Command-Line Arguments

Command-line arguments for FileZilla Client would really be useful. It seems it would be a very easy straightforward feature to program (transferring from version 2). Is it not installed because FileZilla 3 is multi-platform? Is FileZilla written in C++? Is there anyway I can help put this feature in place?

FileZilla 3 is written in C++ and uses wxWidgets as multi-platform toolkit. If you do not have access to SVN in order to get the source code from there, you can download the source code as nightly snapshot from SVN at <>.

You are free to add feature to FileZilla yourself and then send patches to the patch tracker so that they can be merged into the repository if they are well done. If you have any further questions regarding FileZilla development, check the forum or our IRC channel, as mentioned on the contact page at <>.

Taken from:
[ 1860481 ] add sites from Site Manager to toolbar (with icons)

"Better yet, a command line ability to connect to a site in site manager via
icon on the desktop."

Commandline arguments have been implemented in FileZilla 3.

See the manpage or execute filezilla --help
