FTP upload to Sourceforge with PowerShell
The release system of Sourceforge.net requires to upload your files by FTP to upload.sourceforge.net. The process is basically a pure pain, especially for small files:
sourceforge.net is slow, upload.sourceforge.net is slow too.
you need to process your files by FTP whereas it could have been done much more easily through a simple web upload (at least for file that are less then 5MB which must account for 99% of the file released on sourceforge anyway).
if you want to re-upload your file, then you cant do it by FTP; you need to go through the SF.net web UI: first release the uploaded file, then delete the released file and finally re-upload your file (the process is maddening).
Anyway, here below is a PowerShell script that I am using to upload files by FTP to sourceforge.net. Save this script into ftp2sf.ps1, then from the PowerShell command-line, just type
.\ftp2sf.ps1 'myPackage.zip' and your file will get upload to sourceforge.net. Then, go through the sourceforge release interface and complete the process.
# ftp2sf.ps1 - FTP UPLOAD TO UPLOAD.SOURCEFORGE.NET
# Author: Joannès Vermorel
# .\ftp2sf.ps1 'myLocaFile'
Param( UploadFilePath=“filename”);UploadFilePath=“filename”);UploadFilePath = “filename” ); FtpUploadCommand = “PUT
"" + $UploadFilePath + "”“;
$FtpCommandFilePath = [System.IO.Path]::GetFullPath(“FTPCommand.tmp”);
FtpCommands=@(“anonymous”,“firstname.lastname@example.org”,“cdincoming”,“bin”,“quotepasv”,FtpCommands=@(“anonymous”,“email@example.com”,“cdincoming”,“bin”,“quotepasv”,FtpCommands = @( “anonymous”, “firstname.lastname@example.org”, “cd incoming” , “bin”, “quote pasv”, FtpUploadCommand, “quit” );
FtpCommand=[String]::Join(“‘r‘n”,FtpCommand=[String]::Join(“‘r‘n”,FtpCommand = [String]::Join( “`r`n”, FtpCommands );
set-content FtpCommandFilePathFtpCommandFilePathFtpCommandFilePath FtpCommand;
ftp “-s:$FtpCommandFilePath” upload.sourceforge.net;

[…] Das Script basiert auf einem Beispiel von Joannes Vermorel. Ich habe es nur ein wenig erweitert. Das fertige Script sieht nun wie folgt aus. Es benötigt lediglich einen Parameter: up oder down. […]

What does the line - FtpCommand=[String]::Join(“‘r‘n”,FtpCommands ); do?

The [String]::Join commands adds line returns at the end of each command.
