Easier editing

Multiple choice

With FileZilla, I can...


... permanently erase files from an old computer, so a hacker won't get hold of them.


...destroy Tokyo.


...take HTML files I made on my PC, and get them onto my server.

Not graded. So why do it?

Files on your PC to the server

Here's what we have so far.

Sync local and remote files

You can work in a folder on your PC, then upload the entire folder to your server. One thing to keep in mind: use nice file names. Lowercase, no spaces.

We can make it even better, though. We can open the local folder in Atom, make subfolders, HTML files, etc. We can do (almost) all of the work in Atom, then drag the entire folder to the server. Nice!

The workflow

Now we have a complete workflow.

Complete workflow

  • Create a folder for an exercise
  • Open it with Atom
  • Use Atom to create the files
  • Upload everything at once with FileZilla
  • Behold the magic on the server

We'll talk more about Atom later in the course. Feel free to play around with it, though



Fun with Atom

Make a folder on your PC, called doggo-magic. Inside it, make an HTML file called zeb-the-magic-doggo.html.

Take a screen shot of Atom with the file in the folder. Something like this one:


Upload your screen shot.


  • We have an entire workflow:
    • Prepare HTML on your PC with Atom
    • Upload to your server with FileZilla
