Another vote for Transmit.
Free transmit account to sync between machines.
Not sure if yummy has it but in Transmit you can mount a server folder in Finder so you can simply drag files around just like any other folder on your Mac.
Playing with Transmit, I can see why everyone, except that Forklift weirdo, uses it ;-)
In some folders there are files/folders that I absolutely must not delete. But sometimes do. Does Transmit have a way to tag a folder such that it can’t be deleted, without a warning?
Scenario is that I want to remove all RW published folders from a server for a clean republish, but I’ve forgotten that as well as the RW published folders there is also one called “storedonotdelete” that maybe contains all the clients online store files. But, it’s early, and I forget, and delete it. I then have to spend the rest of Saturday rebuilding it from a backup.
Be nice if there was a way to mark that folder somehow so it can’t be deleted without a big fuck off warning.
I was using the Mac Automator to upload until I realised that Transmit 5 (I just upgraded) had better sync feature. You can still use Automator to do calendar syncs but I don’t need that. Click the purple flower thing top right, have your desktop RW file on the left and your website public_html on the right.
I use both Transmit and Forklift and they are both excellent. Transmit is very Mac like and simple to use and more fool proof. I would say that Forklift has a lot moe useful tools and more features but has a more traditional FTP interface. It has a very useful 3 pane view and if you highlight a remote file it will be previewed in the 3rd pane. If its a text file it can be edited and saved in this pane which is quicker that Transmits open in an external editor. Forklift is also a very good Finder replacement amongst other things.
