What is FTPGrab?

FTPGrab ⚡ is a CLI application written in Go and delivered as a single executable (and a Docker image) to grab your files from a remote FTP or SFTP server to your NAS, server or computer.

With Go, this can be done with an independent binary distribution across all platforms and architectures that Go supports. This support includes Linux, macOS, and Windows, on architectures like amd64, 386, ARM, PowerPC, and others.

Because FTPGrab is distributed as an independent binary, it is ideal for those with a seedbox to grab your files periodically to your Synology, Qnap, D-Link and others NAS.
