I was quite happy when I found out that Finder had native support, but it didn't take long until I realized it was read-only access.

What is the best free option for automatic ftp sync with finder? I am using El Capitan. I'm not interested in very much functionality, just the ability to edit files.

  • So, do you want FTP acces? Or do you to be able to sync? Or do you just want the ability to edit files? – CousinCocaine Dec 12 '15 at 19:40
  • I want FTP access automatically syncing with a finder folder I can edit. Dropbox-style. – tjespe Dec 12 '15 at 23:20

TextWrangler

You can use BareBones' Text Wranger. It is a free texteditor with onboard ftp capability. TextWrangler is BBEdit's little brother, and BBEdit is one of the best text editors. I use this text editor at least since Mac OS 7.6 And, just like BBEdit, TextWrangler does not suck.

FileZilla, but beware of the adware in the installer, as its hosted on SourceForge. CyberDuck, in the App Store, is another good option; both support editing and syncing back to the server.

  • Is there a free version of CyberDuck? And can I have an automatically synced finder folder with FileZilla? – tjespe Dec 12 '15 at 17:15
  • Yes -- on their website, there's a Download button between the Windows download and the Mac App Store link. Sorry, I'd forgotten that the App Store version was for pay. And yes, there's a File > Synchronize option, though I've never used it myself. – Alphaman Dec 12 '15 at 17:45
