FileZilla Alfred extension

I’ve made a simple Alfred extension to open an FTP site in Filezilla. You only need to have it defined in your sites in Filezilla and pass its name as an argument to the extension.

For example if  you have a site whose name in Filezilla is “mywebserver” just call Alfred and write:

fz mywebserver

The extension will open FileZilla and connect to the site.

It uses the parameters you can pass to FileZilla from the command line (see this for details).

You may have to specify the folder where your site reside in in the Filezilla Site Manager.

You can download the extension here.

    Hi, I tried to download your script and got a filename of instead of an .alfredextension . I went and removed the .zip from the filename and tried to doubleclick on it to import it to Alfred, but Alfred said “Unable to import extension – the extension you are trying to import may be corrupt. Please try a different extension.”. I then went and opened the zip and noticed that the folder it contained was only called FilezillaOpenSite (instead of how the other alfredextensions have .alfredextension at the end of the folder). Tried to rename that and re-zip, but basically all I’m able to extract from your .zip right now is kudos.plist, icon.png and info.plist, nothing else.

    What am I doing wrong and is there a way you can provide a file that has the correct extension (.alfredextension) so that I’m able to import it to my Alfred? Would really dearly love to use this extension :)

    Thank You… seems like I’ve done something wrong zipping the extension…
    Can you try and redownload it? Now it is not zipped… You should only download and double click on it to import in Alfred…
    Let me know….
