How to use FTP Simple In Visual Studio Code

By Raddy in Visual Studio Code ·

Being able to connect to a web server and make changes without having to download files, open them with a code editor and then having to re-upload is a big time saver. This is exactly what FTP Simple does – it allows you to connect straight to your server (local or not) and make website changes without wasting too much time downloading and uploading files.

This video will show you how to connect FTP in Visual Studio Code. This video is enough to get you started and use the core functionality of the FTP simple extinction in Visual Studio Code.

Plugin name: Ftp-Simple

    Hello Raddy,

    Video is helpful. Thanks for it. How do you remove the ftp sources from the file explorer after finish editing?

      Hey Juanda,

      I am glad that the video was helpful

      You can remove the FTP sources the way you add them. Press F1 on your keyboard and search for “ftp-simple: Config – FTP connection settings” then just remove the FTP details that you don’t want. The only way to be safe is to remove them. Clearing the editor history won’t help.
      If you want to clear the editor history too for some reason you can press F1 and search for “Clear Editor: History”. It doesn’t seem to work very well for me.

      I hope this helps

    Hello. FTP-simple works fine. But I have problem. I’am using Live Sass Compiler in VSCode. And this compiler don’t want work with php-simple. Do you have Idea how to combine their action.

      Hey Pawel,

      Are you doing a remote connection or have you set up a local working environment. You can do both with Ftp-simple and if you are only connecting remotely to do changes, I think that you would need to right-click and FTP Upload the files manually.

      I did another video on this explaining the local and remote working. If you are interested you can check it out here:

      I hope that you get it solved!

      Unfortunately not. I can’t find anything in the documentation. Maybe you can suggest it on their GitHub page.
