remotefs is a library that provides a file system structure to work with all the most popular file transfer protocols. This is achieved through a trait called RemoteFs which exposes methods to operate on the remote file system. Currently, the library exposes a client for Sftp, Scp, Ftp and Aws-s3 as external libraries. You might be wondering, "why remotefs?" The first and foremost reason is to provide a generic interface over multiple protocols. For example, in termscp it allows the support of multiple protocols without any protocol-specific code. The second reason is that often, users just want a simple way to operate on a remote file system, however, they don't have the time to spend researching the ins and outs of each protocol.


  • Different communication protocols
  • Use only the client that you need
  • Adding new protocols is easy
  • Easy to setup
  • No need to understand the underlying protocol
  • Extensible and configurable
