Found a cool tool today that allows you to tail your application’s logs locally via FTP. The tool was created by Will Moffat, and it’s really a nice find! Usage is really quite simple:
ftptail -s 1 -f -p password.txt myAcount@ftp.tropo.com/logs/2011-03-24-1600.txt
The developer didn’t have this up on GitHub, so I went ahead and created a new project here. I also made sure to give Will full credit for his authorship! Please feel free to fork this bit of awesomeness, and if you make any improvements please don’t forget to send a pull requests!
