The openSUSE Hackweek is over and I have a working kio_sftp implementation using libssh. There is still work which needs to be done. I have to cleanup the code and test all the features (resume of files, recursive deletion). Today I’ve copied successfully the first files to my webserver!


I’ve uploaded the two files to my webspace, here. Remeber that it’s not finished yet! You need libssh’s v0-3 git branch to get it working. I’ve found serveral bugs during the week. I will release libssh 0.3.2 next week.

Thanks to Dirk Müller who answered all my question and helped me with the KDE stuff.

Benchmarks will follow soon too.

  1. I will try to test this soon, but have you considered renaming it to kio_lssh or something like that, even temporarily?

    That way you could install it in parallel with the current kio_sftp, to compare performance and features (recursive deletion, etc), and it would be easier to test.
