ftputil is a high-level FTP client library for the Python programming language. ftputil implements a virtual file system for accessing FTP servers, that is, it can generate file-like objects for remote files. The library supports many functions similar to those in the os, os.path and shutil modules. ftputil has convenience functions for conditional uploads and downloads, and handles FTP clients and servers in different timezones.


The ftputil documentation is here.


To use ftputil, you need Python, at least version 3.6.


You can install ftputil with pip:

pip install ftputil

Unless you're installing ftputil in a virtual environment, you'll probably need root/administrator privileges.

To update the library, run

pip install -U ftputil

That said, you can use another Python package manager if you like. Adapt the commands accordingly.

Note that ftputil versions with a different major version number won't be fully backward-compatible with the previous version. Examples are the changes from 2.8 to 3.0 and from 3.4 to 4.0.0.


ftputil is open source software. It is distributed under the new/modified/revised BSD license.
