NFR: iRODS support

#1 Post by darwinjob » 2020-02-11 17:38

Hi
Have you ever considered to introduce iRODS https://irods.org support in FileZilla/FileZilla PRO?

The only GUI tool capable of uploading large files into iRODS is Cyberduck

Best regards
D

First time I hear of this, seems rather niche. Can't iRODS in turn just implement FTP?

I guess they could.

I can also imagine cross-breeding these two to achieve FTP like functionality:
https://github.com/apache/mina-ftpserver
https://github.com/DICE-UNC/jargon

However, iRODS is more complex than that, for example there's a metadata (attribute-value-units triples, AVUs) feature which can't be mapped to FTP directly.
