How to get Filezilla client source code?

#1 Post by pgaczi » 2015-04-28 15:21

1. I already have Filezilla client installed on my computer.
2. My anti-virus software rejects the filezilla_3.10.3_win64-setup.exe
3. How can I get the source code only?
TIA, Pete

I went to that link.
If I click there as before, I will reproduce the problem I described above.
I have no idea what a "trunk" is, or what to do with it.
If you know, please put more instructions on that page,
and tell me now.
TIA, Pete

From https://filezilla-project.org/sourcecode.php -
1. "svn co https://svn.filezilla-project.org/svn/FileZilla3/trunk filezilla" is not a valid URL.
2. "https://svn.filezilla-project.org/svn/FileZilla3/trunk filezilla" is not a valid URL.
3. "https://svn.filezilla-project.org/svn/FileZilla3/trunk/" takes me to a directory tree.

A. Do I really have to wade through all of that?
B. I really only want the code that handles SFTP file sending.
C. Do you have a zip file that gives me a MSFT VS VC++ project?

B. I really only want the code that handles SFTP file sending.
May I ask what you are trying to achieve? It's tightly integrated code and not much use if used stand-alone.

In case you want to use it in your own program, let me proactively remind you of FileZilla's license: https://filezilla-project.org/gpl.html

I primarily want to see the Windows C function calls that send a file via SFTP.
I would use that in my own commercial software.

BTW,
your presentation on your "download" web page is not clear at all.
TIA, Pete

There is no such functionality in the Windows API.
I would use that in my own commercial software.
You definitely need to read, understand and accept https://filezilla-project.org/gpl.html before prior to making use of any code from FileZilla.

If "open source" is not free, you should say so in large letters.
I can now see that Filezilla source code is not for me.
I still maintain that your download page is unclear.

BUT, I have used the Filezilla executables for many years,
and I am grateful.

Open Source is free. What is not allowed is taking parts/all from a GPL-licensed project and incorporate that into a commercial application, as that is effectively close-sourcing it.
