP into a workspace

Che has Midnight Commander installed in the Terminal, so it’s possible to use it to connect to a remote FTP server.

Just open your workspace in the IDE, go to the Terminal, execute mc and press F9 to call the menu. Select Left/Right window, select FTP Link.

Enter FTP server details in one of the following formats: shell username:password@host #for non-anonymous login; host #for anonymous login; !username:password@host #for servers behind the firewall, through proxy servers; username:password@host:port #for servers using non std port; username:password@host/directory #to go to specific directory.

Synchronize projects

Once you’ve connected to your remote FTP server, you can copy any files or projects between the /projects directory in your Che workspace and any directory on your remote FTP server.
